Amazon.com, Inc. (AMZN), the world’s largest retailer, has announced its expansion of its San Diego Tech Hub and its intentions to develop 300 new high tech jobs in fields that include machine learning, software development, digital entertainment, and cloud computing.
Amazon’s new 85,000 square foot office expansion resides Alexandria Real Estate Equities, Inc.’s Campus Pointe in the University Town Center neighborhood of San Diego. With the opening of the new office, Amazon can now more than double its tech workforce in the area. Since 2011, the company has created over 39,000 jobs in the state of California and invested more than $19 billion in the state.

San Diego’s teams work to develop software systems that drive AmazonFresh, PrimeNow, Amazon Web Services, supply chain tech, and prevention of fraud and abuse on Amazon.
The company will celebrate its latest California investment by hosting Mayor Faulconer, Assemblymember Gloria, and other community leaders on September 6th for the grand opening event of its new San Diego Office.
