Amazon to create 1,000 jobs in Ireland
The online retailer is creating a new Dublin campus for its cloud computing arm Amazon Web Services
Amazon announced on Monday that it will create 1,000 jobs in Ireland and open a new Dublin campus, following an increase in demand for cloud services.
The new roles include a range of engineering positions, as well as security and big data specialists, and programme and account managers. Technical management and senior leadership positions in Amazon and Amazon Web Services are also being created.
Amazon is investing in a new 170,000 square foot (15,794 square metre) campus in Dublin’s Charlemont Square that will open in 2022 and be used by Amazon Web Services’ cloud computing employees. The new hires will bring Amazon Ireland’s permanent workforce to 5,000 over the next two years.
“We have seen a surge in demand for cloud services in Ireland and globally, and we are excited to add 1,000 highly skilled roles so we can continue to help our customers to innovate,” Mike Beary, country manager for Amazon Web Services Ireland, said in a statement.
