Seattle giant Amazon plans to create 3,000 new jobs in Vancouver as part of a complex that will be built in a former downtown Canada Post plant, a landmark building in a city that is pushing to be a high-tech hub.
Amazon says it will expand its workforce in B.C.’s largest city to 5,000 in the coming years from its current 1,000. Across Canada, Amazon now has 6,000 full-time jobs in B.C., Ontario, and Quebec. Many of those positions will be in Software QA and Software Testing – great news for Hitek Computer School graduates!
“We choose to build and grow in Canada because we recognize the diverse and exceptionally talented workforce here,” Jesse Dougherty, Amazon’s general manager of web services, told an announcement event on the new development. He noted that Amazon has had considerable success recruiting and hiring Canadians – a mix of experienced coders, university graduates and people who have chosen to live and work in Canada.
