LINCOLN, Neb., Aug. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Zillow, Inc.

"As our team continues to expand and grow, it has become increasingly more important to have state-of-the-art facilities to assist in our developing business and operations."
"Mortech, and its employees, are an essential part of Zillow, and we're thrilled to open this new office, which will give them the space and infrastructure they need to continue to successfully grow our mortgage business," said Zillow CEO Spencer Rascoff.
The location includes 7,200 square feet of space and will be home to more than 40 employees, with room to grow as Zillow continues to hire. Open positions in the Lincoln office include software engineers, system administrator, customer support representative and data integrity specialist. See all positions at www.zillow.com/jobs/.
