In June, Amazon announced plans to create more than 150 corporate and tech jobs in Houston, Texas, over the next few years, expanding the company’s Tech Hub in the city. These new roles will support the growing Amazon Web Services (AWS) team and include positions such as Cloud Application Architects, Software Development Engineers for Energy Solutions, Principal Data Scientists, and more.
To accommodate its growth in Houston, Amazon has signed a new 26,000-square-foot lease at 818 Town and Country Boulevard at CITYCENTRE, developed by Houston-based Midway. This latest investment, located near the Amazon’s current, existing CITYCENTRE offices, will provide a host of amenities for employees to enjoy, including access to restaurants, gyms, entertainment, shopping, and more. The new mixed-use office space is expected to open for employees in early 2022.
“Thanks to Houston’s incredible talent pipeline, we’re able to bring 150 new jobs to the city, on top of the more than 300 technology and corporate roles we’ve already created,” said Scott Bends, site lead for Amazon’s Houston Tech Hub. “We’re excited to continue working with the community and local leaders as we invest in Houston, bringing more jobs and new economic opportunity to the area.”
