Compass, a New York City-based proptech that operates a seamless, modern property platform for buyers and sellers, is launching a tech campus on the West Coast of the US. Compass' goal is to double its tech staff to fill up the new center. The company wants to build "real estate's first-ever end-to-end platform," according to a Facebook post by Compass.
The New York City-headquartered brokerage, which has long emphasized the technology aspect of its business, has gotten more serious about further developing its in-house technology, most recently bringing in Joseph Sirosh, a former Microsoft executive as its chief technology officer. Sirosh, who is based in Seattle, will oversee the new office.
“Seattle is home to some of the best visionary technology leaders and engineers in the world,” Sirosh, said in a release. “We are hiring hundreds of engineers, program managers, product managers, and AI talent next year at Compass to pursue the incredible opportunity ahead of us. This engineering center in Seattle is a great opportunity to tap into the region’s creative talent and at the same time be close to our agents on the West Coast.”
Compass is initially looking to hire at least 100 engineers to work out of its recently leased space in Industrious Seattle, a co-working space in the heart of the Pacific Northwest city’s downtown area.
