Cloud software company Snowflake has become the latest tech firm to leave Silicon Valley, opting instead for offices across the country rather than a single headquarters.

In a filing this week with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the company explained, “We are a Delaware corporation with a globally distributed workforce and no corporate headquarters.”

In reporting first-quarter earnings Wednesday evening, the company’s dateline appeared as “No-Headquarters/BOZEMAN, Mont.”

“For purposes of this report, we have designated our office in Bozeman, Montana as our principal executive office, as that is where our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer are based,” the company said in a filing. Snowflake, formerly headquartered in San Mateo, California, still has a large office in Silicon Valley.
