Zillow’s rapid growth doesn’t show signs of slowing any time soon. Earlier this week GeekWire learned that the online real estate company is eyeing 115,000 square-feet of additional office space in the Russell Investments Center, where it already occupies six floors.
The addition could accommodate approximately 600 new workers and, although Zillow said they have nothing to announce about the new space, the company is aggressively hiring. Zillow currently has 120 open positions in Seattle, many of which are listed on GeekWork, GeekWire’s jobs site.
Devs looking for a new gig should check out Zillow’s Senior Software Development Engineer opening. This position will be part of a brand new team at Zillow, designed to collect and organize the nation’s real estate data to build the company’s next-generation data platform.

The new unit could be a significant step for the company as it grows in size with its pending acquisition of Trulia.
“We are creating a brand new team with the mission of collecting and organizing the nation’s real estate data,” the company writes. “This is a rare opportunity to play a key role in building Zillow’s next-generation data platform and a suite of new data products.”
The engineer will be responsible for creating and implementing software systems to solve large scale data problems, writing performance-minded code, and building prototypes for new features.
