Amazon.com Inc. plans to create 2,500 corporate and technical jobs in Southern California, including more than 700 in San Diego, the company announced Tuesday.

The new jobs “include roles in building cloud infrastructure, improving Alexa experience and cutting-edge video game design,” said Holly Sullivan, Amazon vice president of global economic growth. “It’s a fantastic opportunity for Californians of all backgrounds to join Amazon and build a successful career.”

To serve the San Diego expansion, Amazon has signed a lease with Seritage Growth Properties and Invesco for a 123,000-square-foot space at the University Town Center. The new office space is expected to open to employees in early 2023.

About 1,000 tech and business employees already work at Amazon’s San Diego Technology Center at 10300 Campus Point Drive.

Amazon also said it would create more than 1,000 jobs in Santa Monica and more than 800 in Irvine.

According to the online retail giant, various roles are already available, including software development engineers, game designers and user experience designers, along with positions in human resources, finance, IT and more.
