Amazon is trying to drum up excitement for jobs at HQ2.
In the last few days, the company has posted its first two job openings explicitly referencing its HQ2 office in New York City. Both positions are for engineering jobs for Intelligent Cloud Control (ICC), a team that helps connect Amazon properties, like Kindle, Amazon Video, and Alexa, according to the job descriptions.
Amazon's HQ2 in New York will be in Long Island City, an industrial area in Queens. The other new headquarters will be located in Crystal City, Virginia, just outside of Washington, D.C. Amazon said it would hire 25,000 people in each HQ2 location over 10 to 12 years. The Crystal City office doesn't have any openings listed yet.
"Our expansion in HQ2 will allow ICC to meet its ever increasing staffing needs and provide the engineering leadership necessary across all of the other Amazon teams we work with that will also establish a base in HQ2 in the future," the descriptions say.
In a statement after this story was published, Amazon said these positions will be in current New York City offices, and not in HQ2.
"These jobs are among the hundreds of roles that we are currently hiring for in our existing NYC offices,"
the company said, clarifying the listings. "We haven't posted roles in our Long Island City headquarters yet, but we're excited to kick off our recruiting process later in 2019."
Hiring in the new locations is expected to be slow in the first few years. In New York, the company has said it plans to add 700 jobs in 2019 and close to 3,000 by 2020. It will reach 25,000 by 2028.
Correction: After the story was published, Amazon emailed CNBC a statement saying that the jobs will be in existing New York offices and not in HQ2. The company is amending the job listings to clarify that point.
