Amazon to Open 98,000 SF Office Location in Denver, Plans to Create 400 New Tech Jobs
DENVER — Amazon plans to expand its Denver Tech Hub and create 400 new high-tech jobs in a variety of fields, including software engineering, hardware engineering, cloud computing and advertising.
To accommodate this growth, the company will open a 98,000-square-foot office at Invesco’s 1515 Wynkoop building in Denver’s Lower Downtown district. Currently, Amazon has more than 350 employees in the Denver area, building new products and services for the company’s retail, advertising and Amazon Web Services businesses.
The company’s new office joins the company’s Boulder office, which opened last fall, and will allow Amazon to more than double its tech workforce in the Denver area. In total, Amazon has created more than 3,500 full-time jobs in Colorado. Over the last three years, Amazon has invested more than $1.5 billion in Colorado including infrastructure, compensation and Whole Foods Market.
