Amazon has enlarged its San Diego Tech Hub and plans to create 300 high tech jobs in software development, machine learning, cloud computing, and digital entertainment. This will allow the company to more than double its tech workforce in the area. Along with its customer fulfillment facilities, Amazon has created more than 39,000 jobs in California.

Since 2011 it has invested over $19 billion in the state, including infrastructure and compensation to its employees.

To accommodate the job creation, Amazon has opened a new 85,000 square foot office in Alexandria Real Estate Equities’ Campus Pointe in the University Town Centre neighborhood of San Diego.

“Amazon is excited to create more tech jobs in San Diego – a city with terrific talent and a culture of innovation,” said Nate Wiger, general manager of Amazon’s new San Diego office. “We look forward to more than doubling our investment in the area, and hiring local talent to fill exciting roles across Amazon. Thank you to all our partners across the city and the state for helping us create these new jobs, and contributing to the already vibrant innovation economy in San Diego.”

“San Diego is a place where ideas take shape and innovation happens. Our entrepreneurial spirit, innovative culture and top-ranking universities make our city the perfect location for Amazon’s newest tech hub,” said mayor Faulconer. “This new facility is an investment in San Diego’s growing innovation economy, our talented workforce and the relationship we have with one of the world’s leading companies, and I can’t wait to see what exciting new technologies Amazon will be developing right here in America’s Finest City.”

Amazon’s San Diego Tech Hub is one of 17 Tech Hubs outside of Seattle that employ over 17,500 people across North America who invent and build new products and services for Amazon customers. The teams in San Diego develop software systems that power AmazonFresh, Prime Now, Amazon Web Services (AWS), supply chain tech, and prevent fraud and abuse on Amazon. San Diego-based engineers and scientists recently played a key role in the launch of Whole Foods Market pickup and delivery via Prime Now, Alexa features for grocery shopping, and data-driven and machine learning innovations to further protect Amazon customers.

Additionally, the Amazon Game Studios team located in San Diego is in the process of creating a new game world that will harness AWS’s cloud computing services and Twitch to connect players worldwide.

Over the past seven years, the company has invested more than $160 billion in the US, including corporate offices, development and research centers, fulfillment infrastructure, and compensation to its employees. (SV)
