Amazon Expanding Chicago Tech Hub

Amazon is expanding its Chicago Tech Hub and plans to create 400 new tech jobs in fields including cloud computing, advertising and business development.

To accommodate this job creation, Amazon will expand its office in downtown Chicago by more than 70,000 square feet, allowing the company to double its tech workforce in the city. Job seekers interested in learning more about Amazon’s new positions in Chicago and across Illinois can attend the Amazon Career Day event on September 17.

“We’re excited to create more opportunity in Chicago, a city with terrific talent and a culture of innovation,” said Geoff Nyheim, director central U.S., AWS sales. “We look forward to doubling our teams in the Windy City, contributing to its diverse economy, and hiring local talent to fill exciting roles across Amazon.”
