LONGMONT, Colo. (AP) - Longmont-based DigitalGlobe is cutting 155 jobs as part of a shift in strategy.

The job cuts include 64 people in Colorado.

According to the Denver Post (https://tinyurl.com/qbxfmft), DigitalGlobe spokeswoman Nancy Coleman says the layoffs are needed to maintain a competitive advantage.

The 100 affected company employees and 55 contractors were notified Feb. 26, the same day that the company released better-than-expected fourth-quarter 2014 and year-end financial results.

DigitalGlobe is one of the world’s leading providers of high-resolution Earth-satellite imagery.
