Pittsburgh – American Eagle is opening what it calls a “progressive technology” office in San Francisco. The almost 10,000-squ.-ft. office, located at 49 Stevenson Street, will offer a space for engineers, designers and digital marketing teams to work on American Eagle’s omni-channel initiatives.
“We are investing heavily in the top talent San Francisco and the Bay Area has to offer and recognize the strategic value of being close to our technology partners in the area,” said Joe Megibow, senior VP and GM of omni-channel e-commerce and head of the San Francisco office. “We try to put the customer at the center of everything we do, and are committed to leveraging best-in-class technology that provides our customers with a superior shopping experience now and in the years to come.”
The office, American Eagle’s first in San Francisco, will start with more than a dozen employees and hire as many as 100 more in the next 12 months.
