No primary category set

Amazon have announced an expansion of their Austin Tech Hub and plans to 800 new tech jobs in fields including software and hardware engineering, research science, and cloud computing. Together with its customer fulfilment facilities, Amazon have created more than 22,000 full-time jobs in Texas and since 2011 have invested over $7bn (£5bn) in the state, including infrastructure and compensation to their employees.

Amazon’s Austin Tech Hub is one of the company’s 17 North American Tech Hubs – a network of development centres in addition to Amazon’s Seattle and Northern Virginia headquarters. Together, these Hubs have more than 20,000 employees, building new products and services for Amazon customers around the world. Austin-based teams primarily focus on Amazon Web Services (AWS), Amazon Business, Amazon devices, video game design and advertising.

To accommodate the additional job creation in Austin, Amazon will expand into a new 145,000 square foot office in The Domain, opening in 2020. Amazon’s new office will be located in Domain 10 owned by TIER REIT, which is co-developing the project with Endeavor Real Estate Group.

In the last four years, we have created more than 1,000 jobs in Austin. With a strong pool of technical talent in Austin and a dynamic quality of life, we are excited to continue to expand and create more opportunity in this vibrant city.”
– Terry Leeper, general manager Austin Tech Hub, Amazon
