LinkedIn has been at its global headquarters since 2016, when it agreed to take over a lease at the West Maude Avenue campus from Google in a 1 million-square-foot real estate swap. The agreement also included LinkedIn taking ownership of two Google properties in Mountain View that totaled 460,000 square feet on more than 28 acres and Google taking over LinkedIn’s 370,000-square-foot lease in the North Bayshore area of Mountain View.

Founded in 2003, LinkedIn has grown into a major tech company with more than 18,000 employees and 740 million members of its site. In 2016, Microsoft purchased LinkedIn in a blockbuster deal for $26.2 billion. In April, Microsoft announced that LinkedIn had surpassed $3 billion in advertising revenue in the past 12 months.
