Amazon plans to add 2,000 workers to its research and development office in Boston, the company announced Tuesday, confirming reports that the retailer would move into a new waterfront complex in the city. Currently, the company's Vancouver workers produce new products and services for the company's global retail business and Amazon Web Services. Amazon now employs more than 1,000 people in Vancouver. Since Donald Trump became president with the pledge to create thousands of new jobs, US companies have been eager to tout hiring plans even if they've been previously announced. The new positions will focus on ecommerce, cloud computing, and machine learning.

On Monday, Amazon announced plans for a new 416,000-square-foot office in Vancouver, B.C. There are plans to employ 3,000 more workers across similar fields as in Boston.
The Boston area remains on the shortlist for Amazon's second headquarters, with $5 billion in infrastructure investments and 50,000 high-paying jobs expected for that location when it is chosen later this year, CBS4 reported. Real estate analysts say it's unlikely that any company - even one as unconventional as Amazon - would put thousands of new employees in one city neighborhood even as they considered a huge corporate campus elsewhere in town, suggesting this expansion is either the start of a Seaport headquarters or a consolation prize.
