Amazon and Amazon Web Services (AWS) inaugurated its new HQ and research and development facility in Bucharest, creating 650 new jobs in the technology and corporate fields. The new R&D facility in the Romanian capital will work on several technologies, including for home assistant Alexa and for the AWS infrastructure.

The e-commerce giant already has 1,000 employees in Romania and has invested over EUR 100 million in the past 13 years.

The Bucharest office is located in the northern part of the city and covers over 13,000 sqm. It includes a new engineering center and one for technology development, including for the testing and language solutions development for Alexa.

“The AWS team in Bucharest will work for the technologies of Elastic Cloud Computing (EC2), developing the operating system and the hypervisor,” said Chris Schlaeger, the AWS software development head.
