Whether it’s a home-delivery pharmacy that focuses on adherence packaging, a design firm that creates engaging e-commerce experiences, or a donation platform that encourages both business and consumer giving, Chicago tech is a force to reckon with.
Below, Built In spoke with professionals from nine companies that should be on our readers’ radars. Why? They’re using the latest tech tools, looking to fill a variety of positions and offering competitive employee perks.
What they do: Founded in 1998, Vibes is a software company that enables marketers and e-commerce professionals to acquire, engage, service and transact with consumers through a variety of mobile channels.
