Mod­er­na looks to the West Coast for lat­est ex­pan­sion

Mod­er­na’s phys­i­cal pres­ence in the US has main­ly been con­fined to the East Coast. But now it will be plant­i­ng its flag on the West Coast.

The mR­NA biotech an­nounced Fri­day that it will be open­ing two new of­fices in South San Fran­cis­co and Seat­tle this year. Mod­er­na chief in­for­ma­tion of­fi­cer Brad Miller told End­points News the Seat­tle of­fice is slat­ed to open April 4.

The Seat­tle lo­ca­tion will be hous­ing Mod­er­na’s ef­forts in tech­nol­o­gy and im­ple­men­ta­tion of AI and cloud tools across its plat­form. Miller said that Seat­tle is home to a rich mar­ket of tech tal­ent, which makes it an at­trac­tive choice for an of­fice. Mod­er­na will look to hire around 100 em­ploy­ees but has room to bring that num­ber up to around 220.
