New Irish Jobs

This June, Amazon announced that it is creating more than 1,000 permanent new jobs in Ireland over the next two years. In addition to central Dublin, where Amazon opened a new 170,000 square foot building, these highly skilled roles will be based in Amazon locations in North County Dublin, Blanchardstown, and Tallaght.

Amazon’s history of commitment to Ireland

After first opening an office in Ireland in September 2004, Amazon extended its commitment and investment in the country, and in April 2006 opened a Customer Service Centre in Cork. The Customer Service Centre now spans over 47,500 square feet and employs more than 1,000 people in a variety of roles from Instructional Designers and Support Engineers, to Operations Managers and Capacity Planners.

In November 2007, Amazon Web Services (AWS) opened its first EU region in Ireland. Since then AWS has grown the number of staff and the diversity of their roles. AWS now has highly skilled staff and teams of Account Managers, Data Centre Engineers, Logistics Managers, Mechanical Technicians, Professional Services, Security Specialists, Solutions Architects, Support Engineers, Technical Account Managers, and Trainers based in Dublin. These teams are working with customers in every industry, across almost every imaginable use case.

Today AWS’s teams in Ireland engineer new technologies to support Amazon’s businesses, including our retail operations, customer services, seller services, devices, and AWS. There are currently more than 2,500 Amazon employees across Ireland and more than 1,000 engaged in data centre operations.
