Apple has confirmed the opening of an engineering office in Seattle and it appears to have at least 30 engineers already working for the company in the area, reports GeekWire.

It also looks as though Apple has acquired Union Bay Networks, with most of its former employees now working for the company in Seattle. Union Bay Networks was a stealthy cloud networking startup that raised $1.85 million from Madrona Venture Group, Greylock, and Divergent Ventures in July 2013.

GeekWire notes that Union Bay co-founder Benn Bollay is now working as a “Manager” for Apple in Seattle and last Friday he published a post on LinkedIn about a job opening for a Systems Software Engineer. “Ever wanted to work at Apple, but didn’t want to live in Cupertino?” Bollay wrote. He also sent an email to a Seattle tech community forum on Monday saying, “Apple is opening up a new office here in Seattle, and they have a couple openings that might be interesting to everyone.”

When the website went to Union Bay's offices this morning, the only person there was CEO Tom Hull, who declined to comment when asked if Apple had acquire the company. However, Apple seemingly confirmed the acquisition with its usual statement that it “buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans.”

Apple currently has two open engineering job postings open in Seattle. You can check those out here.
