Amazon plans to add 125 corporate positions in Las Vegas

Amazon plans to more than double its corporate workforce in Las Vegas by creating 125 additional positions, the company announced Thursday.

The additional employees will join its current corporate workforce of 100 at the company’s recently leased 30,000-square-foot office space in Town Square Las Vegas. Amazon took the second floor of the building at 6551 Las Vegas Blvd. South.

Amazon Las Vegas Site Lead Tami Dennis said that the office will support the online retailer’s companywide human resources operations and Amazon is looking to hire for positions specific to that sector.

“We have some (jobs) that are posted now, and as we continute to grow, we’ll post more in the future,” Dennis said.

The Las Vegas office serves a number of employee needs such as managing leave of absence and accommodation services, including American Sign Language interpreters for Amazon employees and candidates applying for jobs, according to the company’s news release Thursday.

Dennis said she couldn’t speak to why Town Square was an attractive location but noted Las Vegas was chosen for its “phenomenal talent.”
