Zoom‘s new research and development centers are located in Phoenix, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The company also stated that they will start recruiting software engineering professionals in these regions immediately. New employees will also work from home until the offices are completely built and the coronavirus outbreak has ended.
500 software engineers
Zoom also stated that they are looking for space near Arizona State University and Carnegie Mellon University, both of which have exceptional engineering programs.
According to the announcement, these two new centers will support Zoom’s engineering leadership, which is based at its San Jose, California headquarters. Eric S. Yuan, CEO of Zoom said,
“Both Phoenix and Pittsburgh have incredibly well-educated, skilled, and diverse talent pools that are well-positioned to help support Zoom’s ongoing growth and continued success. We plan to hire up to 500 software engineers between these two cities in the next few years, drawing largely on recent graduates of the many local universities.
We look forward to expanding our team and seeing what we accomplish together as we continue to build our world-leading video communications platform with best-in-class reliability, scalability, privacy, and security.”
