Change the future, starting with yours

Talented people get to choose where they work, so we are continually striving to make AWS your best choice. From an entrepreneurial spirit that encourages our builders to pursue their passions to an inclusive culture that lets every individual shine, see what we’re doing to make AWS the best place to build and learn.

Why choose AWS?

Builders from across the company reveal why our innovative work, inclusive culture, and collaborative team makes AWS the ideal choice for taking your career to the next level.

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 further develop for the world’s most comprehensive cloud offering.

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

Change doesn’t just happen – we have to make it happen. At AWS, we’re changing the conversation around diversity in tech by empowering every builder to get involved and collaborate on creative ways to strengthen our culture and inclusivity.

What does it mean to be a builder?

We define builder broadly because everyone at AWS plays an essential role in delivering results for our customers. For us, it’s about being curious, pushing boundaries, and working together to build the industry’s most innovative solutions – and much more than that.
