Amazon Opens 85,000 SF Office Expansion in San Diego
SAN DIEGO — Amazon has opened an 85,000-square-foot office within Alexandria Real Estate Equities’ Campus Pointe, located in the University Town Center neighborhood of San Diego. The new space will house the company’s expanded San Diego Tech Hub, which will include 300 new high-tech jobs in fields in the software development, machine learning, cloud computing and digital entertainment.
Amazon’s San Diego Tech Hub is one of 17 Tech Hubs outside of Seattle that employ more than 17,500 people across North America who invent and build new products and services for Amazon customers. Employees at the San Diego Tech Hub develop software systems for AmazonFresh, Prime Now, Amazon Web Services, supply chain tech, and preventing fraud and abuse on Amazon. Additionally, 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-drive and machine-learning innovations.
This expansion more than doubles Amazon’s tech workforce in the San Diego area.
