A video tour of the AbeBooks office


Ever wondered what the AbeBooks HQ looks like? Probably not, but here’s a video tour of our office in Victoria, British Columbia, on Vancouver Island, in Canada for anyone who is interested. As I sit here writing this blog post, I can see float planes taking off, ships and yachts going past, and the Olympic Mountains in Washington State. (There’s also a big supermarket but I’m not going to talk about that.) It’s a lovely place to work. However this video isn’t just views – you even get a glimpse inside the ‘bunker’ – a temperature-controlled, earthquake-proof room that contains an awful lot of servers. You will see where we work and play.

AbeBooks was founded in 1996 and we’ve had various offices over the years. We moved into this one, on the top floor of a glass-sided building, in 2008. Anyone interested in working for AbeBooks should visit our careers section.
