E-commerce Giant Amazon opens Office in Riyadh

The new office for Amazon is located in the Riyadh Front Tower, which is the tallest building in the surrounding area. This provides an ideal working environment for the company to both attract and keep talented employees. Amazon has been operating in Saudi Arabia since 2020, when the company opened its first office there. Since then, the e-commerce giant has hired more than 1,400 people across its various business divisions and the new office in order to entice more local talent to join the company and to assist it in innovating for the benefit of customers.

“We are pleased to inaugurate our new office in the capital of Saudi Arabia,” said the Vice President of Amazon Middle East and North Africa. “This confirms our commitment to serving Amazon customers, vendor partners, and employees in the Kingdom, as well as supporting its social and economic growth in line with the Saudi Vision 2030.” Our investments in the Kingdom will continue to expand across a wide range of industries, including e-commerce, smart devices, and payment services, amongst others.

In conjunction with the opening of their new office, Amazon is working on the launch of a new initiative to train local talent; the specifics of this programme are scheduled to be made public later on in the year. In his statement, Abdo Chlala, Director of Amazon GCC, said, “At Amazon, we talk about hiring builders who will help us invent and innovate on behalf of our customers.” Chlala said this in response to a question. We are looking forward to not only welcoming our current builders, but also attracting and developing new talent through our upcoming talent programme, which will be housed in our new office.

At the beginning of March, Amazon also signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to support small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) all over the Kingdom. This MoU was signed with the Ministry of Investment and the Small and Medium Enterprises General Authority. The memorandum of understanding will strengthen Amazon’s position in the regional market, open the door for tens of thousands of small and medium businesses to sell their wares to millions of customers across the Kingdom, and provide assistance to dozens of business owners in the establishment of their own logistics companies.
