Sioux Falls is a growing city with a booming economy, thriving art scene, and a downtown district that make visitors feel like they’re in a much bigger place than they really are—without the crime or the traffic. Yes, there really are falls, and they’re beautiful. Sioux Falls is a regional center, with a metropolitan population of nearly 250,000, yet it manages to feel “small-town” in a good way. 

People in Sioux Falls are deeply involved in and dedicated to Sioux Falls' sense of hospitality and enjoy living in a place with clean air and water, low unemployment and great schools. The city is located at the junction of interstates 90 and 29, and within a day's drive of most major Midwestern cities. There’s always something to do, from First Fridays downtown and Hot Harley Nights to Germanfest and the Sioux Falls Marathon. And with more than 70 parks and an extensive network of bike trails and greenways lining the river that winds through the city, there’s no excuse to stay inside no matter the season.

The Sioux Falls office is the center of excellence for the Zuercher group, which encompasses development, implementation, support, and more for TriTech’s small to medium product lines. The office is full of talented people who are truly committed to making the best public safety software out there. Employees enjoy perks like catered lunch and private offices and dress casually, but take their work with anything but a casual approach. Employees are passionate about building high tech software that constantly evolves to meet users’ needs and backing it up with a fanatical level of customer support. If you want to do important work at a place where you’ll love to work, then you’ll love joining the Sioux Falls Zuercher team.
