This is absolutely great news for the capital.

Dublin is getting a big job boost as 1000 new jobs are on the way as one of the world's biggest companies sets up shop here.

Amazon web services has announced that it is creating a new HQ for its cloud computing business on Burlington Road with the creation of a thousand jobs.

"The new roles currently include Software Development Engineers, Network Development Engineers, Data Centre Engineers, Support Engineers, Solutions Architects, Systems Engineers, Optical Deployment Engineers, Security Specialists, Big Data Specialists, DevOps Engineers, and a range of technical management positions for both Amazon and Amazon Web Services."

So let all your techy friends know, quick-style as recruitment for the new roles are already underway and they hope to have all 1000 jobs filled up by 2020.

Brian Hayes MEP described the announcement as a "great boost for capital and clear signal that Ireland investment pipeline is strong".

“Today, we have more than 2,500 Amazon employees in Ireland supporting customers from Ireland and around the world,” said Mike Beary, AWS Ireland country manager. “There is an abundance of talent in Ireland which helped us to exceed our talent growth targets ahead of schedule. Ireland is a great place to do business, the country’s creative culture and diverse pool of technical skills make it an ideal location for our rapidly expanding business.”

The Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, T.D. said: “This is excellent news for Dublin. Amazon's decision to bring another 1,000 jobs to Ireland underpins our mission to make this country an innovative, digital economy and a global leader for the tech sector. These are well paid, high quality jobs, in four locations across Dublin, meaning this announcement will bring tangible benefits right across the city. The creation of these new jobs and the company's commitment to investing in research and innovation here is fundamental to maintaining Ireland’s reputation as tech hub for Europe."
