The e-commerce giant is planning to hire 30,000 new workers by sometime in 2020. Roles it is looking to fill range from warehouse staff to software engineers. According to Yahoo, Amazon will start holding hiring events on September 17. They will be in the cities of Chicago, Boston, Dallas and Nashville. Another will be in Seattle, where the company's main headquarters are. Arlington, Virginia, the home of Amazon's second HQ, will also have a hiring event. I encourage anyone willing to think big and move fast to apply for a job with us. You'll get to invent and see Amazon making even bolder bets on behalf of our customers. Amazon adds that all of the positions it is looking to fill will be full-time roles. Those hired will also receive company benefits.
