  • Amazon To Create 3,000 High Tech Jobs At Vancouver Tech Hub

According an April 30 release, the Seattle-based tech giant's Vancouver-based Development Centre will be seeking workers in e-commerce technology, cloud computing, and machine learning for its 416,000-square-foot space, which will be located in the Post, a converted mid-20th century post office located in the city's Crosstown neighbourhood.

Justin Trudeau was in Vancouver Monday as Amazon announced it's adding 3,000 new jobs to its west coast office. Amazon employs more than 6,000 people in Canada.

Currently, Amazon currently employs more 1,000 researchers and engineers in the city.

Toronto is the only Canadian city left in the running.

The event will take place outside the old Canada Post headquarters on Georgia Street, leading some to speculate it could become the site of the new Amazon office announced in November.

Apple Is Done With 3D Touch, Says Trusted Analyst
Kuo beforehand noticed that the 6.1-inch model wouldn't have 3D Touch, and now we have more insights about it. However, the 2016 iPhone SE did well without the 3D Touch by using an Android-esque long-press gesture.

"This is great news for Canadian professionals looking for new challenges and new markets, or students ready to enter the job market", Prime Minister Trudeau said.

Over the course of the past five years Amazon has put a priority on Vancouver.

This will be Amazon's third and largest permanent office in the city after its 91,000-sq-ft TELUS Garden office and its new nine storey, 150,000 sq. ft. office building now being built at 402 Dunsmuir Street.

Amazon was recently ranked the fourth most desirable company to work in Canada by LinkedIn, as well as first on Fast Company's Most Innovative Companies, second in Fortune's World Most Admired Companies, and first on The Harris Poll's Corporate Reputation survey.

About Amazon Amazon is guided by four principles: customer obsession rather than competitor focus, passion for invention, commitment to operational excellence, and long-term thinking. Candidates interested in applying for open roles at Amazon's Vancouver Tech Hub can do it here.
