Technology is changing Montana’s economy and creating new opportunities for good-paying jobs across the state. The first biannual Montana High tech Jobs Summit hosted by US Senator Steve Daines served as a unique opportunity to bring together leaders in the hub of Montana’s growing technology sector and discuss ways to create more good-paying Montana tech jobs.
The opening panel discussion, “Big Sky Innovation: How Technology Removes Geography as a Constraint,” allowed six technology leaders in the state to field questions from Greg Gianforte, founder of RightNow Technologies.
“We are certainly Montana’s biggest fan,” said Andrew Hull. “With 75% of our workforce a product of the Montana University system and employees who are natives from nine cities across Montana, Elixiter is competing globally while sourcing and building our talent locally. I could not be more excited to create jobs that pay twice the state average and provide careers for our young and talented graduates.”
