About Amazon.com, Inc.

Company Description

Amazon, a Fortune 500 company based in Seattle, Washington, is the global leader in e-commerce. Since Jeff Bezos started Amazon in 1995, we have significantly expanded our product offerings, international sites, and worldwide network of fulfillment and customer service centers. Today, Amazon offers everything from books and electronics to tennis rackets and diamond jewelry. We operate sites in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Japan, Canada, Italy, and China (Joyo.com) and maintain dozens of fulfillment centers around the world which encompass more than 26 million square feet.

 

Company History

Our founder Jeff Bezos established Amazon in his home garage in 1994. In less than a decade, he realized his vision of creating a destination where people can find anything they might want to buy online. Today, Amazon is a Fortune 500 company with seven global websites that offer customers an expanding selection of tens of millions of products across categories ranging from books and music to apparel and home electronics. When Bezos said that “we are a company of builders,” he really meant it. And it’s just as evident today.
 

Working Here

At Amazon, every employee is focused on the customer. It’s a challenging place where business and technology professionals work together to develop innovative solutions to challenging business objectives. Like you, we have an unwavering dedication to productivity, and every employee is challenged to "think like an owner." Find out where you fit in.
 

Benefits

There are many things to consider when deciding on your next employer. At Amazon we offer employees the chance to work with great people, on exciting projects, with a ton of opportunity for growth.

But we also recognize that Amazonians have a life outside of work and need a break every once in a while. That's why we provide a full range of benefits for you and your eligible family members. While the benefits may vary slightly from location to location, these are the basics for full-time, U.S. employees:
  • Health Care
  • Time Off
  • Savings Plans
  • Employee Stock
  • Relocation Assistance
