Carlsbad, CA, known as the unofficial golf capital of the world, has something to offer for everyone. Home to beautiful beaches, LegoLand, and year-round sunny weather, the coastal city is much more than an ideal vacation destination. It’s a place to live life in action, and more and more companies are starting to recognize it.
GoPro is one of the many incoming residents as it has relocated its software and sports marketing divisions to Carlsbad. Due to ample action sports and a high volume of software talent such as Call of Duty‘s High Moon Studios and interactive tech leader, InterKnowlogy, Carlsbad is an ideal location.
InterKnowlogy founder, Tim Huckabee, says he wouldn’t want to be anywhere but Carlsbad due to its high quality of life. This quality of life is reflected into other businesses located in Carlsbad such as telecommunications company, Viasat, which has an indoor slide.
Employees at Ionis Pharmaceuticals have access to an on-sight basketball court and yoga, travel and adventure company, prAna, has a climbing wall and meditation garden. Dozens of other companies such as Chuao Chocolatier, Nordson, Processing Point, and ThermoFisher Scientific find that it isn’t tough to spread joy when you live and work in Carlsbad.
