Technology is ubiquitous. Working in tech no longer means working for a technology company. Almost all successful organizations now have technology-specific teams that grow, optimize, or underpin their businesses.

Working in technology is a great opportunity for students with a broad range of interests and talents. Many students enter the technology industry via software engineering following a computer science degree. However, all students with strong analytical skills and an interest in the industry should explore the opportunities available to them. Colby students have gone on to work in a variety of capacities at companies including Google, Microsoft, IBM, Meta, Amazon, Square, Tesla, Wayfair, Strava, Blue Origin, and many more.

Contrary to passé pop culture, technologists work in highly collaborative and communication-focused environments. Working in software does not mean being confined to a keyboard and monitor. In fact, many technology companies are often lauded for having best-in-class company culture and employee experience. Business decisions are increasingly driven by tech teams, and developers have more impact now than ever.
