About This Event

Looking for technical talent to help your team? Involved in growing the tech talent pipeline in Colorado? Then this event is for you.

Kenzan and General Assembly have partnered to address the digital talent gap in Denver and discuss actionable solutions for Colorado companies looking to hire developers, designers, product managers, data analysts, and other technical talent.

According to The Denver Post, “In Colorado, one of the most in-demand STEM careers is computer science. Colorado currently has more than 16,000 open computing jobs, and the average salary of these occupations is $92,000. By contrast, the overall average salary in Colorado is around $50,000.”

From developers to designers to product managers, the shortage and unavailability of digital talent in Denver is high, but not insurmountable. Join us as we talk about what is being done to close the skills gap, how tech companies can skill-up their current employees, and learn more about the talent landscape in Colorado.
