Amazon expands Tech City hub by hiring 100 new employees

AMAZON has announced plans to expand its global development hub in London, hiring 100 staff to work on new projects.

The web retailer opened the eight-floor centre in Barbican in September, moving staff from its two UK acquisitions, Lovefilm and Pushbutton, to the office where hundreds are employed.

The new staff, who will be hired over the next few months, will be working on bringing Amazon’s on-demand video services to new devices, such as new games consoles and tablets.

“We are growing all the time and seeing ever increasing demand for our services,” Amazon’s Paula Byrne told City A.M.
