Omnitech opened a Rapid City, SD office in July, 2019 with Elevate Rapid City on the SD School of Mines & Technology campus. We are one company in two locations. With that comes that challenges of keeping the culture, connecting personally and having all feel connected. It was great to spend time with some co-workers I don’t see much, even if we were working on different projects. We have great people there. If you or someone you know wants to work at Omnitech in Rapid City (or Sioux Falls), please let us know and it would be great to work with you!
Growing up and living in Eastern South Dakota, I’ve always enjoyed vacations to the Black Hills growing up and as a parent. I asked last year if I could work from the new office, but you know what happened (COVID 19). I was generously offered the opportunity and since my current client was working remotely, we took the opportunity.
Anna (my wife) and I homeschool our 4 children (the 4th is only 8 months, but he’s learning a lot too!) so we were able to go in early May before school was out. We were glad to miss the tourist season and see the early spring. There are a lot of places to visit and things to learn. We rented a house about 20 miles west of Rapid City from some friends. My Dad and Mom were even able to come for a few days.
We had some days of 80 degrees and sunny, others of partly cloudy to cloudy and it even snowed. We didn’t let the weather changes stop us from getting in some good hikes and exploration. One day, we finished a hike, got in the van and it snowed a few minutes later :-).
We had a great time and are thankful to Omnitech, my co-workers, our friends and the flexibility we have.
