Instead, we’re happy to offer a flexible schedule so you can have a more productive and well-balanced life—both in and outside of work. When our community isn't in quarantine, we are geographically diverse. As a member of the SCRM team, you will mostly engage with experts in Seattle (WA), Arlington (VA), and Austin (TX).

Here at AWS, we embrace and learn from our similarities as well as our differences. We are committed to furthering our culture of inclusion, and we welcome teammates from an array of backgrounds and life experiences. We offer the opportunity to belong, connect, and contribute as members of a growing number of active affinity groups and employee resource groups. We host annual and ongoing learning experiences that cover a variety of inclusion and diversity issues, such as our Conversations on Race and Ethnicity (CORE) and AmazeCon (gender diversity) conferences.
