Amazon Vows To Create 3000 High-Tech Jobs In Vancouver

Amazon Vows To Create 3000 High-Tech Jobs In Vancouver

Amazon announced today that they are going to open a new 38,000 square metre office tower at the old post office and it will go fully online by 2022.

"We choose to build and grow in Canada because we recognize the diverse and exceptionally talented work force here", Jesse Dougherty, Amazon's general manager of web services, told an announcement event on the new development also attended by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The new Amazon office is scheduled to open in 2021.

"Amazon is excited to create 2,000 more jobs in greater Boston", said Rohit Prasad, Amazon vice president and head scientist of Amazon Alexa, in a press release.

A day after Amazon announced it will add thousands of jobs in Vancouver, B.C.

The company is opening a 430,000-square-foot office in WS Development's Seaport Square project - a 7.6 million-square-foot development along the waterfront. "Amazon's future here in Vancouver is very bright".




As a result, the move will bring as many as 3,000 total new jobs in related tech fields to the region. 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.

Boston is one of 20 cities on the finalist list for Amazon's second headquarters.

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. The company expects to grow to 5,000 corporate employees in Vancouver in the coming years across all of its locations in the city.

City and state officials have shared few details of their HQ2 talks with Amazon, but have signaled little willingness to pony up the kind of massive subsidy package being offered by other contenders such as Maryland and New Jersey.

Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson said in an interview on Monday that Amazon did not receive any concessions from municipal governments to encourage the development.
