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

With so many jobs to choose from, we work to empower people to first identify the types of roles that interest them, then to find and apply to those roles.

Essentially, our teams support the candidate journey from “So, you think you may want to work for Amazon?” through to “Welcome to Amazon!”. We strive to help people find meaningful work, and support them so that they have have a successful Amazon career.

The family of products we work on has grown to include both candidate facing tools and internal tools for hiring managers and recruiters: and with over one million employees we build them to a scale that is not found anywhere else.
