Amazon, the company based in the United States of America which operates one of the largest online shopping portals, has rented two floors in an office project in Bucharest, real estate market sources say.

The office space, which covers more than 1,500 square metres, is located in Bucharest (BucureÅŸti region), near the city centre.

Amazon first entered the Romanian market in 2005, when it opened a software development centre in IaÅŸi (Nord-Est region, IaÅŸi county). Sources coming from the Romanian information technology market estimated that the Amazon centre in Bucharest will hire up to 600 IT engineers and administrative staff. The job advertisements published by Amazon for the Romanian labour market include software development engineers, database architects, quality assurance engineers and office manager.

Amazon was first established in 1994 by Jeff Bezos and has grown to become a business of more than five billion euro in the meantime.
