LinkedIn signs Detroit office lease

Last August we shared that LinkedIn would be opening its first new U.S office in 10 years, in Detroit, Michigan. In October, with 13 employees on board, we moved into a temporary space. Fast forward five months and our local team has grown to nearly 40 employees.

Today we’re excited to share that we have signed a lease on the historic Sanders building, located at 1523 Woodward Ave. With 74,500 square feet of space, the Sanders building gives us room for future growth and the opportunity to become part of the lower Woodward corridor community in the heart of downtown. Renovations are underway and we look forward to moving into the new space within the next year.

Our growing Detroit team is passionate about creating economic opportunity. Since opening our temporary office in October, we’ve committed to making a positive impact in the community and have hosted numerous events on topics including professional branding, non-profit engagement, and LinkedIn workshops. Each of our offices around the globe partners with one local non-profit partner to help close the opportunity gap in their local community. Today we’re thrilled to share that our Detroit team will be working closely with the Midnight Golf Program (MGP) to help local youth get a strong start on their professional journeys.

We look forward to sharing more developments for this new office and as a member of the Woodward corridor community. In the interim, we are hiring. If you're in the Detroit area or know someone who may be looking for a way into a new opportunity, we're looking for motivated candidates interested in transforming themselves, the company they work for and the world. Our team is made up of talented individuals with different perspectives and experiences who come together to rally around a single purpose — creating economic opportunity.
