Returning to work? Come and build the future of cloud computing with AWS

Are you looking to return to full time employment after taking a career break? Are you someone who embraces change, ready to embark on your next challenge?

The AWS Returners Program is designed to support individuals like you with a seamless transition back into a permanent position, providing you with all the skills and knowledge needed for success.

This kind of program isn’t exactly commonplace in the working world, but at Amazon Web Services (AWS), we don't mind being called "peculiar". We have our own way of doing things. We focus on removing obstacles so that builders can build.

What does the AWS Returners Program Offer?

AWS helps over a million customers in 190 countries leverage the power of cloud computing. Being a global company isn’t just about worldwide availability or working with international customers; we also see the value in building global teams. Here are some of the benefits that you’ll get from joining us on our program:

  • A global environment – An opportunity for you to work with the world’s leading cloud technology, and with talented people from every corner of the globe.
  • A full-time career – AWS is committed to hiring Returners into long-term, full time roles. This is not a short-term internship but a position that allows you to pick up your career and build a future with us.
  • Flexibility – Flexibility is key in maintaining work-life harmony. While your role is full time, your manager will work with you to establish the best and most productive use of your time.
  • Returners support framework – We understand that coming back to work after an extended break comes with challenges. The Returners Program will provide you with robust onboarding and coaching sessions in your first 6 months. You will also be partnered with a peer coach who is a subject matter expert, who can help ease your transition back into work. Your manager will guide you through your development and provide the necessary functional training to bring your skills up to speed.
  • Great benefits – The perks of being an Amazon employee don't stop at collaborating with great people on exciting and innovative projects. Amazon’s benefits support the needs of our diverse workforce and their family members, no matter what stage they are at in their life or career. See more here.
