Only days after it was reported that Apple was making a move to Cambridge, it looks like Amazon are following suit.
According to reports, the online giant is expanding its R&D operation in the city.
Drones and speech
It appears the company will be focusing on its automated drone delivery service, with the flight engineer vacancy requiring “5+ years of relevant aviation experience” and “2+ years in a safety-related role”.
Evi Technologies develops software very similar to Siri’s. Reports also suggest that Amazon will be developing its speech technology, which is to be used in a number of Amazon products.
Amazon’s London base
In September, Amazon announced it would be doubling its UK workforce.
The company is set to take up over two-thirds of the 600,000 sq ft building, known as Principal Place.
Amazon plans to move all its non-R&D or warehouse staff to London by next summer.
