by Quinten Dol
September 5, 2018

Whether you’re already working in the Seattle tech industry or looking to break in, you’re not exactly starved of options. In fact, you might actually be spoiled for choice.

Take this list of Seattle-area tech companies, for example. Want to work for a post-IPO giant? We’ve got a couple right here. How about a smaller startup? We’re all over it. Have we got a company that helps continue your education? Surely do! And what about commuter benefits? Yesireebob. Could we keep asking ourselves leading questions all day? Probably, but you’ve been through enough already.

Instead, we’ll let you check out these six tech companies — all of which are hiring right now in and around Seattle.

Their tech stack includes JavaScript, AngularJS, Angular, Ionic, Java, Tomcat, MySQL and AWS.

Who they’re looking for: “We’re looking for hungry folks (mostly figurative but also literally… we don’t want any leftovers at our weekly team meals!) who can operate independently, work cross-functionally and execute on our mission of removing the hassle of car ownership — whether by improving the way we process refunds, tweaking the user experience, ordering parts on the fly or tackling monthly financials,” said VP of Marketing and Business Development Casey Willis. “Our people are problem solvers from a diverse set of backgrounds. We are very excited to keep expanding the Wrench team.”
