5 Geeky Companies You Should Consider Working For

by JP Thiesing

At one point or another, all of us geeks have to admit it to ourselves, we have wanted to work at a tech savvy company. Whether it be Microsoft, or Sony, if you’re a geek, you’ve definitely put this on your to-do list at one point or another. For those of you that still hold onto this dream, why not let us here at Geek Insider help you out with a little guidance? Here’s 5 geeky companies that you should consider working for.

1. Thinkgeek.com

Whether it be a zombie themed tomahawk, or a spy remote for any TV, this is your one stop shop for all things geek. So why not work here? I mean it has geek in the name, which should be a good sign for any unemployed geek out there. There’s also tons and tons of good stuff there, too. I’m sure that they get a good discount for working there. That means that you can load your room up with every colored light saber in record time!

2. Gamestop

Ahh, Gamestop, the one place where I can buy 70 dollars worth of junk, then sell it for $1.83. You may be thinking at that point, “Why would I want to work at a place that essentially scams people out of their hard earned dough?” Well the answer is easy, if you can’t beat them, join them. Why wouldn’t a geek want to work in a place where you can’t look anywhere without seeing a game? Also if you work there, you get to rent used games for free and take them home to play at your leisure, which means that you don’t have to pay anything out of pocket to play that new single player only game everyone has been raging over. Furthermore, working with people who enjoy the same things as you doesn’t seem so bad, working along fellow geeks who love the same thing as you welcomes tons and tons of conversation. You can instantly make friends with everyone, and you can get into little debates about why Call of Duty sucks compared to Halo.

3. IGN

Who wouldn’t want to work at a company that has everything to do with gaming? They get to review and play games that haven’t come out yet all the time! Not to mention press passes to places like E3, Comic-con, and Pax, where they see all the new releases and see the hands-on demos of games that are coming out months from that time. If you’re a geek, and you haven’t already made it up to the top of the chain (insert witty reference to GeekInsider here) Then you should be thinking about giving IGN a call and submitting your geeky resumes.

4. Cisco

This company is all about networking. If your dream is to work with all things related to the internet and all its ins and outs, then you need to work here. You’ll learn everything there is to know about networking here, from how to set up a network and it’s I.P. addresses, to figuring out how to set up the topology of a network in an office building. For the ever-advancing future, this is a trade that I believe that everyone is going to be well versed in soon. There is so much money to be made in this company that it’s not even funny, and one of the best parts about it is, you don’t even have to go to college to get a job here. Straight out of high school, you can snag a job that makes you somewhere in the neighborhood of 60,000 a year. That can get you like, SO many monster energy drinks and Microsoft points it’s unbelievable.

5. Geek Squad

This company is perfect for all you tech savvy geeks out there. If you always wanted to find a company that will pay you to be a geek, then this is probably one of the best places to work at on this list. It seems like it would just come as second nature for most of us, right? The second best perk of working here, if you don’t know how something works, you’ll be happy to find out since you’re a fellow geek and you probably have it at home. The only downside to this would be that you would be that member of the family that everyone calls when their TV goes out.
