Amazon

Our company in a nutshell

We don't choose our passions—our passions choose us. Help people get published, write a screenplay, or sell products to millions of customers around the world.

Support the next hot start-up. Start your career with us...

A truly global company

Amazon is an electronic commerce and cloud computing company founded back in 1994. We are now the largest Internet-based retailer in the world, by total sales and market capitalisation.

In London, our new UK head office in Shoreditch is a mixed-use development with half an acre of public piazza and events space dedicated to retail, including cafés and restaurants offering alfresco dining. This is our Development Centre, which primarily focuses on research and development for Amazon’s global Prime Video service.

Our continued investment in employee facilities is part of Amazon’s long-term commitment to the UK, having invested £6.4 billion here since 2010 and, moving forward, pledging to create 5,000 new jobs over the coming years to reach 24,000 permanent employees across the country.

Start Your Amazon Career

From day one at Amazon, you'll take ownership of projects that have a direct impact on our customers. We take our Leadership Principles seriously—and they give you great insight into what to expect when you join Amazon.

We seek top talent from across industries and a range of backgrounds, from ex-forces and military spouses, to the top MBA and undergraduate graduates who join our offices around the world. All of the men and women who succeed at Amazon have something in common—they are customer-centric, they are leaders and they are innovators.

Amazon opportunities

At Amazon, our evolution has been driven by the spirit of innovation that is part of our DNA. As a new college graduate or intern, you will have multiple opportunities to innovate and solve complex real-world technical and business problems as you join us on our journey.

The work environment here is fast-paced and continually evolving, and every Amazonian is passionate about ownership and delivering results for the company. If you want to work in an environment that will challenge you to relentlessly improve the experience for our customers, take a look at our many University opportunities HERE.

Giving back to communities

We believe the excitement of reading should be shared by everyone. That's why we donate devices—we love igniting that excitement of reading among pupils.

Our Device Donation Programme takes place in schools across Europe and around the world. We bring devices to students and provide schools with gift cards to purchase content. Often we donate to school districts near our fulfilment centres—a way to give back on behalf of our employees.
