Uber could soon open a major office in Dallas and turn the city into its largest corporate hub outside of its San Francisco headquarters, according to a briefing for Dallas County leaders obtained by The Dallas Morning News.
The transportation giant plans to create 3,000 jobs and pay employees an average salary of at least $100,000 at the new office, according to the briefing and a tax abatement request for the next Dallas County Commissioners Court meeting. The briefing says Uber has evaluated sites across the country and plans to move into two office buildings at The Epic, a development at the edge of Deep Ellum and downtown.
Uber would not confirm whether it has decided on Dallas.
“Uber is evaluating adding a significant number of jobs in Dallas and investing directly in the community,” company spokesman Travis Considine said in a statement. “Our team is currently discussing the opportunity with state and local leaders, and we hope to make a decision by the fall.”
Uber’s office would include engineers, finance executives, salespeople and other roles across its business.
