It’s been a little over a year since Twitter opened up shop in Seattle, and now the social networking giant is growing its footprint in Puget Sound with a new permanent office space.
The company’s Seattle team will be moving from its temporary old digs near Seattle’s historic Pike Place Market to a 16,000 square-foot space at the Century Square building in downtown Seattle. A Twitter spokesperson confirmed the news, which was first reported by the Puget Sound Business Journal.
Twitter, which has more than 2,000 employees worldwide, wouldn’t say how many employees now work in Seattle, but it’s clear that the number is certainly growing. There is, however, only one job posting in Seattle at the moment.
The company has actually had employees in the Seattle area for some time, going back to its April 2010 acquisition of the upstart Cloudhopper. Twitter is part of a wave of prominent tech companies that have established engineering outposts in the Seattle region — including Facebook, Google, Zynga and many others — ramping up the competition for top technical talent in the region.
