uberxAnother fast-growing Silicon Valley tech company appears to be opening up an engineering office in Seattle.

This time it’s Uber, the San Francisco-based on-demand transportation startup that just raised another $1.2 billion at a massive $40 billion valuation.

Uber is hiring an “Engineering Manager” in Seattle who will be “instrumental in hiring and mentoring the engineers who work on new product features and experiences for our riders.”

This is the only Uber job listing under the filters “engineering” and “Seattle” on the company’s job board.


Uber has a large majority of its engineers in San Francisco, and a few others scattered among New York City, Lithuania, and Bulgaria. The seven-year-old company, which is operating in 250 cities, recently opened a mobile development shop in Amsterdam.

We’ve reached out to Uber for more details and will update this story when we hear back.

If Uber does indeed open up an engineering outpost in Seattle, it will join countless other tech companies who have already done so. Just last week, we reported on Dropbox’s plans to open its own office in the Emerald City. Google, Facebook, Salesforce, and most recently Apple are just a few of the many companies that are attempting to tap into the software development talent in Seattle.
