Location: Golden, Colorado
Number of employees: 48
Digs: The office sits above a leafy atrium adjacent to the factory and outlet store.
Culture: Spyderco, which was started in 1978 by Sal and Gail Glesser, remains a family-owned company—and frequent staff-wide outings make employees feel like they’re part of that family. “Our office is packed with fishermen, backpackers, and skiers,” says Nicole Veney, marketing assistant and graphic designer, “all of whom use our knives all the time.”
Sweet Perk: Thirty-five miles of hiking and biking trails out the front door.
