Zillow Extends Work-From-Home Timeline

Zillow told employees they will be allowed to work from home through the end of the year, extending the flexible working arrangement brought on by the coronavirus pandemic.

“Today we let our team know they have flexibility to work from home (or anywhere) through the end of 2020,” Zillow CEO and co-founder Rich Barton tweeted. “My personal opinions about WFH have been turned upside down over the past 2 months. I expect this will have a lasting influence on the future of work … and home. Stay safe.”

Zillow, launched in 2006 and based in Seattle, employees more than 5,000 people. The web-based company has a database of more than 110 million properties.

“Software and the people who create, deploy, and support it are truly magic,” Barton tweeted. “We’ve been having frequent “Zall Hall” virtual co meetings w/~5k attendees, and they just work. And they are weirdly intimate. Thanks to the Z IT & Comms teams who are making them happen.”
