* New efforts highlight Amazon’s growing ambitions
Amazon is forming a couple of new teams to bolster its cloud and logistics businesses, according to new job listings seen by Business Insider.
The online retail giant is launching a new group in San Diego focused on creating software to help manage the distribution of products across Amazon’s network of warehouses.
The job listing for Amazon’s Supply Chain Optimization Technology group seeks an unspecified number of engineers.
“This will be a highly innovative team that is building brand new, mission critical software for millions of customers,” Amazon said in the job listing, noting that it is willing to relocate new hires to San Diego.
A separate recent job listing seeks a “leader and a founding member” of a new team to expand Amazon’s Web Services Marketplace.
AWS Marketplace is an online store that sells software that runs on Amazon’s cloud services. The new team will “extend the types of software that can be purchased through the Marketplace,” according to the listing.
