Amazon creates 100 development jobs in Dublin

Internet retail giant Amazon is to create 100 jobs in Dublin.

Recruitment is already under way for a variety of IT engineers, software developers and technical managers for the company’s development centre.

Richard Bruton, Jobs Minister, said the new jobs were high end and part of the drive to get multinationals investing more in Ireland.

“It shows what is possible in a stable Irish economy, and we as a Government are determined to ensure that the strong flow of jobs we have seen in recent months from top multinational companies can continue, and we can create the jobs and growth we need,” he said.

Paul Conlon, managing director of the Amazon development centre in Dublin, said they hope to have the new staff in place for the busy Christmas period.

“Dublin has proven to be an excellent location for finding the top talent we need to support our continued growth and we are delighted to be expanding here,” he said.

The development centre opened in 2005 and moved to Kilmainham two years ago.
