“Amazon has created more than 300,000 new jobs in the U.S. over the last decade – and we’re proud to continue investing and creating opportunities for people across the country,” Jeff Bezos, Amazon’s founder and CEO, said in a press release. “These are jobs with highly competitive compensation and full-benefits from day one, as well as training opportunities to gain new skills in high-demand fields such as robotics and machine learning.”

This is an instrumental event for the region, as Amazon gears up to bring its second headquarters to Northern Virginia. With this move, Amazon is promising to bring 25,000 employees to the area over the next 12 years. Currently, the ecommerce giant has 723 job openings in the D.C. area across various departments including software development, IT, HR, marketing and more. Amazon even has a work from home category, with 739 openings listed, for interested remote workers.
