Amazon is hiring for over 300 positions in South Africa, including technical, customer service, human resources, and project management roles.
The international online retail giant has been increasing its presence in South Africa, with plans to open a headquarters at Cape Town’s River Club.
Amazon has had a team in Cape Town since 2004, when South African Chris Pinkham established one to develop Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) in the city.
Following the success of the Cape Town office, Amazon launched its customer service operations in the city six years later.
It then further expanded its South African presence by opening an Amazon Web Services (AWS) office in Johannesburg in 2015.
