It’s been a busy year at Zillow Group, the Seattle-based real estate media company. Judging by the number of new employees and the number of app updates released to mobile home shoppers, it’s easy to see why so much coffee and sparkling water was consumed.
A new chart (below), timed for Zillow Group Week and the all-company meeting, recaps 2016 and some of the interesting figures associated with the 10-year-old company.
According to a new blog post, Zillow Group has nearly 2,800 employees across five consumer brands (Zillow, Trulia, StreetEasy, HotPads and Naked Apartments) and four business brands (Bridge Interactive, dotloop, Mortech and Retsly), with 34 percent of that current workforce hired in the last year.
Those brands shipped more than 200 app updates and releases. Furthermore, data science teams across all brands processed petabytes of data over the course of the year.
All those people and all that work fueled a thirst for 350,000 cups of coffee and 280,000 cans of LaCroix sparkling water in nine offices across the U.S. occupying more than 420,000 square feet of space.
And, outside of work, Zillow Group employees had 135 babies in 2016 — with a month to go.
