When it comes to searching for top talent, tech companies are beating a path to Washington State. The latest to open an office in Puget Sound is ClearSlide, a company using cloud-based technology for its business tools. ClearSlides’s COO, Dustin Grosse, echoes the feelings of so many companies opening offices in Seattle area: “It’s home to the deepest technical talent pool outside of the Silicon Valley.” The list of companies seeking that talent keeps growing.
And Washington’s online retail innovators have set the standard for cloud technology. Those on the server side are attracted to Washington’s low energy rates and on the software side, there is the incomparable depth and breadth of talent and expertise. Recent posts on choosewashington.com have reported on the dynamic synergy that happens when so much talent and cutting edge ideas inhabit the same community and frequent the same coffee shops. See yesterday’s post about the partnership forged between Valve and HTC.
From business legends like Microsoft and Amazon to the pioneering entrepreneurs with the next breakthrough idea, Washington State is a leader in successfully bringing technology to the marketplace.
