The environment at Chronos is highly collaborative, and we’re fortunate to have a team of energetic, creative individuals who genuinely enjoy working together. Everybody at Chronos is multi-talented (it's just a fact!), and we strive to take full advantage of that luxury. There are no walls between our clients and our team—direct engagement is the rule not the exception. Nobody at Chronos is just a cog in the machine, and it is the breadth of experience and remarkable skills of our staff that lets us shine.
Colorado is an amazing state to call home, and the Denver area is teeming with opportunities both outdoors and in. Bike tours, lunch rides, ski days, afternoon escapes to catch (and make) live music, fishing holidays, mountain road rallies — all are embraced and encouraged at Chronos Interactive. We're proud of our ability to put our clients first, yet never neglect our own quality of life. It's a delicate balance, but for more than a decade we have made it a foundational part of our business.
We like to bike
To say we're cycling enthusiasts is a bit of an understatement. At least half of our team bikes to work on a frequent basis (our art director even puts her dog in a bike basket). In addition, several of us are regular participants in Ride the Rockies, Pedal the Plains and The Triple Bypass Bicycle Ride—sporting our Chronos Interactive jerseys, naturally. According to The League of American Bicyclists, Colorado is the country's 7th most bike-friendly state, and Forbes rates Denver as the 4th most bike-friendly city. Colorado is widely noted for our spectacular mountains, but the assumption that all pedaling here is up-and-down misses the mark. Of Denver's more than 500 miles of bike lanes and routes, the vast majority are flat or feature mild inclines. If you're looking for a lung-busting road ride, two of our favorites are Lookout Mountain and High Grade, both of which can be accessed by bike in less than an hour from the west side of town. Denver's a great bike town!
We're a little bit rock 'n roll
Between Red Rocks and smaller indie venues, Denver offers a multitude of opportunities for live music, and we take full advantage. Not a weekend goes by where at least one of us hasn't been to a concert—or played in one. Our tastes are eclectic, and that's perfect for Denver, because there is no definitive "Denver sound." The bands here don't all sound the same, and there is a thriving local music scene. When it comes to big acts, Denver is on the map for almost every major touring band thanks to our geographic location and venues.
Whether it's a long walk with the dogs, or a multi-day trek through the backcountry, there are few better ways to enjoy Colorado's magnificence than on foot. Downtown Denver is compact and her historic districts and rejuvenated Lodo are accessible and loaded with sights and sounds, cafes, restaurants, bars and more. Our offices are a short walk south of the vibrant Sante Fe Arts District, and on the west side of The Baker District and Broadway's restaurants and nightclubs. Living in Denver, you're never more than a short drive from the well-maintained Front Range hiking trails, and the backcountry opens up with seemingly endless and magnificent mountain trails less than an hour's drive west. Our team has seen at least two wedding proposals (and acceptances!) on mountain hiking trails, and as Nietsche said, “All truly great thoughts are conceived while walking.” And so, we walk on!
We hoist a pint, now and then.
According to the Colorado Brewers Guild, our state boasts 300+ breweries and brewpubs, and the number grows every week. The net effect of this booming growth is almost endless variety for those with a taste for the world's third most popular drink (we also drink water and tea, so we've got the top three covered). Whether it's a nice seasonal ale over a team lunch or a post-workday brew at the office or a nearby pub, we (responsibly) enjoy the benefits of life in this beer-crazed state. Some of our Colorado favorites include Lone Tree Brewery, where Brian has a Cheers-like residence, and pretty much anything from Longmont's venerable Oskar Blues Brewery. Of course, our love for music and hiking/walking makes for a natural pairing to our affair with the world's oldest prepared beverage. As Thomas Jefferson noted, "Beer, if drunk in moderation, softens the temper, cheers the spirit and promotes health."
