Several years ago we outgrew our space in Seattle and we made a conscious choice to invest in downtown Seattle. We now employ more than 45,000 people in Seattle who come from all around the world.

Our employees tell us that they love being in the heart of the city. In fact, about 15% live in the same zip code as their office and about 20% walk to work. This is one of the many advantages of having an urban campus.
