Located 90 miles northwest of Los Angeles, the community of Santa Barbara is an ideal place to live and work. The Santa Barbara region is known as the American Riviera—and for good reason. Santa Barbara boasts a beautiful year-round Mediterranean climate, endless outdoor opportunities and a rich cultural scene, all in the middle of a city that retains its small-town feel.

Nestled between the Santa Ynez Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, our region offers endless opportunities to enjoy the natural beauty and explore. Maintaining a healthy work/life balance is important to us, so our employees experience all that the Santa Barbara region has to offer.

The city’s rich history is preserved in an abundance of cultural offerings and events. Our residents enjoy local restaurants, fun cafes and boutiques, museums, arts and cultural events and festivities, and miles of hiking paths and picturesque open spaces. If you appreciate healthy and delicious food, the Santa Barbara area is known for its abundance of fresh, locally-grown produce and sustainable farming methods.
