Some of New York City’s fastest growing, innovative tech companies are hiring in droves. Here are five tech companies that are on the hunt for new talent this month.
What they do: Crowdtap runs a people-powered marketing platform, where brands tap the power and creativity of their biggest fans to inspire authentic social advocacy.
Coolest perks: Unlimited PTO, dog-friendly office, flexibility to work remotely, weekly breakfasts, full medical benefits, and a 401(k).
Note from an insider: “The ideal Crowdtap candidate has an entrepreneurial mindset,” said Nneka Ogbourne, Director of Talent Acquisition. “They love to collaborate and are highly motivated. We all own a piece of the pie and should be passionate about driving the business forward.”

Coolest perks: Team outings, self-managed paid vacation, sick time and a gym membership.
Note from an insider: "We are doing something no one has done before, so the key thing we value in employees is their interest in learning,” said Alex Poon, COO and co-founder. “This could be anything from a new coding language to figuring out how to master a new acquisition channel. It's about being curious."
What they do: Namely is an all-in-one platform for cloud-based HR software. The company works with 'middle-market' companies, meaning small to medium-sized business with 50-2,000 employees, to provide a one-stop-shop for HR, payroll and benefits.

"We want people who are multi-dimensional and ambitious in achieving both personal and professional goals. We’re growing and we want you to grow too."
