Amazon’s HQ2 in New York will be in Long Island City, an industrial area in Queens. The other new headquarters will be located in Crystal City, Virginia, just outside of Washington, D.C. Amazon said it would hire 25,000 people in each HQ2 location over 10 to 12 years. The Crystal City office doesn’t have any openings listed yet.
Amazon plans to hire 50 people for the ICC team in New York this year, according to the job posts. The listings are for a front-end engineer and a software development manager.
“Our expansion in HQ2 will allow ICC to meet its ever increasing staffing needs and provide the engineering leadership necessary across all of the other Amazon teams we work with that will also establish a base in HQ2 in the future,” the descriptions say.
In a statement after this story was published, Amazon said these positions will be in current New York City offices, and not in HQ2.
