The expansion will strengthen an Austin hub that is already among Amazon ’s largest locations in the United States and Canada. The company said new hires here will be focused in the software and hardware engineering, research science and cloud computing divisions.
Greg Abbott said that with Amazon's expansion in Austin, “Texas will continue to chart a path toward greater economic prosperity.” Amazon ’s Austin's growth is part of an effort set in motion years ago and not related to the company’s recent pullout of a planned headquarters site in New York, Deeper said.
Amazon will not receive any financial incentives from the state or from local governments to open the new facility, according to the Greater Austin of Chamber of Commerce. As one of the world’s largest companies, with a market value approaching $900 billion, Amazon's tentacles reach throughout Central Texas.
Besides its presence at the Domain, at the six Whole Foods stores here and the warehouse in San Marcos, Austin is home to one of Amazon ’s bookstores and has been a site for new delivery and shopping projects by the company. In January 2018, Amazon named Austin as one of 20 finalists for its $5 billion-second headquarters project, which the company had announced in September 2017, spurring a more than yearlong public search.
Amazon eventually chose to split the development between New York’s Long Island City and Arlington, Va., which offered the company billions in combined incentives. Amazon decided to kill its plans for New York after backlash over the incentives offered by the city and state.
Editor's note: An earlier version of this article stated that Amazon employs 3,000 workers at its San Marcos warehouse, according to the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce. Back There are a total of 7 warehouses & delivery locations near AUSTIN, TX.

But today, we hear all the time that developers of all sizes aspire to build games that bring fans together to play, compete, create, and socialize. Not only is Austin a great location for experts who have passion and deep experience building some of our favorite MMOs, multiplayer, and community-driven games, it’s also home to one of our new Twitch teams who just set up shop there in July.
The e-commerce giant has been steadily adding on services and benefits to Prime membership, expanding from its original core of two-day delivery. Amazon announced on Wednesday that it will shortly be opening its eighth retail location on or near a US college campus.
The new store will be located on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin, in Gregory Gymnasium, and it is scheduled to open in summer 2016. The 2,500 square foot space will give students and staff “a convenient location to pick up and return Amazon orders, including virtually everything one needs, from everyday essentials to technology”.
That makes for eight planned or operating pickup locations in less than two years, none of which are targeted at regular consumers. Instead, Amazon is pursuing what could be called the Facebook approach: target college campuses first, and only later expand to serve the general population.
Something tells me that the panic over Amazon directly competing with bookstores is overblown, wouldn’t you agree? The initiative was launched Nov. 4 and is part of the e-commerce giant’s “Second Chance” program, which is “a resource for customers to identify how to recycle and dispose of packaging and products,” a company spokesperson told E-Scrap News.
Amazon operates locations where customers can receive deliveries, rather than having packages delivered to a residence. Participating Amazon Hub sites are located in Austin, Texas; Boston; Chicago; College Park, Md.
Columbus, Ohio; Los Angeles; Lubbock, Texas; Pittsburgh; San Jose, Calif.; and Seattle. Era maintains processing sites relatively close to all the Amazon locations that are part of the program.

We look forward to re-opening the public program once there’s more clarity on the global health situation, and thank you for your understanding. The FC Tours program offers public tours in 45 sites globally, allowing visitors to see what it’s like to work in an FC as well as get a glimpse of the great technology and people that make Amazon what it is today.
Each site provides free public tours at least twice per day, Monday through Friday* in addition to hosting many private groups consisting of schools, youth organizations, customers, businesses, media, politicians, and more. If you’ve ever wondered how that product in your online shopping cart gets from Amazon to you, now is your chance to come see for yourself.
Many centers for example, span the equivalent of 28 football fields and can hold tens of millions of items on any given day. Our amazing employees pick, pack, and ship Amazon customer orders at more than 175 similar facilities worldwide.
If you are not able to attend, please refer back to your confirmation or reminder email to cancel your reservation. This includes how our amazing employees support customer fulfillment through the pick, pack, and ship processes.
