The Corporate Office and Technology Development Centre will continue to focus on developing new and innovative features, including helping to build the speech and language solutions behind Alexa, as well as working on key technologies that form the building blocks that are the foundation of AWS.

The new Romanian Amazon and AWS office is home to a new Engineering Center, Technology Development, Speech and Language Solutions for Alexa, as well as Alexa Product Testing, which are all tasked with developing and innovating technology solutions and enhancing Amazon's operations. Amazon and AWS are currently looking among others for software development engineers, language specialists, business service sector generalists, project managers and team managers.

"We are very happy to be opening our new Corporate Office and Development Centre in Bucharest. Our growing teams will now benefit from an 11300 square meter modern office building with first-rate facilities. We are looking forward to continuing our investments in Romania and bringing the brightest talents from around the country and abroad to Bucharest," said Lucian Vornicu, Managing Director, Romania.

"I am delighted that Amazon will create a further 650 new, highly skilled jobs in Bucharest and we congratulate the company for its commitment to Romania. Romania prides itself on the high quality of talent they have here in Bucharest, particularly in the fields of research and technology development. This new investment in Bucharest, highlights the opportunities available here for innovative businesses", said Hans Klemm, US Ambassador to Romania.

"There are many opportunities available within AWS as a result of the new Bucharest office, in particular for software engineers with a specific knowledge of operating systems and virtualization. AWS teams in Bucharest will be working on key technologies for the Elastic Cloud Computing (EC2) service, where they will be developing the operating system and hypervisor. This will give them the opportunity to own, drive, and invent the building blocks that are the foundation of AWS," said Chris Schlaeger, AWS, Director, Software Development.

"The global interest and excitement around Alexa has been incredible and we want to ensure that as many people as possible can experience what it is like to have Alexa helping them on a daily basis. Romania gives us access to high calibre linguists and language engineers, aimed towards improving our efforts around conversational AI," said Rakesh Wanga, Director, Alexa Data Services.
Recruitment for Bucharest Corporate Office and Development Centre jobs is ongoing and those interested in roles should visit romania.amazon.com . All successful candidates will receive attractive salaries and comprehensive benefits including private healthcare and life insurance.

"We want to foster the next generation of tech talent in Romania, therefore we have been partnering with schools and Universities to support talent with thought leadership, financial support and internship opportunities. We hope that over time we will be able to make a big difference to many young men and women who one day will become future leaders in innovation," added Lucian Vornicu.

Amazon has been investing in Romania for years. In 2005, Amazon opened its first office in Romania and has invested almost 100 million EUR, developing next generation technologies and providing an unrivaled customer experience for its customers around the world.
