Amazon grows presence in Singapore
Amazon is growing its presence in Singapore with the opening of a new 100,000 square foot office.
Spanning three floors, the space is big enough to hold over 30 teams and up to 700 employees.
Called SIN16, the office is designed to optimise agile working, learning and collaboration as Amazon continues to grow its business, operations, and investments in the country.
Employees working at the office will come from the online retail giant’s consumer and corporate functions and there are plans to add more than 200 new jobs to the departments by the end of 2022.
Amazon has created more than 1,000 direct jobs in Singapore since 2019 and now has around 2,000 full-time and part-time employees in the country.
Henry Low, country manage at Amazon Singapore, said: “Our new office at Asia Square demonstrates our ongoing commitment to invest in Singapore, and the long-term potential for the country to be a leader in the global digital economy. The way we work has been changed by the pandemic forever so as our teams continue to grow here, the new space will ensure they have the flexibility and ample space to collaborate, co-create, and continue to innovate on our customers’ behalf.”
