The space will be home to 2,000 workers from various fields of expertise, like robotics, machine learning, speech science and cloud computing.

Last year, the e-commerce giant announced plans to hire more than 100,000 workers - from entry-level positions to engineers and software developers - over the following 18 months.

It's confirmation of a move that has been much-talked-about in Boston's tech and real estate circles in recent months, as WS Development negotiated a lease for a full, 430,000-square-foot building in its Seaport Square project and $5 million in city property tax breaks for Amazon.

Amazon now employs more than 1,000 researchers and engineers in Vancouver, primarily creating new products and services for the company's worldwide retail business and Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Amazon is expanding its Vancouver tech hub and bringing 3,000 new jobs to the city by 2022. Amazon already has a total of 6000 Canadian employees. Now Inc. may give Canada's costliest market another boost. The company now employs about 1,200 workers in technology development offices in the region. But Amazon is hiring aggressively in cities all over the world.

Additionally, as part of Amazon's ongoing commitment to the communities where our employees live and work, the company recently made a $1 million match offer to St. Mary's Center to support their efforts to create a new Community Resource Center on their Dorchester campus, and donated more than $100,000 to nonprofits throughout the state of MA.
