Amazon to Expand Tech Hub in Boston With 3,000 New Jobs

The Boston centre will add teams focused on Alexa’s personal assistant, robots, Pharmacy, and online resources unit.

Amazon revealed plans to expand its technology centre in Boston on Tuesday, generating around 3,000 jobs over the next three years.

The Boston centre will add staff focused on Alexa’s personal assistant, robots, Amazon Pharmacy, and the giant web services unit.

The firm, which already employs some 3,700 employees in the Boston area, has rented a new 17-story office tower that is part of the Boston Seaport project.

The complex will be finished in 2024 and will feature a community dog park, retail space and a new performing arts center.

Rohit Prasad, Vice President and Chief Scientist for Alexa, said the new centre would extend the research and growth of the artificial intelligence system.

“Much of the technology that makes Alexa smarter every day is invented in Boston,” Prasad said.

“Our teams here play a key role in driving Amazon’s innovations.”

Amazon’s workforce has been on the rise in recent years and includes about 8,000,000 in the United States as the organisation grows its e-commerce, online platforms, streaming and other ventures while, at the same time, raising the profile of anti-trust law enforcement.
