Skype Expanding Operations in Silicon Valley

Skype announced that it is expanding its operations in the Silicon Valley.   They’ve signed a lease with Stanford University for a 90,000 square foot office space in the Stanford Research Park in Palo Alto, CA.  “Silicon Valley will add to Skype’s excellent engineering team in Estonia, Prague and Stockholm, and will also become the home of regional marketing, business development, and the Skype for Business team” says Skype CEO Josh Silverman. 

Silverman adds “making this move is an exciting step for us. Skype’s Silicon Valley offices are currently in San Jose and Brisbane, where approximately 80 employees work today. The plans are to relocate our Silicon Valley teams to the new Palo Alto space as early as October 2010. And, we hope to attract some of the best and brightest talent in the Valley, especially engineers who are skilled at building ultra-scalable infrastructure.”
