Life at AWS

Our workdays are just different here.

We’re a global team of diverse builders committed to bringing our best selves to work in order to make a positive impact for our customers. At AWS, everyone is invited to combine their passion and imagination with cutting-edge technology to develop for one of the world’s largest cloud platforms.


Ownership & Autonomy

From Day One, you’ll be in the driver’s seat when it comes to your development, your career, and your future here at AWS. You’ll be encouraged to explore new possibilities, take risks, and make your mark. But don’t worry—whatever you decide do and however far you stretch, we’ll be behind you every step of the way.


Customer Obsession

Customer first, customer focused, customer centric. Whatever you want to call it, starting with our customers and working backwards is one of our leading principles at AWS. We collaborate closely and listen carefully to earn the trust of our customers. It’s this level of obsession, if you will, that goes into every product, solution, and idea we build here.


An “Experiment & Fail” Culture

We know that to be truly entrepreneurial, failure and innovation are inseparable. To invent you have to experiment. Sometimes those experiments go awry; other times they lead to real breakthroughs. So, we’ve created a culture that doesn’t just accept failure—we encourage it. Because we know that’s where the best ideas bubble up from.


Inclusion, Diversity & Equity

We believe that technology should be inclusive, diverse, and equitable. And we have a responsibility to make that happen. That’s why we’re committed to putting in the work to build a more inclusive environment and equal representation for all.


For Hispanic Heritage Month, team members across the company shared stories about their lives, their AWS experience, and the steps we’re taking to increase Hispanic and Latinx representation.

Our Locations

A global company. Growing exponentially.

When you join AWS, you’ll find a world of possibilities, wherever you’re located. From software developers in Seattle collaborating with their counterparts in Singapore to machine learning researchers in Tel Aviv sharing studies with their peers in Texas, you’ll find smart, passionate, and innovative builders working together to create for the cloud.

The future of work at AWS.

When it comes to working these days, where we work matters more than ever. For a company as large as AWS, no single return-to-office solution will work for every team, so to maximize collaboration and connection, each team will determine what works best for their group. Some teams will continue to work remotely, some may return to the office as a group, or others will opt for a combination of the two. 

We are always looking for the best ways to deliver outstanding results while maintaining flexibility for our builders. If you prefer working remotely, you can search our growing list of remote-only positions for a role that’s right for you. For all other positions, onsite frequency will vary depending on the role and team you apply for.
