Guide for relocation to Steamboat Springs, CO

Location-Neutral Business

Companies fitting this mold are as varied as the outdoor activities town offers. From software techs and salespeople to graphic designers and lone eagles for employers like Oracle, the Yampa Valley is rife with employees and entrepreneurs whose business borders extend beyond Steamboat.

“It’s an increasingly important component of the economy,” says local economic analyst Scott Ford. “Location-neutral businesses are significant to our economy and pay on average 20 percent above our current median income.”

One example is LDM Global, a data processing and computer forensics firm headquartered here but with offices in London, New York, Paris, Sydney and Brussels.  “No one should have to work in a dirty city anymore,” says CEO Chris O’Reilly, who moved his job here in 2009 to raise his three daughters. “There’s no reason I can’t have my data center here and still hire intelligent people.”
