Colorado Edges Out Arizona and Washington to Land Edge R&D
New Business Intelligence Company coming to Douglas County
DENVER - The Polis administration announced today that Edge R&D, a business intelligence, data management and technology solutions company, has selected Colorado to focus its expansion and growth for future talent/hires.
“Colorado is on a mission to grow our thriving technology sector with high-paying jobs by attracting new businesses and out-competing other states. Douglas County is a terrific place to do business with a great quality of life,” said Governor Jared Polis. “Edge R&D represents growth of this advanced industry and we are excited for their growth in Douglas County.”
Edge R&D, established in 2016, is a privately-owned Technology consulting partner that offers project services, managed services and staff augmentation. Edge R&D, which has resources located primarily in Arizona and Washington, has experienced rapid growth over the past five years providing technology support and solutions along with digital transformation strategies to their clients. With its anticipated growth projections, Edge R&D plans to create an additional 69 jobs over the next eight years targeting Colorado as its primary source for talent.
Although still looking for its final location, Edge R&D plans to locate in Castle Rock, Castle Pines or Lone Tree. The average annual wage for these new 69 positions is expected to be more than 200 percent of the average annual wage in Douglas County.
“Edge R&D is excited about the opportunity to grow in the Colorado market. We are looking forward to becoming part of Colorado’s technology community and hope to bring positive growth to its economy,” said CEO Ryan Williams.
