The South Lake Union-based e-commerce giant announced the plans in January to add more than 100,000 full-time employees in the U.S by 2018. Most of them will be in fulfillment centers, though some will be headquarters jobs in Seattle. There are 9,700 job positions in Seattle listed on Amazon’s job page.
Amazon has about 40,000 Washington State employees in corporate offices and fulfillment centers. The company will have more than 30 buildings totaling more than 10 million square feet in downtown Seattle when its ongoing expansion is completed.
The company said its plans to increase its full-time US workforce to more than 280,000 by mid 2018 from 180,000 in 2016.
