Micron opens splashy new campus in San Jose, CA

Boise-based Micron Technology opened a large new campus in San Jose, CA last week – giving it room to expand in California.

The company moved from smaller digs in Milipitas to a gleaming three-building campus along the freeway in San Jose.

“This campus is very important for us to recruit and retain employees,” Sanjay Mehrotra, Micron’s chief executive officer told the San Jose Mercury News. “People expect world-class facilities when they join a tech company. This will allow us to attract and keep top talent.”

The company has about 600 employees in the Bay Area, according to the Mercury News – but the new campus could allow it to expand to 1,000 people. The paper noted 6,000 people work for Micron in Boise.

Micron worked to shrink its Boise workforce over the past year, according to reporting from the Idaho Press. The chipmaker tasked some employees with training replacements in Taiwan. Micron also announced it would invest $3 billion in new facilities on the Virginia side of the Washington, DC metro area.

Construction crews working at the Boise campus in recent years expanded the executive suites, added a new skybridge and permitted for a new office building.

It also operates locations in Texas, Utah, Minnesota, Seattle and several other areas in California.

In 2017, Sanjay Mehrotra joined the company as CEO. Mehrotra founded SanDisk and was based in the California area. Mehrotra’s LinkedIn profile lists his location as “San Francisco Bay Area.”
