The multinational e-commerce giant Amazon will be opening its Barcelona logistics center in El Prat de Llobregat and starting the delivery of packages on 4 October. The company is planning to create no less than 1,500 jobs at the new site in three years’ time. As of right now, 40 open positions await those who are looking for a job in IT, engineering and human resources.
Amazon is looking to hire people for as many as 40 different positions including IT Support Engineer, Control Systems Engineer, Engineering Project Manager, Continuos Improvement Manager, Operations Manager, Stores Coordinator, Health and Safety Manager and HR Manager, among others, according to the job listing available on Amazon’s website.
The ongoing construction of Amazon’s second logistics center in Spain, following the one opened in Madrid in 2012, requires a 200 million euro investment and will eventually create 1,500 jobs. Initially, the center will function with a total of 500 employees, working its way up throughout the years.

Amazon’s expansion to the Barcelona area began to manifest eight months ago when the company purchased the land in El Prat de Llobregat where the new structure is now being built on a 63,000 square meter area. Construction started in July last year.
The location was selected because of its proximity to the city of Barcelona and the El Prat Airport. This advantageous position will allow the new logistics center to deliver packages to not only Barcelona and Catalonia, but all of Europe.
