Blackstone Is Opening A Tech Office In Downtown Miami With Jobs That Have An Average $200K Salary

Blackstone recently announced plans to open a technology office in downtown Miami, and workers are being hired immediately at a high salary.

About 215 workers will be employed with an average salary of $200,000. Hiring is underway.

The new 50,000 square foot office will be permanently located in Brickell or Downtown starting in 2022, the company said. For the next 12 to 15 months, the office will be located in a temporary space while the company searches for a permanent location, according to the Herald.

For now, only the firm’s back-office tech workers will be based in Miami. Investment professionals aren’t being moved to Miami yet, according to Bloomberg.

Miami edged out other competing cities for a variety of reasons, according to Blackstone.

The company’s chief technology officer told the Herald that Miami has a great college ecosystem, coding boot camps, growing tech firms, and world class amenities that will make it easy to attract talent.

Thank God there is a company coming downtown. It’s a miracle Doral didn’t get them soon enough.

You’re right. How did it escape Doral’s black hole? Jeez, even most cruise companies have left views of the bay for views of the Palmetto. Beats me.

Let’s hope the homeless population also gets sucked into that vortex.

Try convincing young, single, tech oriented New Yorkers to move to Doral.

I personally know a few. They call it the Jersey of the area.
You’ll be surprised

At this point, you don’t need too much convincing for somebody locked down in their closet rented at five grand a month, and stepping outside you risk being stabbed by a homeless guy with an AIDS-infested needle.

That would be the least of the worries. You could be shot right in the middle of Times Sq

Or be shot in the the middle of Fifth Avenue by Trump.

Let me guess, you believe the media’s narrative of the “very fine people” comment like NBC’s altered George Zimmerman call.

NYC is dead. At 10pm, I drive around and every avenue is a ghost town including Times Square. It is a sad sight.
