Snowflake (software-record $33 billion IPO in September 2020) relocates executive office from California to Bozeman, Montana, as company goes distributed


Snowflake, the cloud data analytics vendor that held the biggest U.S. software IPO ever last year, has become the latest tech company to jettison California.
