“We Hire!”Amazon Plans to Hire More People in Denver

Amazon plans to hire 100 people to staff new corporate and tech posts the company is creating in Denver, the e-commerce giant announced Tuesday morning. According to the news release, the new positions to be available will cover a wide range of Amazon’s business – including its retail, devices and Amazon Web Services arms. Despite the COVID 19 pandemic, Amazon has been silently but strongly growing its size and capacity.


“These 100 new jobs will not only help to grow Amazon’s Denver Tech Hub, but also will support the burgeoning pool of talented tech workers here in Denver,” Dave Wood, the site lead for Amazon’s Denver tech hub operation, said in the news release. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with local leaders, investing in the local community and creating jobs and opportunities that will support the Denver economy and talent pool.”


Tech and corporate jobs come in addition to the thousands of workers in its warehouse and distribution buildings scattered along the Front Range. As of today, there are 700 workers in the Denver tech hub, a company spokeswoman said, and 10,500 Amazon employees statewide. The growth in Denver is part of a 3,500-worker expansion across the company’s tech hub cities.


Hence, teams in Denver are already working on projects that include upgrading shopping through Amazon-branded devices and building out software used by health care customers. According to Tuesday’s announcement, Amazon is actually looking for around 230 office workers in Denver right now. In addition to the 100 new posts, there are more than 130 open tech jobs in its Denver hub.


A recent report from real estate services firm CBRE ranked Denver as the seventh-best city for tech talent in North America. A big reason for that is the city’s concentration of tech workers. With more than 113,000, CBRE found that 6.7% of the city workforce is in the tech sector. The national average is just 3.7%.
