Pivotal Labs growing in Denver

Pivotal Labs is adding to its Denver staff in 2014.

The San Francisco-based company has about 35 employees in Denver, says Mike Barinek, Midwest Director.

"The Pivotal Tracker team has been on Platte Street since summer 2010," says Barinek. "Last year, we brought in Labs as well."

Pivotal Tracker has 15 local employees focused on the development tracking product. Working on custom software projects, Pivotal Labs' 10-person team in Denver is based in Galvanize in the Golden Triangle. The company also has about 10 local employees in its big-data, platform-as-a-service operation, Greenplum.

Barinek says he expects to add project managers, developers and designers in Denver in 2014, and consolidate operations in the city by the end of the year. "All three business units in Denver are all going to be under one roof in 2014," says Barinek.

Owned by General ElectricVMware and EMC Corporation, Pivotal also has 25 employees in Boulder and about 1,300 employees in all. Pivotal Labs, the Agile development services unit of Pivotal, is known for its expertise in Java, Ruby on Rails and pair programming and a focus on behavior- and test-driven development.

Pivotal Tracker has about 500,000 users worldwide, Barinek says, and Pivotal Labs' Denver-based clients include Portico, GoSpotCheck and Plink.

You will usually find a full house working at the Galvanize offices, he adds. "We encourage clients to come work with us," says Barinek. "You're going to write some software -- no distractions."
