Amazon is expanding its Denver Tech Hub and plans to create 400 new high-tech jobs in fields including software and hardware engineering, cloud computing and advertising.
To accommodate this job creation, Amazon will open a new office in downtown Denver, joining the company’s Boulder office which opened last fall, which allows the company to more than double its tech workforce in the Denver area. Together with its customer fulfillment and retail facilities, the company said it has created more than 3,500 full-time jobs in Colorado.
“We’re excited to continue to grow and invest in the Denver area,” said Dave Wood, site lead for Amazon’s Denver tech hub. “Our new office will offer our teams the convenience of a downtown location with an array of outdoor adventures just up the road.”
Amazon has more than 350 employees in the Denver area building new products and services for the company’s retail and advertising businesses, as well as Amazon Web Services.
The company’s new 98,000 square foot office will be located in Invesco’s 1515 Wynkoop LEED Platinum building in Denver’s Lower Downtown neighborhood. Amazon’s Denver Tech Hub is one of the company’s 17 North American Tech Hubs, a network of development centers in addition to Amazon’s Seattle and Arlington headquarters.
