You might recognize Dave Yeager as the smiling face at the end of the charging station. He’s a software developer for Open Energy Efficiency, a small company that operates in the energy industry with utility clients all over the nation. Dave is the Delaware member of a distributed team that is spread out across Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Toronto, with more to come. When asked about the unique trouble of working remotely he said, “The act of physically going to another location to work is a big deal for me personally since it gives me the mental ability to shut it down when I get home.”
Dave says that he enjoys working in Delaware because it has a reputation for being business-friendly for a reason. Attractive tax rates for employees (no sales tax blows minds) and a growing scene in the downtown/riverfront area means there is lots to recommend for companies looking to establish a large footprint. For Dave, The Mill, like Delaware provides an extremely cost-effective way of working in a professional but relaxed atmosphere. In addition to that, there is a built in community of folks that you can discuss ideas with so you are never in a vacuum. Also, good coffee.
