  • (1888PressRelease) August 07, 2010 - Despite last year's recession and general uncertainty about the economic future, one Boulder County business is still booming. Amadeus Consulting, a custom software development company based in Boulder, has grown by almost 50 percent this year and is still hiring.

    "We're actually having a hard time hiring people fast enough," said Anna Luthens, HR Coordinator at Amadeus Consulting. "Normally we can find the right people through our normal networks, but now we really have to reach out and it's getting harder to find enough people to fill the positions we have available."

    According to Luthens, part of the trouble is that there are not enough people with high-tech and creative skills looking for work right now. Since Amadeus Consulting creates custom software for a wide range of clients, it needs to recruit people who are very skilled in specific technologies, and who also have a broader range of experience with many other technologies.

    Luthens also offers these five tips for people who are applying to the company, or any similar position:

    • In a client/customer facing company, we value communication skills and your ability to explain challenges and success to a client with a limited technology background. For us, that doesn't mean you'll be doing IT or Customer Support, but communication skills do matter.

    • We value people who are able, willing, or interested in learning new skills, or working on new types of projects. Being able and willing to learn in the technology industry is vital as new technologies emerge and standards change.

    • Almost everything we do is collaborative. Being able to work independently is important, but being able to contribute in a group environment is vital.

    • Please read every job description carefully, and make sure your resume or cover letter answers each of the requirements. Or if you have any questions about the requirements or the position, it is okay to send an email and ask questions too.

    • And as always, when applying to a job, it is always important learn a little bit about the company and the culture ahead of time.

    "Amadeus Consulting creates custom software solutions where no other solution exists," said Lisa Calkins, CEO at Amadeus Consulting. "We've been doing it successfully for 16 years, and our clients have come to expect that we can we can build a solution for them, and so we need to be able to provide the skill, experience, and expertise that can meet the challenge. From a recruiting standpoint, this means that we have a tough interview process, but we definitely reward those that make it through."

    The software developers at Amadeus Consulting enjoy the challenge and value the experience. One developer commented that "It's been great. We work with some of the biggest names in the industry, and have been involved with some amazing projects. It's great not to be pigeon-holed into one thing, and I've been able to work on a wide range of projects with many very intelligent people."

    General open positions at Amadeus Consulting can be found at their careers page at, and the company is also hiring for a web and graphic designer position which can be found at, and for a mobile developer at .

    According to Luthens, the mobile developer should be someone with previous mobile experience, or someone with a background in the related technologies who is interested in joining our award-winning mobile team. In addition to a creative background, applicants for the graphics designer position should also have a strong technology-based background, and will join our experienced web team.
