If you’re interested in working at Amazon, understanding when they have opened up applications for their graduate programs, graduate jobs and internships is helpful knowledge to have so you know when you might need to apply.

What unites all Amazonians (across teams and locations) is that we are all striving to delight our customers and make their lives easier—whoever that customer may be (e.g., consumers, business owners, content creators, employees, etc.). In pursuit of delighting customers, Amazonians have developed many products and services that have transformed the way our customers live their lives and run their businesses.
You'll also hear us say that at Amazon, it's always "Day 1." What do we mean? That our approach remains the same as it was on Amazon's very first day - to make smart, fast decisions, stay nimble, invent, and focus on delighting our customers.
Amazon is an innovation company, where it's always "Day 1". We live our 14 leadership principles every day and everything we do is framed by these principles. If you are looking to grow professionally at a fast pace, this is a great place to be!
- You’re surrounded by innovation: Whether it’s delivering packages in under 24 hours, enabling entrepreneurs to grow their businesses with AWS, or creating great shows to binge watch on a Sunday afternoon, we know that delighting customers requires a lot of innovation. Sometimes that innovation takes the form of small incremental improvements on existing processes, and sometimes it starts with a blank white board and a random idea. When Amazonians see an opportunity to make a process or product better or create a new one from scratch, if it would have a positive impact on our customers, we love figuring out how to make it happen.
- You’re empowered with a lot of ownership: One of the most common things we hear from Amazonians is that they love how much ownership and responsibility they have from the very beginning. The size and scope of what they work on is bigger than they expected coming in. The degree of ownership does differ from role to role, but Amazonians consistently report having much more ownership of their work here than at their previous employers.
- Your growth is accelerated: Many people say that they learn more at Amazon in their first six months than they learned in the first two years at other companies. This is due to the scope, scale, speed, and impact of the projects that people are a part of, as well as the remarkable colleagues that they work with every day. Amazonians are also encouraged to experiment with new possibilities, take risks, learn quickly, and manage constraints by looking for ways to accomplish more with less.
- The work is challenging: The scope and scale of what we do to delight customers is pretty challenging. It requires Amazonians to be resourceful and embrace a high degree of change and ambiguity, while still meeting the high standards that we set for ourselves. Building and delivering things that were never thought possible isn’t easy and Amazonians often find themselves trying to figure out the right path forward without a playbook to tell them what to do.
- You have a voice here and are encouraged to use it: Put very simply, we want to hear what you have to say. Good ideas can’t lead to great products, services, or solutions if you don’t vocalize them. And we strongly believe that the best outcomes come from embracing a variety of perspectives, so at Amazon, we really embrace individual expression, show respect for different opinions, and work together to create a culture where each of us is able to contribute fully. Our unique backgrounds and perspectives strengthen our ability to achieve Amazon’s mission of being Earth’s most customer-centric company.
- Your experience and career development is in your hands: Amazonians are required to chart their own path by driving their own development, career, and future at Amazon. The possibilities you explore, opportunities you take advantage of, and the impact you have are driven by your own ideas, interests, and initiative. There is an endless number of career paths at Amazon, so your path can really be tailored to you, with the expectation that you are the one navigating the right path forward and utilizing all of the resources and people available to make that happen.

Diversity and Inclusion are core values for Amazon. Amazon is an Equal Opportunity-Affirmative Action Employer – Minority / Women / Disability / Veteran / Gender Identity / Sexual Orientation
Amazon has 13 affinity groups, also known as employee resource groups, which bring Amazon employees together across businesses and locations around the world. Some examples include the [email protected], Amazon Women in Engineering (AWE), [email protected], Glamazon, [email protected] to name a few!
- We bring varying backgrounds, ideas, and points of view to inventing on behalf of our customers. Our diverse perspectives come from many sources including gender (cis, trans, identity, expression), race, ethnicity, age, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, culture, education, professional and life experience, age, and the intersections of these and other factors.
- Our Affinity Groups bring employees together across businesses and geographies. With executive and company sponsorship, these groups play an important role in building internal networks for career development, advising Amazon business units, leading in service projects, participating in policy discussions, and reaching out to communities where Amazonians live and work. Since 2016, enrollment in Amazon’s affinity groups has more than doubled in more than 90 chapters worldwide. Visit our Diversity & Inclusion page to learn more
- We believe that every Amazonian should feel comfortable sharing their unique perspectives, and every Amazonian should seek out the perspectives of others. This is ingrained in our leadership principles that guide our company. For example, Are Right, A Lot notes that leaders must seek diverse perspectives and work to disconfirm our own beliefs. This kind of inclusive behavior increases the likelihood that we will be right (a lot) and have the information and insights needed to invent on behalf of all of Amazon’s customers—rather than just a limited subset.
- At Amazon, we don’t sacrifice long-term value for short-term gain. Promoting inclusion and diversity is both a short and long-term investment, which is why we are committed to hiring the best talent of all backgrounds, creating a culture of inclusion at Amazon every day, and growing the next generation of leaders by providing young leaders in underrepresented communities with training in science, technology, engineering, and math.
- Amazon organizes events and programming to celebrate the importance of diversity and inclusion. Grace Hopper Conference (the world's largest technical conference for women in computing) and AmazeCon, the annual conference to learn, be curious, and accelerate understanding around gender diversity at Amazon
