The Recruiting Engine team is reinventing how we recruit at Amazon

Reinventing recruitment at Amazon

Recruiting Engine designs and creates online experiences and assessments for job candidates, builds digital ecosystems and connected platforms for employees, and provides tools and services for recruiters.

We are redefining recruitment to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion in hiring. Our work is deeply human—we support people so they can support themselves and their families.

Our team is made up of software developers, product and program managers, UX practitioners, and scientists.

Recruiting Engine supports the candidate journey from, “So, you think you want to work for Amazon?” to “Welcome to Amazon!”

We empower job seekers to first identify the types of roles that interest them, and then to find and apply to those roles. We help people find meaningful work and support them so they can have successful careers at Amazon.

The family of products we work on has grown to include both candidate-facing tools and internal tools for hiring managers and recruiters. Serving more than one million employees, we build our tools to a scale not found anywhere else.

    Vancouver, Canada

    Our office is in downtown Vancouver, within walking distance of the waterfront, Stanley Park, too many great restaurants to count, and convenient transportation options. Vancouver is home to several Amazon offices, all within walking distance of each other, making for a vibrant local Amazon community.

    Home to a burgeoning tech scene, Vancouver is quickly becoming the Silicon Valley of the North. You can fit in meetups with local tech experts between visits to gourmet coffee shops, trips to one of the many nearby ski hills, or afternoons on many local beaches.
