Spotify Is Likely Planning A Latin America Headquarters In Wynwood, With High Paying Jobs

Miami-Dade commissioners are set to vote on an economic incentive deal which could bring a new HQ office for Spotify.

The actual name of the company is being kept confidential, but the company is a media and entertainment company with over 65 million subscribers. That could mean it is Spotify, the SFBJ speculates.

If approved, the company will commit to build a 10,000 square foot Latin America Headquarters office in Wynwood. At least 16 new jobs paying an average of $143,728 (excluding benefits) will be created.

Currently, the company has 660 square feet of office space in Miami with 27 employees.

Commissioner are scheduled to vote on the deal February 5.

No, I’m not joking. Like the female in Jack-n-the box or whatever fast food joint it was, “this is Hialeah, we speak spanish here.. “

Why referencing something you don’t actually know of; it was a Taco Bell. There is no Jack in the Box in Florida.

Um, just like the comment stated “or whatever fast food joint it was.” Maybe the poster doesn’t live in Miami. No matter, the story got around the USA that that fast food worker told some black people “this is Hialeah, we speak spanish here,” or something to that effect.

If you think I’m lying, then look it up.

27 employees on 660 square feet? That’s very tight…

By my math that’s 250 sqft for the site manager and 4×4′ cages for the desk jockeys.

Never a fan of municipal deals for jobs…make sure you have the best housing stock, good education, good quality of life, and the companies will follow the talent.

Why is the county making an economic incentive for 16 new jobs and the half of the workers probably wouldn’t even live in Miami-Dade county. Go for bigger fish.

Because someone decided that since it’s not their money, why not give away tax payers money. Heck, they’re playing with free money anyway.

Are those 16 jobs going to pay for a Wynwood/Midtown Coastal Link station?

No, it will pay for a Latin America trip for Gimenez so he and his wife can study mass transit.

Miami is such a bush league place…it may try to fool you with pretty buildings but you can’t dress up a donkey. Bending over very much for 16 jobs. ooooh wee! Masa promise they will take care of us now!…nice e.g. of corporations creating jobs when you bend over far enough eh? You will never be NY or any city in CA who takes these guys by the neck and still get 30k Amazon jobs promised and more tech jobs created in CA than they can cope with. But numskulls on here try to make a grand ‘tax avoidance’ case for the state adding jobs. No legs to stand on long term. This place will be under water quicker than you know it in more ways than one. Keep celebrating the short term invasion of NY and foreign money. You guys are pawns and wannabees! ha! Some of you will get what I am saying the rest will be defensive.

As much as people will get mad at you I must agree. I used to be one of those who would get offended by these type of comments until I graduated from college and begin looking for jobs in my field. I work in finance and thankfully I recieved a job offer with a major firm but I had to relocate to Dallas for the opportunity. After spending time in NYC and Texas I begin to understand why Miami is looked at as bush league or “3rd world” when it comes to business. I want to move back home because I love my city but when I search for employment in Miamai there just isn’t any or very little opportunity for high paying jobs. The politics make us a laughing stock and the whole “bilingual preferred” on almost every job description is a major turn off for most people because they know it’s just another form of nepotism. Companies are not going to relocate their headquarters or regional corporate hubs to a place where talented workers feel they have to speak another language or be latin to have a chance. In Dallas I’m actually turning down requests from recruiters on LinkedIN reaching out to me but in Miami my friends can barely find a job making over 55k with a solid education. The shiny new condos are just like putting lipstick on a pig….I love my city but it’s a joke compared to other business hubs around the country.
