Amazon is expanding the company’s workforce in Las Vegas with plans to create 125 additional corporate jobs in the city.
To accommodate this growth, the company recently opened a new 30,000 square foot office in Town Square in downtown Las Vegas. This expansion will allow Amazon to more than double its corporate workforce in the area, with teams based in the new Las Vegas office supporting the company’s human resources organization.
“We are excited to create more jobs in Las Vegas and continue to invest in the city and its people,” said Tami Dennis, site lead of Amazon’s Las Vegas office. “We’ve opened the doors to our new office and we’re looking forward to meeting more of the city’s terrific talent as we look to support the diverse needs of our workforce.”
Amazon’s Las Vegas office currently has more than 100 employees specializing in managing leave of absence and accommodation services for the company’s employees across the U.S. The teams working in Las Vegas are human resources specialists who act as the first point of contact for employees requesting a job accommodation, including American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters for Amazon employees and candidates applying for jobs at the company.
To mark the company’s latest investment in Nevada, Amazon is donating $100,000 to two food bank partners to aid in the fight against childhood hunger. The donation supports the Three Square Food Bank in Las Vegas and the Food Bank of Northern Nevada in Reno.
