About 3 months ago I blogged that Yahoo would be opening a customer service office in suburban Portland, OR.
Oregon Public Radio reportsthat the office new facility opened yesterday and Yahoo co-founder, Jerry Yang, was in attendance.
About 50 people now work in Hillsboro, OR. Yahoo plans to add up to 180 employees within the next year. During a recent job fair, more than 1,500 people applied for work.
Google also has plans to open a technology facility (it might be open already) in The Dalles, OR.
