Amazon announced last Friday (16th) that it will add 600 new workers to its workforce in Spain during this year and a further 200 throughout 2020.
The job opportunities have come about as Amazon is expanding its Software Development Centre in Madrid, with a new team dedicated to technologies for Kindle, its e-book, and books.
Since 2013 Amazon has created the equivalent of 15 jobs a week in Spain, according to its calculations. It will reach 5,400 permanent employees by the end of this year. The development centres in Madrid and Barcelona alone currently employ more than 270 people dedicated to Amazon Business.
The company continues to invest in the country with innovating roles. “Spain is becoming an important centre of global talent”, said the country manager of Amazon in Spain and Italy, Mariangela Marseglia.
Vacancies will cover all types of profiles requiring different levels of training: from engineers and software developers to entry-level, data scientists, experts in machine learning and cloud services.
