Business Developer - Intern
Next Gen Internship Program - Business Development
AWS is where innovation, risks, and ideas are celebrated. We are builders, we try new things, and imagine big dreams. It is still Day 1 for us, and we are looking for curious and passionate people to be part of our diverse teams of thinkers, testers, and doers. Come join the Australia & New Zealand (ANZ) Amazon Web Services (AWS) Business Development team, and work with the latest cloud technologies that enable our customers to adopt cloud-based solutions.
AWS is a place where builders can build. Our internships offer exceptional opportunities for you to grow your skills. From day one, you will be working with experienced colleagues who love what they do.
Are you ready to embrace the challenge? Come build the future with us.
AWS is looking to hire and develop the next generation of leaders for our organization. We are seeking talented and enthusiastic students who are passionate about solving business problems, innovating and building new processes, and leading high-impact initiatives. The Next Gen Internship Program allows you to gain exposure to the AWS business and our unique Amazonian culture through a rewarding learning experience.
As an intern, you will independently own a key business project that can drive business value, and tasks to support your assigned team. You will hone your leadership and presentation skills, and apply your creativity to innovate for our business. At the end of your internship, all interns will present their project learnings and proposal to a panel of AWS leaders.
As a Next Gen Business Development Intern, you will bring passion for digital transformation, cloud computing services and the opportunity to shape industry-specific messaging, solutions and assets for the ANZ market segment. You will develop business acumen, presentation delivery, and learn more about Amazon culture through working on a real business project. Are you ready to embrace the challenge?
Upon successful completion of the internship program, select interns will receive a full-time offer to join as a Next Gen Graduate after completion of your Degree.
Amazon internships are full-time (38 hours/week) for 10-12 consecutive weeks, from late November 2022-mid February 2023.
Mentorship & Career Growth
Our team is dedicated to supporting new members. We have a broad mix of experience levels and tenures, and we’re building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship. Our senior members enjoy one-on-one mentoring. We care about your career growth and strive to assign projects based on what will help each team member develop into a better-rounded employee and enable them to take on more complex tasks in the future.
Inclusive Team Culture
Here at AWS, we embrace our differences. We are committed to furthering our culture of inclusion. We have ten employee-led affinity groups, reaching 40,000 employees in over 190 chapters globally. We have innovative benefit offerings, and host annual and ongoing learning experiences, including our Conversations on Race and Ethnicity (CORE) and AmazeCon (gender diversity) conferences. Amazon’s culture of inclusion is reinforced within our Leadership Principles, which remind team members to seek diverse perspectives, learn and be curious, and earn trust.
Our team puts a high value on work-life harmony. It isn’t about how many hours you spend at home or at work; it’s about the flow you establish that brings energy to both parts of your life. We believe striking the right balance between your personal and professional life is critical to life-long happiness and fulfillment AND WE encourage you to find your own balance between your work and personal lives.
