Why Blue Matador

We’re a tech startup focused on disrupting the landscape of DevOps monitoring tools. Blue Matador won $100k in the third-annual Start Madness Competition, the premier startup pitching contest sponsored by Utah’s Silicon Slopes. And we’ve been featured on BetaList, Crunchbase, and F6S. Our seasoned leadership comes from one of the top software companies in Utah. We’re new, we’re agile, we’re motivated, we’re funded, and we need the skills that you have.

If you like fast-paced startups, free Minecraft licenses, amazing board games, unlimited snacks, and Friday company lunches, you’ll like us. If you are talented, motivated, and intelligent, we’ll like you.

Join the Team

We’re always looking for the best and brightest people, even if there’s not a specific job listed. People can contribute in a variety of ways and take ownership of many things. So, if you’re top-notch, love getting things done, and love getting both stock and salary at a startup, send your resume or website link directly to our CEO: matthew+careers@bluematador.com.
