Oculus VR has signed a lease for a 51,000 square foot space at the Stadium Innovation Center in Seattle’s Sodo neighborhood according to a report in the Daily Journal of Commerce.
The newly inked Seattle office positions Oculus to continue building out their research and development team already working in Seattle and lead by former Valve engineer and Chief Architect at Oculus VR, Atman Binstock.
Washington continues to grow as a virtual reality and augmented reality hotbed with Oculus accompanying a strong presence from the headquarters of Valve who is working on the HTC Vive and Microsoft with their Hololens.
Seattle reps the second largest concentration of Oculus employees behind the San Francisco Bay area. According to the Oculus career site, open positions run the gamut from gameplay/game designers to optical and research scientists.
Oculus VR is also having a big day tomorrow (June 11) with their pre-E3 press event in San Francisco where Oculus VR is rumored to be releasing more details around their upcoming consumer headset.
