A total of 55,000 new corporate and technical positions are being sought by Amazon in order to support the company’s continued global expansion. Despite the widespread negative publicity surrounding Amazon’s workplace, the firm continues to employ a sizable number of people in the United States.
Amazon to Create 55,000 New Positions
According to a statement released by firm CEO Andy Jassy, 40,000 of those positions will be situated in the United States. According to reports, the remaining 15,000 positions will be based in Germany, India, and maybe Japan.
Jassy pointed out that Amazon continues to develop at a rapid pace and to innovate relentlessly across a wide range of industries. It was originally reported by Reuters that the recruiting plans would be for positions in the fields of research science, engineering, and robotics, with the overall hiring frenzy expected to be in the millions of dollars.

Amazon’s corporate and technology workforce, which currently numbers 275,000 people, would apparently be included in the overall growth. According to the analysis, this would result in a 20 percent growth in those fields. Amazon has apologised to Poncan for the unpleasant news that was brought about by a controversial situation involving Amazon employees peeing in bottles.
Andy Jassy, CEO of Amazon, provided an update on the business’s employee headcount at its own fulfilment centres as well as its delivery network, noting that the company has hired approximately 50,000 workers in the United States to date. This came after the firm said in March 2020 that it will hire 100,000 new full-time and part-time positions in the company’s fulfilment facilities as well as its delivery network in order to help the company cope with the entire COVID-19 panic buying.
Amazon’s Technology Centers
This newest recruiting spree, according to a report by ZDNet, follows the company’s $1.4 billion investment in 2020 into 905,000 square feet (84,077 square metres) of new office space in the United States for its “tech hubs.”
According to the company’s prior assertions, the tech hubs will be used by both Amazon’s technology team and business staff to collaborate. According to the Amazon news release, the company has been able to hire more than 450,000 workers in the United States since the outbreak of the flu began.
Amazon is ranked first on LinkedIn, according to the company.
The fact that the corporation is now the largest job creator in the United States was also brought up in conversation. It was also recently named by LinkedIn as the number one firm where people in the United States truly desire to work and advance in their professions. According to a specific source, Amazon used algorithms to fire contractual flex delivery employees who violate their terms of employment.
During Career Day 2020, Amazon received the biggest amount of job applications in a single week in the firm’s entire history, according to the company. According to reports, the event is open to anybody, regardless of their level of experience, their professional area, or even their background.
