Zillow Planning To Hire 100 In Irvine

Orange County's latest, high tech employer, Zillow, launched a grand opening of its new offices on Michelson Drive this week, saying that it plans to hire up to 100 people in its new office in the location. Zillow, which operates the online real estate site known for its "Zillow Zestimates", had said in April that it would be opening up a new location in the OC, looking to tap into what it says is a "highly talented local job market." The firm is taking advantage of both Orange County's strength in the high tech industry, as well as deep roots in real estate and consumer data. Zillow's initial job forays in the area look to be focused on customer support, human resources and recruiting, inside sales, and program management.
