Maybe it’s just the season: It’s the end of summer and time to get back to work. It seems like several tech companies in Portland checked their fall forecasts and decided they needed to ramp up new talent hires to meet the coming workload.

eBay has had a Portland presence since 2010, when it purchased Critical Path Software and located its mobile development office here. The online auction site’s Portland team has grown from 50 four years ago to more than 200 employees today, with apps developed in the Portland office responsible for $20 billion worth of commerce—one third of eBay’s global business. Earlier this week, eBay announced plans to double its operations in Portland, with their SW Fifth St. office expanding to 70,000 square feet over five floors, according to the Portland Business Journal. eBay also plans to double its Portland-based workforce to 400 over the next few years—the Rose City office currently has 20 open positions.
