Amazon to hire 10,000 in Seattle in following years

Amazon Inc. plans to create 10,000 new jobs in the Seattle suburb of Bellevue in the next couple of years, the company announced on Friday.

In order to accommodate the influx of new employees, Amazon has earlier signed leases on two major properties in downtown Bellevue, the statement read, noting that the combined space of the two buildings amounts to more than 2 million square feet. "We look forward to bringing more jobs to Bellevue - contributing to a regional growth strategy that can create opportunities for people across the Puget Sound," the company noted.

The e-commerce giant has announced earlier that it also plans to expand its workforce in the United Kingdom as well.
