Anyone have any idea what their operations staff size looks like?

According to the linked paper, the have 60 people managing the machines around the world, arranged for 24x7x365 coverage.

I'm not sure what kind of work they do, but they make a point of saying they don't need much human intervention. So, that might be all.

I don't know about ops but all of engineering is about 600 or so, IIRC. Everything is automated to an incredible degree though, so I wouldn't be surprised if ops is quite lean.
