No need to stay complacent in your current role. Austin tech has plenty of exciting opportunities across finance, customer success, engineering, operations, sales, product, design, HR and more.

Fire up those resumes and check out the roles available at these five growing tech companies in search of top talent like you. 

 

What they do: If you’ve ever worked for a restaurant, then you know the struggles of trying to get your shift covered. It can be messy. However, HotSchedules' labor management software for restaurant helps keep things running smoothly, offering a platform that makes it easier to schedule (and reschedule) your team, hire hourly employees, train with the help of an e-learning solution and provide analytical insights that can improve a business’s bottom line.

Why you want to work here: Three words: promote from within. HotSchedules’s management team is constantly on the lookout for team members that exemplify leadership qualities who they can continue to nurture. Additionally, the company flexes an open PTO policy, 401(k) matching opportunities, a collaborative and open work environment and paid days off to volunteer at a nonprofit of your choice.

A note from HR: “We look for self-starters who have what we call the hospitality gene,” said director of HR Granya Gormley. “Unlike many tech companies, your restaurant job you had in college actually counts here. We look for people who share our company values. If you'd like to join our mission of empowering service-based organizations to master their operations, engage their teams and recapture work-life balance, then check us out!"   

 

 

What they do: Fans of music, comedy, festivals and sports can find and purchase tickets for live events using TicketCity’s marketplace by searching for nearby events, venue names, event name or artist. The company launched in 1990 and sells tickets for over 100,000 events.

Why you want to work here: In addition to perks that include an office ping pong table, putting green, arcade game and in-office TVs streaming sports coverage and concerts, all TicketCity employees receive a quarterly $200 ticket credit to events sold over the TicketCity platform. Plus, you’ll get to exercise your competitive spirit in office trivia events, pop a shot tournaments and bowling competitions.

A note from the boss: “Our ideal employees possess a unique combination of self-motivation, intelligence, grit and passion,” said CEO and founder Randy Cohen. “We also look for genuinely nice people that we want to work with every day. Culture is fundamental to our success and we look for team members that value empowerment, adapt quickly to change and like to have fun. If you own your work and take initiative on new projects you will thrive at TicketCity – and a strong ping pong game doesn’t hurt either!”

 

 

What they do: Acquired by Experian last August, CSID develops cyber security solutions that protect against identify theft, credit fraud and data breaches for individuals and enterprises. Founded in 2006, the company has offices in Austin, Costa Mesa, San Diego and London.

Why you want to work here: While working to protect a global clientele base against the rising levels of identity theft, all CSID employees will also be covered — for free — under CSID’s protection services. On top of that, CSID’s benefits include paternity PTO, 401(k) match, monthly happy hours and team building events, and you’ll get to work out of their new office located off Mopac near Zilker Park — which boasts an on-site gym.

A note from the boss: “CSID, a part of Experian, has a rich history of success and delivery and is the global leader of identity protection and identity management products,” said Joe Ross, president. “But what makes it all happen is our amazing employees. We attract the best because they enjoy working with other bright, energetic and talented employees. We look forward to continuing to recruit top talent to help us grow our team.”

 

 

What they do: For more than 15 years, LegalZoom has provided an online platform to help people find legal assistance. Their most popular services include trademark applications, personal estate wills, corporation filings, and attorney advice that includes pre-paid, 30-minute legal consultations. 

Why you want to work here: The company's benefits are built to look out for you, your family and your future. LegalZoom provides medical, vision and dental plans; life and AD&D insurance; disability insurance; a flexible spending account; retirement saving plans and an employees assistance program. Those on the LegalZoom team also enjoy an on-site gym, half-court basketball court, a Zoomer cafe stocked with snacks and bagel Fridays. 

A note from recruiting: “We’re looking for candidates who thrive in a fun and challenging environment and who are eager to collaborate with others to solve the many problems still facing the legal industry,” said Lisa Fernandez, director of talent management. “Zoomers are driven by the LegalZoom mission of democratizing law and eager to make a difference in people’s lives. With unique perks such as community service PTO, an on-site gym, a subsidized café, and birthday holidays, LegalZoom makes it easy to maintain a healthy, purpose-driven work-life balance.”

 

 

What they do: With offices in Chicago, LA, New York, San Francisco and their headquarters in Austin, theCHIVE/Resignation Media has departments heading digital media, e-commerce, charity, live events and even their own brewery. The company established its roots in 2008 and has since developed into a 170-person, full-fledged digital media company.

Why you want to work here: They've got two stocked bars with their own KCCO beer on tap located in a downtown office along the river. Bonus points include an open PTO policy, competitive salary and health benefits.

A note from the boss: "Here at Resignation Media, culture is paramount,” said CEO Leo Resig. “We are very picky about who we hire because, at the end of the day, we care more about how people fit within the company than how their resume looks. We look for candidates who are positive, motivated, proactive and smart as hell. Those who can hold their own at the ping pong table and can put down a few beers during happy hour are a plus."
