Answers To Your Questions

A lot of offer emails have gone out, here are the most common questions, and the answers.

Are there job descriptions available?
Look on the sidebar for the list of companies. Many of the companies have job listings on their individual sites.

What is the format of the actual interview process?
You will interview with each of the 20 companies for about 15 minutes each. At the end of the day, you can hook back up with your favorite companies for dinner.  Hopefully you’ll be flying out in the afternoon/evening of day 3 of your trip, so that you can follow up with some companies on that day as well.

Will I be sharing a room?
Only if you ask to share a room.

Can I bring my spouse?
Sure, but please don’t bring them to the interviews themselves unless (unless they were also invited) – they’ll have to find something else to do on the second day of your trip, which you’ll spend meeting the 20 startups.

Why are there 2 dates listed for the event?
It is a week long event, but you are invited to come for just three days.  We stagger this so you have more time with the hiring companies.

Can I fly in and out from different locations?
Sure – as long as you don’t sneak any visits to Hawaii in the middle. We reimburse up to $400

What time should I fly in/out?
Ideally, you should land in Denver on Day 1 of your trip in the late afternoon, and you should fly out on Day 3 in the early evening.

Will there be organized events to get to know Boulder, or am I on my own?
There will be nightly organized events for you, as well as some time to explore on your own.
