TechTrade | 28 May 2012 :
Online retailer Amazon has annouced the creation of 100 jobs at its development centre in Kilmainham Dublin. The new jobs will include support engineers, systems engineers, network engineers, software developers and technical managers.
The centre is home to a team of engineers and developers which supports the design and deployment of Amazon websites. The centre also hosts an Amazon Web Services' developer support team, which provides technical assistance for customers using applications like Amazon Simple Storage Service, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Relational Database Service, Amazon DynamoDB, and Amazon CloudFront.
Welcoming the announcement, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton said: "Central to the Government's plans for jobs and growth is ensuring that we deepen and develop the impact of multinational companies here, and we are determined to convince more companies to locate more high-end activities here and create more jobs. Over recent months we have seen a string of top companies decide to locate investments and jobs here.
"Today's announcement that Amazon is creating over 100 high end engineering and software development jobs at its Development Centre is great news for Dublin and for Ireland. It shows what is possible in a stable Irish economy, and we as a Government are determined to ensure that the strong flow of jobs we have seen in recent months from top multinational companies can continue, and we can create the jobs and growth we need."
The expansion is supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.
