Apple Announces Plans To Double The Size Of Their Miami Offices

Apple is bringing more jobs to Miami.

In a press release last week, the company said they expect to double the size of their Miami office, without elaborating.

The Apple Latin America & Caribbean headquarters is located at 1 Alhambra Plaza in Coral Gables.

LinkedIn Jobs shows several openings for the company in Miami.

I think this article would have been a bit more useful had it mentioned how many employees Apple currently has in Miami.

It was one, now will be two.

That is the first time in a while that I read a business is doubling its workforce in Miami. Hopefully the start of a trend…

from 5 to 10.

Apple, please open an iconic store (ie NY cube??!) at the new Miami WorldCenter. We are moving to the neighborhood as are thousands of others – it will be a perfect location with plenty of foot traffic.

Less than 100 jobs. It’s nothing like the news from last week regarding Austin, where Apple is building a 1 billion dollar campus which will become their second biggest in the US

Jesus

Austin got it because there a lot of people there with college degrees. Not the same story in Miami.

Apple chose Austin because it’s smack in the center of the country and because Texas is a growing state. It does help that manpower is available but that is relevant. People gravitate to where the action is. Miami attracts nightlife, the Arts and a resort lifestyle not corporate America

If Miami doesn’t attract corporate, why are we the second largest concentration of financial firms outside of Manhattan? Jesus is right; it’s our lack of tech talent. We have a lot of alumni from prestigious schools outside of Florida like Cornell. The fact that Amazon looked at Miami in their top 20 out of over 200 applicants speaks to our ability to attract corporate America. We tend to attract large firms that want to house their LatAm headquarters here for proximity. It makes sense for some industries like finance and entertainment to pick Miami for a LatAm HQ, but you have to consider LatAm as a market relating to their demographics and consumer potential. Apple probably doesn’t have as large of a market in LatAm as, let’s say Telemundo or Wells Fargo. Smaller market potential = smaller offices/less staff needed. Lack of demand in certain markets plus lack of available talent dictates which industries we can attract and retain.

Austin is “smack in the center of the country”??? Someone needs to learn how to read a map!!
If you are indicative of Miami’s potential workforce, Apple made the right choice!

If you click on the link in the story to the press release, there is a map of jobs and it shows Miami should have between 100 and 250 Apple jobs by 2022. I don’t know if this includes the stores but we are looking at very modest increase of between 50 and 125 jobs within 4 years.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Hey, I’ll take it!

Looks like Apple is doubling down on suburban corporate campuses while Amazon is going in the opposite direction. I wonder who will come out on top talentwise.

Depends on how many employees they have now. If they’re going from 30 to 60, doesn’t matter much where they are.

30 (+/-) possible jobs make the news in Miami!!!
I hope they aren’t talking about part-time jobs in our local Apple stores.

that office is right in the middle of downtown Coral Gables…I would not call it a suburban corporate campus.

Still, I wish they’ll move to Hines tower, OBP, etc. downtown when completed, with an even bigger workforce.

Amazon is hiring worker drones in NYC and DC, top-shelf in Nashville.
