Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) on Tuesday said it plans to expand tech hubs in Austin and Phoenix and will add approximately 2,550 jobs.

The company announced plans to create more than 2,000 corporate and tech jobs in Austin over the next few years. The new roles are expected to support growth in Operations Technology, Amazon Retail, Amazon Business and Amazon Web Services, and will include positions such as senior data engineers, senior technical program managers, user experience designers and financial analysts.

“Our continued investment in Austin is a testament to the amazing talent and amenities that this city has to offer,” said Doug Gray, site lead for Amazon’s Austin Tech Hub. “With more than 3,000 jobs already created and more than 1,000 corporate and technology roles currently available, we’re looking forward to continue offering exciting career opportunities to local residents.”

To accommodate its growth in Austin, Amazon says it has signed on to lease 330,000 square feet of space at a new building. The new office space is expected to open for employees in early 2024.

Amazon currently has more than 3,000 tech and corporate employees working at its Austin Tech Hub.

The company also says it is adding more than 550 corporate and tech jobs in Tempe, Arizona, “over the next few years.” The new roles will support the company’s Consumer Retail, Amazon Web Services and Operations, and will 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.”

Amazon says it has signed on to a 63,000-square-foot expansion at its existing offices at 100 S. Mill Avenue in Tempe. The additional new office space is expected to open for employees in late 2022.

The company currently has more than 5,000 tech and corporate employees working at its Phoenix Tech Hub.
