If you've been feeling a bit unsatisfied with the daily grind at work, then it's time to look for a change. Lucky for you, these five Austin tech companies celebrate successes across all departments, value those they employ, and they're hiring motivated individuals like yourself who appreciate the fast paces and changes of a startup community. 

 

What they do: WP Engine develops managed services for premium websites built on WordPress. Today, approximately 5 percent of the online world visits a website powered by WP Engine every day. Globally, over 350,000 digital brands trust WP Engine with their online reputation across 136 countries and counting.

Why you want to work here: WP Engine believes their environment is a place where the best get better. Through diversity and inclusion, WP engine recognizes that all of their employees bring something unique to the table that further drives the success of the company. They ensure their teams are heard. 

A note from recruiting: "Our ideal candidate has the entrepreneur mindset and is always looking to innovate, " said Michael Newman, recruiting operations. "Our teams are dynamic and work cohesively to make a larger impact on the organization, so being a team player is critical. Everyone helps out. Lastly, we offer an open and welcoming atmosphere for you to bring your whole self to work. If you're looking for a place where you can innovate, make an impact, and be yourself we encourage you to apply today."

 

What they do: The team at Virtuix launched the first of its kind active virtual reality mobile platform called Omni. Users control their actions in VR through first person navigation like running or walking. 

Why you want to work here: In addition to plenty of game testing, Virtuix employees can expect weekly team building events like breakfasts, lunches and happy hours, quarterly company-wide events to celebrate successes, and a casual work environment. All employees get medical, dental and vision insurance plus a 401K plan with matching. 

A note from the office: “We’re looking for employees who are passionate about gaming, innovation and virtual reality," said Angela Melpoder, administrative manager "We are disrupting the way we game, exercise, work, meet and live – our employees all want to be a part of that.”
