Amazon currently employs more than 170,000 people across California, with thousands of roles available from tech to logistics

Amazon announced plans to create more than 2,500 corporate and technology jobs over the coming years in multiple cities across California. The company will expand its Tech Hubs in San Diego and the Los Angeles area, including Irvine and Santa Monica, as it seeks to recruit local talent and continue inventing and innovating on behalf of its customers. These latest investments come after Amazon opened more than 15 sites across Southern California and created more than 17,000 jobs statewide in 2021 alone.

The reskilling program builds local talent by providing cloud skills training in communities.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) re/Start is starting new cohorts in 10 cities this summer, including launching for the first time in Oakland, California; Phoenix, Arizona; and Charlotte, North Carolina. AWS re/Start is a 12-week, full-time, classroom-based skills development and job training program that reskills learners for careers in the cloud and connects them to potential employers. The mission of the program is to build local talent by providing cloud skills development and opportunities to unemployed or underemployed individuals.
