DENVER, CO (STL.News) Governor Jared Polis and the Office of Economic Development and International Trade announced today that Nextworld, the Colorado based enterprise software pioneer, plans to expand its Greenwood Village headquarters. The multifaceted Nextworld project includes a substantial investment in an expanded Greenwood Village campus that will serve as the hub for more than 300 new Colorado jobs.
“I’m thrilled that Nextworld will deepen its roots here in Colorado with an important expansion creating over 300 good jobs as we rapidly recover from this pandemic,” said Governor Jared Polis. “Colorado’s talented workforce and spirit of innovation continue to inspire investment in our economy that will help us build back even stronger.”
Nextworld forecasts the creation of net new Colorado based jobs that span a range of functions across operations, application development, software engineering, product management, and administration. The company’s projected average annual wage of the jobs to be created is $148,960, which is equivalent to 212% of Arapahoe County’s average annual wage.
“Nextworld was founded in Colorado, has grown with Colorado and, with this new commitment, we are poised to play a major role in Colorado’s future,” said Nextworld CEO Kylee McVaney. “This is an exciting chapter for Nextworld and it is especially meaningful that it will be written in the original market that nurtured a bold vision into a dynamic business solution.”
Embracing the global trend of remote work models, Nextworld anticipates that a portion of the planned new jobs will be remote positions and, therefore, eligible for Colorado’s Location Neutral Employment (LONE) incentives if the corresponding work occurs from one of Colorado’s LONE eligible counties over the next five years.
