Amazon is bringing 600 new tech jobs to Austin
Amazon is continuing to expand into Austin–this time the company is bringing 600 jobs along with it. In March, it announced its expansion in the area around the Domain, a popular shopping and dining destination for Austinites in North Austin.
Originally, the company had plans for a new 145,000 square-foot office building. However, with the booming growth to the Austin area, Amazon will lease an additional 100,000 square feet onto these plans.
“Austin is becoming one of the fastest-growing Tech Hubs across our network – we are finding great talent within the local community and strong pool of innovators willing to think big on behalf of our customers,” said Amazon’s Austin Tech Hub General Manager Terry Leeper. “We’re excited to be adding 600 new tech jobs in the city, with plans to have a team of over 1,400 Amazonians working from the Domain 10 building over time.”
