Amazon says it's looking to hire 55,000 people worldwide

There are dozens of warehouse team member positions available at central Indiana locations as well.

INDIANAPOLIS — Amazon is going on another hiring spree. 

The company said Wednesday that it plans to hire 55,000 people around the world, with about 40,000 of those roles in the U.S. 

The open roles are for tech jobs and corporate positions. 

While other companies laid off workers during the pandemic, Amazon’s workforce ballooned as more people stayed home and ordered toilet paper and groceries from the shopping site. Last year alone, it hired 500,000 people. 

Amazon currently employs more than 1.3 million worldwide, making it the second-largest private U.S. employer after retail rival Walmart.
