Amazon announces expansion of Vancouver office that will create 3000 tech jobs

Amazon announces expansion of Vancouver office that will create 3000 tech jobs”

Amazon's new Tech Hub in Boston's Seaport will create 2,000 tech jobs in the city. In the meantime, Canada launched a fast-track visa program for highly skilled workers past year, which indeed, may very well have something to do with Amazon's decision on Vancouver.

Online retailer Amazon, with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on hand, announced Monday it will add 3,000 jobs in Vancouver, British Columbia, about 150 miles (240 km) north of its Seattle headquarters.

Carson Daly: "I was one of the very lucky people who got to hang with these guys when the entire world wanted to hang with them".

Vancouver mayor Gregor Robertson, meanwhile, called the announcement "great news for our city's booming innovation economy". The workers in Boston primarily handle Alexa, Amazon Web Services and Audible. And on top of Monday's announcement, in November previous year, Amazon announced it would be expanding into another downtown site on Dunsmuir Street, which will open in 2020.

The company says it plans to occupy 430,000 square feet in the Seaport mixed-use development, beginning in 2021. With a focus on artificial intelligence and speech recognition, the new jobs are very much in line with the work the company is already doing in the city to improve customer interactions with Alexa.

The announcement is the latest in a handful of major satellite office expansions Amazon has announced, even as executives are still deciding in which region, among 20 finalists, the company will place its second headquarters campus. Since 2011, Amazon has invested more than $400 million in the city, adding corporate offices and fulfilment centers.

Amazon, which employs more than 1,000 people in Vancouver, in November announced a lease that, from 2020, would give the company space for an additional 2,000 workers.
