Santa Monica, Calif., will see more than 1,000 new positions “over the coming years,” according to the statement. Amazon signed a lease for a 200,000-square-foot space expected to open to employees in the middle of 2023.

Irvine, Calif., will see about 800 new positions open “over the next few years.” Amazon will occupy a new 116,000-square-foot space leased in the area later this year, according to the statement.

And San Diego will see about 700 new positions, according to the statement. Amazon will open to employees a new 123,000-square-foot space in the area early next year.

Amazon opened more than 15 sites across Southern California in 2021, with more than 17,000 jobs in total. Amazon has more than 170,000 jobs in the state.
