YouTube expects to have its biggest hiring year in 2011, with plans to grow its staff by 30%.
The Google-owned video site has dozens of open positions in all areas — although an especially high number in advertising sales and customer support — and all around the world. A great number of the positions are based in YouTube’s headquarters in San Bruno, California, just outside San Francisco.
The company currently has about 650 employees. A 30% increase would mean YouTube could hire close to 200 more staffers this year.
“Because we believe that technology and platforms like YouTube are giving rise to the most diverse set of faces and voices ever seen or heard in human history, us YouTubers really enjoy and feel proud to work here,” YouTube wrote on its blog Thursday.
The company has continued to grow and make acquisitions. Just this week, it was reported that YouTube bought web video production company Next New Networks.
