DETROIT (WJBK) - The business networking site LinkedIn announced it's opening an office space in downtown Detroit.
A statement on the company's blog says the company looked at more than 10 cities for its next location, and ultimately chose Detroit.
"We believe the Motor City presents a unique opportunity for LinkedIn to hire top talent and be a part of an exciting economic turnaround story," Mike Gamson, LinkedIn's senior vice president of Global Solutions says.
LinkedIn is still securing its office, so it wasn't able to announce yet where it'll be located. They say, though, they'll have a temporary set up downtown to get things up and running quickly, and then they'll more to a permanent spot later on.
They hope to have employees in the office in the next few months, and currently have job openings. They're looking for sales professionals at all levels.
"We recognize that often people don’t want to move to find a great job, so with our new Detroit office we’re bringing LinkedIn to a new city where we believe we’ll be able to hire great people," Gamson says.
