Amazon has today announced that it will move its Dublin Development Centre to Burlington Plaza later this year.
Located on Burlington Road, Dublin 4, Amazon will occupy three floors of the new premises comprising a total of 69,000 sq. ft. The first phase of the building’s development is due for completion in April and Amazon expects more than one hundred existing employees to move to this new office at this point. All remaining employees are expected to move to the new premises by June 2014.
The Dublin Development Centre opened in 2005. The centre is home to a team of engineers and developers which supports the design and deployment of Amazon Web Services and Amazon websites. The centre also hosts an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Support team which provides technical assistance for customers using applications like Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), Amazon DynamoDB, and Amazon CloudFront.
“Amazon has created hundreds of jobs in Dublin in the last nine years and we’ve found the talent we need to support our continued growth,” said Jeff Caselden, Managing Director of the Amazon Development Centre in Dublin. “We are delighted to be moving into new premises which will provide us with the space we need to continue to create jobs, to offer our employees attractive surroundings with great facilities and to provide a first rate service for our customers.”
Roles at the Development Centre include support engineers, systems engineers, network engineers, software developers and technical managers.
