Amazon.com – Why Work For Us?

We have a high bar for ourselves at Amazon.

Most Amazonians will tell you they work hard and smart—100% of the time.  Amazonians will also proudly tell you they wouldn’t have it any other way.  Along with innovation and obsession over customers, hard work is inherently part of any Amazonian’s DNA.

Amazon’s promise to be Earth’s most Customer-centric company is a tall, tough order.  We are grateful to our Customers for their business, and we work hard every day to make sure that we continue to deserve their trust.  We are proud of what we’re building at Amazon because we think it’s something important, it matters to our customers, and it’s something we can tell our grandchildren about.  From our perspective, such things aren’t meant to be easy.

We hire the world’s brightest minds at Amazon, offering an opportunity to make a direct impact and drive change at internet speed. If you are a passionate leader and innovative pioneer, Amazon is looking to hand you the keys to build “what’s next” for generations to come. 

It’s still Day 1 at Amazon—are you ready to join us?

 

Yeah, we work hard here at Amazon, but we have a ton of fun doing it! Fun is a core competency at Amazon—we look for people that have fun at work and make it easy for others to have fun. So, don’t be surprised if your ability to have fun pops up in an interview…

Fun Example #1

Want to bring your best friend to work with you? Employees at Amazon’s corporate headquarters in Seattle, Washington bring their dogs to work every day. Everything canine walks the halls—from Siberian Huskies to Chinese Crested Hairless.  Employees and their dogs enjoy dog biscuits at the reception desks, dog-friendly water fountains in the outside plazas, and lunchtime walks to nearby off-leash dog parks. In fact, we even named one of the buildings in our headquarters after the very first Amazonian dog—a corgi named “Rufus."

Fun Example #2

Like books and music? Dozens of well-known and up-and-coming authors and musicians read and perform for Amazon employees every year. Recent guests have included George R.R. Martin, William Gibson, Mario Batali, Tony Hawk, Erik Larson, Darius Rucker, Everlast, and Suze Orman. Every employee is welcome to join in these exclusive Amazonian-only events! 

Fun Example #3

Enjoy wrapping presents and think it would be fun to see what it takes to get the holiday gifts wrapped and delivered on time? Take the opportunity to volunteer to gift wrap at one of the fulfillment centers. If you normally work at a fulfillment center, volunteer to work with local charities and help coordinate the “Gift Wrap with a Smile” program where charities can earn money for each package they gift wrap!

These are just a few examples—we have ping-pong tournaments, Movember Mustache fundraisers, book clubs, and even tasty bake sales. Check out the slide show on this page to see more fun. 

 

In July of 1995 Amazon made its first sale on the internet: the book "Fluid Concepts & Creative Analogies: Computer Models of the Fundamental Mechanisms of Thought."  Today, Amazon has more than 209 million active customer accounts and more than 2 million active seller accounts. In 2012, Interbrand ranked Amazon.com #20 in their annual ranking of the world’s most valuable brands, and Fortune Magazine ranked Amazon the third most admired company in the world. Some interesting events in Amazon’s history:

  • 1998 Amazon launches its first international sites,  Amazon.co.uk (United Kingdom) and Amazon.de (Germany)        
  • 2000 Amazon launches Amazon.fr (France) and Amazon.co.jp (Japan)
  • 2002 Amazon launches Amazon Web Services, and Amazon.ca (Canada)
  • 2004 Amazon acquires Joyo.com (China) limited, which became Joyo/Amazon in 2007
  • 2005 Amazon introduces Amazon Prime
  • 2007 Amazon launches Kindle
  • 2008 Amazon announces beginning of its Frustration-Free Packaging Initiative
  • 2009 Amazon introduces AmazonWireless
  • 2010 Amazon launches Amazon.it (Italy) and Amazon Mom
  • 2011 Amazon launches Amazon.es (Spain) and AmazonLocal, and introduces Amazon Cloud Drive and Cloud Player, and the Silk, Kindle Fire, Kindle Touch, Kindle Touch 3G
  • 2012 Amazon launches Amazon.com.br (Brazil) and Amazon Wine, and introduces Kindle Paperwhite and Fire HD

We’ve accomplished a lot since our first sale in 1995, but there’s still so much more to do. Come to Amazon and make your own history. It’s still Day 1.
