As well as the studio, it is hiring people to work at its new London head office, at three research and development centres - in Cambridge, Edinburgh and London - and at a customer service centre in Edinburgh.
It will also recruit people for its 10 warehouses and its new Amazon Web Services data centres, due to launch next year.
The etailer has invested £4.6bn into its UK infrastructure and operations since 2010. The latest move will bring its total number of UK employees to 14,000.
“Britain has a world-class tech sector with a reputation for innovation and excellence,” said Amazon UK’s managing director, Christopher North.
“These new jobs we are creating up and down the country are testament to the quality of the workforce in the UK and our confidence in its economy, which we are proud to support through our continued investments.”
