Amazon today announced plans to create more than 550 corporate and tech jobs in Tempe over the next few years, further expanding the company’s Phoenix Tech Hub.
These new roles will support Amazon’s growing teams in Consumer Retail, Amazon Web Services, and Operations, and include positions such as software development engineers, senior solution architects, project managers, and business analysts.
“Not only do Phoenix and Tempe have an incredible existing talent pipeline, but this is a place where people want to move to as well,” said Doug Welzel, site lead for Amazon’s Phoenix Tech Hub. “We’ve experienced amazing growth over the last few years, creating jobs and economic opportunity for the wider community. We’ve already created more than 5,000 corporate and tech jobs in the Phoenix area and we are excited to continue investing here.”
“It’s investments from companies like Amazon that will continue to help Tempe attract more businesses and tech talent to our city,” said Corey Woods, Mayor of Tempe. “These types of investments not only create good jobs, but they help to power the economic engine of our community and provide more opportunities for our residents and citizens.”
To accommodate its growth in Phoenix, Amazon has signed on to a 63,000-square-foot expansion at its existing offices at 100 S. Mill Avenue in Tempe, developed by Cousins Properties and Hines. The additional new office space is expected to open for employees in late 2022.
