Amazon China Hires

Amazon Inc. is hiring hundreds of employees to fill jobs ranging from Internet software engineers to designers in China. This news comes as a surprise to many, as the company’s Chinese counterpart, Alibaba, holds a large percent of the market share. Amazon has listed about 400 Chinese-based openings on its careers website and more than 900 on LinkedIn. Amazon’s market share was 1.1% of China’s online gross merchandise value in 2015, and by 2016, this figure had fallen to a mere 0.8%, according to iResearch.
