- The new offices
Facebook, which announced
May 5 that it was going to open a new office in Seattle, has signed a lease for a new office space on First Avenue and Stewart Street, according to TechFlash
. The building is close to Pike Place Market and Nordstrom's flagship store. The office is expected to open sometime in July. Right now the only job opening for the Seattle office is for a software engineer, although the team could eventually grow to around 30 Facebook developers. Former MSN Manager and serial entrepreneur Hadi Partovi will be joining Facebook in an advisory role. Mayor Mike McGinn has welcomed
the new engineering office, Facebook’s second in the U.S. after its headquarters in Palo Alto.
