WHY VERMILLION?

America has an IT problem and it’s time Americans stepped up to fix it. For the past couple of decades, the country has been shipping its IT work offshore. Initially, this was done due to cost, but corporate America evolved and so did the demands of IT services. Due to our efforts and these changing demands there’s a growing realization that the talent we need to support the increasing amount and complexity of technologies used in commerce is right here in the U.S.A. – communities like Vermillion, South Dakota. At Eagle Creek, we operate a domestic sourcing model – we call it “U.S. Onshoring”. We have Technology Centers in North & South Dakota and headquarters in Minnesota. From here, we provide technical and consulting services that help our customers get the best use out of their software investments.

Our U.S. Onshore model competes internationally and only works with the collaborative relationships we have with the State of South Dakota, The University of South Dakota, the South Dakota Board of Regents, and the City of Vermillion. The willingness, innovation, talent, and “can do” spirit of a community like Vermillion enables us to continue to build this sustainable, scalable, and stable IT Services company. We offer a competitive, challenging, and exciting career in order to help orchestrate the resurgence of the IT Services industry in this country.

  • Vermillion, South Dakota lies atop a bluff of the last natural stretch of the beautiful and pristine Missouri River. Founded in 1859, Vermillion is a community known throughout the region for its friendliness, its historical significance, its beautiful setting, its area attractions, and its educational resources.

  • Much history has been written about Vermillion. It was a town located below bluffs and on the riverbanks of the Missouri River.

    On August 24, 1804, Lewis and Clark camped at the mouth of the Vermillion River and from there made their trek to Spirit Mound. Before the settlers and homesteaders came in 1860, the junction of the Missouri River and Vermilion River had for generations been the camping ground of one of the bands of the Yankton Sioux Indians. Here they cultivated their little fields of corn. In the summer, their tepees stood on top of the bluff to get the summer breezes and when winter came they moved to the bottom of the hill to get the shelter from the winter’s storms. Along the bluff was the silent resting place of their deceased relatives.

    After Lewis and Clark were here in 1804, numerous trappers and fur traders went up and down the river, and the Columbia Fur Co. established a trading post at the mouth of the Vermillion River.
