Amazon announced today plans to create 3,500 new tech and corporate jobs across six cities in the United States. The company will expand its Tech Hubs in Denver, Dallas, Detroit, New York (Manhattan), Phoenix, and San Diego, investing more than $1.4 billion into more than 900,000 square feet of office.

In Denver, Amazon’s Tech Hub will grow by an additional 100 jobs with the addition of 20,000 square feet of new office space. The roles will join the already existing 10,500 Amazon employees working in Colorado. Since 2010, Amazon has invested more than $2.8 billion in the state of Colorado.

“People from all walks of life come to Amazon to develop their career – from recent graduates looking for a place to turn their ideas into high-impact products, to veterans accessing new jobs in cloud computing thanks to our upskilling programs,” said Beth Galetti, senior vice president, Human Resources at Amazon. “These 3,500 new jobs will be in cities across the country with strong and diverse talent pools. We look forward to helping these communities grow their emerging tech workforce.”

Teams in each city will support various businesses across Amazon, including AWS, Alexa, Amazon Advertising, Amazon Fashion, OpsTech and Amazon Fresh, among others, the release said. The company expects to hire for a variety of roles, from cloud infrastructure architects and software engineers, to data scientists, product managers, and user experience designers.

Since 2010, Amazon has directly created more than 600,000 jobs in the U.S, and invested more than $350 billion across more than 40 states, including infrastructure and compensation. We estimate that Amazon’s direct investments have contributed an additional $315 billion to the U.S economy over the last decade and supported more than 780,000 jobs on top of the company’s direct hires in industries like construction, logistics or professional services.
