Amazon today announced the creation of 500 high-tech jobs in Ireland. The highly-skilled roles include data centre technicians, software engineers and customer support staff among others, to be hired over the next two years at a number of Dublin facilities.
Amazon’s first appointments in Ireland were data centre technicians and networking staff. Since then, the business has grown dramatically both in the numbers of staff and the diversity of their roles. Dublin has also been a location for engineering new technologies to support a number of Amazon’s businesses including its retail operations, devices and Amazon Web Services (AWS). This latest recruitment drive is part of Amazon’s plans to create several thousand more new jobs in Europe.
The highly skilled new roles currently being recruited include: Software Development Engineers, Network Development Engineers, Data Centre Engineering, Support Engineers, Systems Engineers, Optical Deployment Engineers, Security Specialists, Big Data Specialists, DevOps Engineers, and a range of technical management positions.
“Amazon has a long history of success in Ireland and adding 500 jobs to their current workforce is testament to the high quality technical talent that is readily available throughout the country. IDA Ireland will use this announcement in our worldwide marketing efforts to highlight Ireland’s suitability as a place to invest.”
