Amazon probing for Boulder office space

Amazon has quietly established a beachhead in the Mile High City.

The tech giant last summer put an office in WeWork’s Union Station building. Eighty employees work there now, an employee on site said, adding that the e-commerce company is hunting for an outpost in Boulder.

Amazon now has job postings for two software engineering positions in Boulder, according to its website. A Boulder tech office would add to Amazon’s other metro-area offices in the Denver Tech Center and Broomfield.

Amazon has 45 Denver jobs posted on its website, including positions for software engineers and data scientists.

Then there are the warehouses it’s putting around the region.

Amazon announced plans July 26 to hire 50,000 people in its fulfillment centers nationwide, where employees will pack and ship orders. It plans to build an 855,000-square-foot fulfillment center in Thornton, set to open in August 2018.

Amazon is not the only massive tech company staking claims in the Mile High City. In May, Apple was close to a lease for 15,000 square feet in the Dairy Block.
