An exciting opportunity to live and work in picturesque Archuleta County, Colorado! Enjoy all that Archuleta County has to offer including skiing/snowboarding, biking, hiking, camping, hot springs, xc-skiing, fishing, and an amazing community.


Archuleta County employees continually strive for excellence and take pride in serving our community in Southern Colorado. Pagosa Springs is the county seat for Archuleta County and is located in the Colorado Sunbelt, just 35 miles north of the New Mexico border and along the western slope of the Continental Divide. The combination of a high desert plateau and the Rocky Mountains to the north and east of town creates an unusually mild mountain climate. As a portal to the nearly 3 million acres of the San Juan National Forest and Weminuche Wilderness Area, Archuleta County is a doorway to the four seasons of outdoor adventure which landed us in Outdoors Magazine's top 10 best Towns in American (2015) and Men's Journal's "20 Best Mountain Towns in America (2017).
