Amazon’s hiring boom is cooling off.

The company, Seattle’s largest employer, appears to be seeking the smallest number of new employees in the city in years after a feverish, four-year growth spurt that more than doubled its head count.

Open job postings at Amazon’s headquarters, which stood at more than 9,000 as recently as June, have declined sharply and steadily in the last few months.
