Amazon plans to hire 1,800 new corporate and technology employees at its Canadian offices in 2021, including its Vancouver and Toronto Tech Hubs. Recently Amazon announced it would expand its footprint in Vancouver, leasing 1.1 million sq. ft. of office space at the old Canada Post building.
The new hires mark the latest milestone as the company continues to invest to meet customer demand and pursue a long-term mission to be Earth’s Best Employer.
The 1,800 new hires will support teams across Amazon, including AWS, Alexa, Amazon Advertising, and Retail and Operations Technology. More than 1,500 positions are currently open on amazon.
“Amazon is proud to create good jobs that provide opportunities for employees to develop new skills and grow their careers while innovating on behalf of customers.”Jesse Dougherty, Amazon VP and Vancouver site lead.
Amazon in Canada
For 2021, Amazon did postpone Prime Day for an undetermined period due to Covid restrictions in the country. But that has not stopped Amazon from expanding its operations in Canada.
Amazon employs more than 23,000 full- and part-time employees at the company’s fulfillment centers, corporate offices, development centers, and other facilities in British Columbia, Ontario, Alberta, Manitoba, and Quebec.
Between 2010 and 2019, Amazon invested more than $11 billion (CDN) in Canada, including infrastructure and compensation to employees.
