Facebook Opening a New Data Center in Iowa
Does your current job allow you to play foosball and ping-pong on the job? Does your current employer offer 100% paid employee health, vision and dental insurance? Does your current employer offer 4 months paid maternity leave? How about 21 days PTO, 11 paid holidays and unlimited sick time? I didn't think so.
A job that offers all of that is Facebook and if you move to Altoona, Iowa, you could work there! Altoona is just a few minutes from Des Moines. I have relatives in Altoona. I wonder if they'd like a house guest?
According to a news release from Facebook they plan to break ground this summer and expect to begin serving user traffic in 2014.
