US e-commerce giant, Amazon has started hiring workers for its Nigerian office which will start operations by the first quarter of 2021. The company advertised various positions on LinkedIn, the career social media site.
Amazon listed openings for enterprise account managers, start-up segment leaders, and senior partner sales managers, among others.
Prime wave reported that the global e-commerce company will commence operations in Nigeria next year as part of its plans to expand to Nigeria, South Africa and other countries in Africa, Europe and Asia.
The company will create a marketplace in all the five countries where it wants to set up shops with access to its Amazon’s Fulfilment service known as Fulfilment Amazon. The company already operates in 30 countries. It will create competition among local players like Jumia, Konga, and Thryve Platforms as it expands operations to Belgium, Chile, Columbia, Nigeria and South Africa by April 2023.
Experts have said the company’s operations in developing markets have not been impressive despite having a presence in over 20 countries.
