Amazon: 'Nordic customers are among the most innovative users of cloud computing in the world'

Amazon's cloud computing business, Amazon Web Services, is expanding into the Nordic region, with Stockholm its new base. The Stockholm office will be among the first locations for Amazon Web Services in Europe and a symbol for the Swedish capital's growing influence on the global tech market.

"We have found that Nordic customers are among the most innovative users of cloud computing in the world and our early experiences with businesses in the region led us to make the Nordics a focal point for Amazon Web Services," said Peter Fuchs, head of the company's Nordic operations, which is currently looking for staff for its Stockholm office.

"We see the Nordics as one of the world's leading innovation centers, challenging places like London, Berlin and Tel Aviv," Fuchs said.

The Nordics have provided a growing number of customers for Amazon's Web Service (AWS), which was launched in 2006. Fuchs spoke of an "explosion of Nordic innovation and growth, driven by entrepreneurial spirit and a willingness to experiment and embrace new technologies". As a result the company has partnered some of the Nordic region's leading innovators, from start-ups like Rovio and Spotify, to established enterprises, such as Nokia, Ericsson and Telenor Digital.

Why did you choose Stockholm as a Nordic hub?
"Stockholm is the largest city in the Nordic region and many of the region’s largest and fastest growing companies have an office here. Many AWS customers are also based here so it made sense for us to have an office here as it means we can better serve our customers and help them in their move to the cloud," Fuchs said.

"We also see great technology talent in the region, which is why we are hiring!"

Amazon Web Services is a collection of online services that together make up a cloud computing platform, offered over the Internet by Amazon.com.The company is currently looking to hire managers, solutions architects and other staff to cover all Nordic countries.
