Amazon to employ 3000 people at new Vancouver facility

Canada Post building

(AMZN) said that it plans to expand its Boston Tech Hub and create an additional 2,000 technology jobs in fields including machine learning, speech science, cloud computing, and robotics engineering.

About Amazon Amazon is guided by four principles: customer obsession rather than competitor focus, passion for invention, commitment to operational excellence, and long-term thinking.

City and state officials have shared few details of their HQ2 talks with Amazon, but have signaled little willingness to pony up the kind of massive subsidy package being offered by other contenders such as Maryland and New Jersey.

Amazon shares closed 0.41% lower at $1,566.13, in the US Monday.

Amazon has announced it will be hiring another 2,000 people to expand its Boston Tech Hub, the office where its artificial intelligence work is centred.

The company's Seaport Square space is expected to open in 2021. For anyone who makes money through the internet, this is an exciting prospect. The company also said Monday that it would add 200 jobs to a Minnesota office opened in 2016.

The plan is unrelated to Amazon's search for a second headquarters that attracted 238 bids from 43 USA states, as well as from Washington and Puerto Rico, six Canadian provinces, and three Mexican states.

In January, Amazon placed Boston among 20 finalists to host the company's second North American headquarters, and Tuesday's announcement does not preclude the city from contention for the $5 billion project that the e-commerce giant has said would create some 50,000 jobs over the next decade.

The state of Washington also has a $300,000 budget to study a plan for fast trains connecting Vancouver, Seattle and Portland.

British Columbia's former Liberal government approved the pipeline project, but the current NDP government has asked the province's highest court to determine if B.C. has the power to enact environmental laws that would restrict the flow of diluted bitumen through the province.
