Careers at AWS
It’s more than a job. It’s AWS.
At Amazon Web Services, we set out every day to innovate and disrupt the status quo. We pride ourselves on pursuing unexpected paths and seeing things from different perspectives. We create work we’re proud of. Geek out over. Work our customers love. Work that will change your resume—and the world. So, let’s get started. We can't wait to see what you build here.
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 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 Featured Offices
The Future of Work
When we first issued a work-from-home policy last year, it was to prioritize the health of our employees and their families during the early days of COVID-19. Today, we understand the importance of reimagining the way we work to offer roles in more locations, with more flexibility, and new growth opportunities. Our goal moving forward at AWS is to ensure our people have a chance to make an impact whether they’re in a remote, hybrid, or on-site position. While our plan continues to evolve, we encourage you to find a role that fits what you’re looking for—wherever you want to be.
