Amazon reveals plans to hire 2,000 workers for major expansion in Austin
Amazon has plans to expand in Austin, Texas, and since it will be a major project, the e-commerce giant will be creating more than 2,000 jobs for the locals. The company stated that it would mostly be needing people for corporate and tech jobs in the next few years.
As per Austin American-Statesman, the new recruits will be assigned roles that will support teams working in the technology, web service, retail, and business units. Some of the positions mentioned are financial analysts, senior technical program managers, senior data engineers, and user experience designers.
Currently, it was reported that Amazon already has more than 3,000 workers in its tech hub in Austin. This number is the total employees from its three offices in Domain, the high-tech corridor of northwest Austin.
Now, for its plan to expand in the region, the company reportedly rented out 330,000 square feet of space at a new building that is being developed by Cousins Properties. This property is also located at Domain, and it is expected to open in early 2024. This new office will be Amazon’s fourth location in the area and may help boost other businesses nearby, including restaurants, local retail, entertainment, and so on.
“Our continued investment in Austin is a testament to the amazing talent and amenities that this city has to offer,” Amazon Austin Tech Hub site lead, Doug Gray, said in a press release. “With more than 3,000 jobs already created and more than 1,000 corporate and technology roles currently available, we’re looking forward to continue offering exciting career opportunities to local residents.”
The news of new job recruitment at Amazon comes as the unemployment rating in Austin plummeted to a pandemic-era low level in November for five successive months. It was reported that the record 3.2% unemployment rate last month happened as local businesses continue to have difficulties in hiring workers as the local economy starts to pick up again.
Meanwhile, to attract applicants for its job openings, Amazon set up a program called the “Amazon Returnship.” The goal is to help professionals return to work after losing or leaving their jobs, including those who were displaced due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
