Amazon.sa has unveiled its new office in Riyadh that houses employees from various sectors of the company’s operations in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, including e-commerce, smart devices, Amazon Payments Services, Amazon Internet Services, and Amazon Advertising.
“We will continue to develop our investments in the Kingdom across various sectors, including e-commerce, smart devices, and Amazon Payment Services, among others,” remarked Ronaldo Mouchawar, Vice President, Amazon Middle East, and North Africa (MENA).
Since the launch of Amazon.sa in 2020, the company has recruited more than 1,400 talents in its various sectors, and the new office paving the way for attracting more local talent to join the company and to help Amazon innovate on behalf of customers.
“At Amazon, we talk about hiring builders who will help us invent and innovate on behalf of our customers. This means investing in the right talent and people who are equipped to be customer obsessed and to continuously improve the customer experience,” commented Abdo Chlala, Director, GCC.
Last March, Amazon.sa signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Ministry of Investment (MISA) and the Small and Medium Enterprises General Authority (Monsha’at). The MoU will enhance Amazon’s presence in the local market, enable tens of thousands of small and medium enterprises to sell their products to millions of customers across the Kingdom, and help scores of entrepreneurs set up their logistics businesses, a press communique concluded.
