Online retailer Amazon announced on Tuesday a major expansion of its operations as it plans to open three new offices in Romania over the next three years and aims to create more than 500 jobs bringing the number of staff employed in the country to over 3,000, according to seenews.com.
The first office to open in the second quarter of this year will be in Timișoara, which will focus on Amazon devices, including Ring home security devices and services.
The other office will open in Iași and will focus on retail business support.
In 2023 Amazon will move into the new Palas Campus in Iași, where the entire Amazon Iasi workforce will be consolidated.
“There are many opportunities available as a result of the new offices for professionals in software and operations, to innovate and advance our products and services by supporting our Amazon customers all over the world,” says Octavian Tanase, Amazon’s general manager for Romania, according to Emerging Europe.
“We are looking forward to continuing our investments in Romania and are proud of the impact we have in Timișoara, Iași and Bucharest by recruiting the best professionals from around the country and abroad,” Tanase added.
Amazon and its on-demand cloud computing platform AWS already have an office in Bucharest, which is home to an engineering centre, technology development, speech and language solutions for Alexa, as well as Alexa product testing.
