US online retailer Amazon is in the process of opening three new offices in Romania and plans to hire over 500 by this year’s end, it said on Tuesday.
Opening in the second quarter of 2021, the new office in Timisoara will focus on Amazon Devices, including Ring home security devices and services, the company said in a press release..
Later in 2021, one of the two planned new offices in Iasi will open. It will focus on Retail Business Support, whilst supporting selling partners and category teams.
In 2023, Amazon will move into the new Palas Campus in Iasi, where the entire Amazon Iasi workforce will be consolidated.
„We are very happy to be opening our new offices and creating a further 500 new jobs in Timisoara and Iasi. There are many opportunities available as a result of the new offices, in particular for professionals in software and operations, to innovate and advance our products and services supporting our Amazon customers all over the world,“ Amazon Romania general manager Octavian Tanase said.
Amazon and its subsidiary Amazon Web Services already have an office in Bucharest, which is home to an Engineering Center, Technology Development, Speech and Language Solutions for Alexa, as well as Alexa Product Testing.
In 2005, Amazon opened its first office in Romania and has since invested more than 100 million euro ($119 million) in its local operations.
