Does anyone know which area, other than Denver city itself, has the highest concentration of IT jobs?

Thank you.

Right now I think Denver is the main city for IT jobs. That is why I keep pushing for Pueblo Springs Tech park as it will give Colorado an alternative to the Denver MSA for quality IT jobs.

Denver and Boulder are the main sites. There's an area in south Denver metro called the Denver Tech Center, search on DTC.

Colorado Springs (not Boulder.)

Co Springs has lots of IT due to the large military and Govt. presence.

Boulder is a distant third, mostly from NCAR, the University, Sybase and NIST.

I work in IT and deal with IT on the Front Range on a weekly basis.

When people say Boulder I think they mean Interlockin which is more south of Boulder by Longmont/ Broomfield but on the Boulder Turnpike.

Colorado Springs is not the best place for IT actually. I have had friends who could not find a job because of the military influence but went to Denver and got a good job. That is why southern Colorado needs more tech parks so we can be bigger factor in the Colorado economy.

Interlockin was supposed to be the tech area but it was built right when the .com bust happened. There still seems to be a lot of tech jobs in that area though. Like Josseppie said it is in the Broomfield/Westminster area just off the Boulder turnpike.
