Good luck beating this commute, Amazon HQ2 hopefuls.
While the major influx of tech workers to Seattle is often a source of blame for the city’s traffic problems, Alex David, a 23-year-old software engineer at Amazon, works hard before work to be part of the solution.
David has tried busing, biking and even walking to work. But in a new feature on the company’s official blog, his latest mode of transportation is kayak. It’s a 4-mile human-powered trip over water from the city’s Ballard neighborhood to Amazon’s South Lake Union campus.
