Percolate is a leading content marketing platform, built by marketers for marketers. They build solutions to introduce visibility into the marketing process, improve coordination of work, and effectively build marketing campaigns and content.

With main offices in New York, San Francisco, and Denver, Percolate faces a hyper-competitive scene for finding new front-end and back-end developers, while also needing to backfill vacated positions. Kimberly Peterson, Director of Engineering, recalls some of their hiring frustrations.
