Who are we

Amazon ( is the world’s largest online retailer and a prominent cloud service provider via AWS. Amazon is guided by four principles: customer obsession rather than competitor focus, passion for invention, commitment to operational excellence, and long-term thinking. Amazon strives to be Earth’s most customer-centric company, Earth’s best employer, and Earth’s safest place to work.

Amazon’s is committed to its Customers, Communities, and Employees. From the first book we delivered in 1995 to today’s tech advances we once only imagined, Amazon delivers inclusive experiences and technology to over 60 countries around the world. Together, our employees harness the power of our differences to build a brighter future for each other, our customers, and the community.

What we do

Our passion for delighting customers drives us to constantly invent on their behalf. Working backward from customer needs, we’re constantly seeking to improve our services, add benefits and features, and invent new products. With this in mind, over the years we’ve launched innovative services such as Prime, Alexa and our family of Echo devices, award-winning entertainment, and exclusive Amazon products.

We strive to be Earth’s best employer and use our Leadership Principles to guide and monitor our efforts to build inclusive teams. We also make our positions on certain issues publicly available to customers, investors, policymakers, employees, and others. As we continue to learn and iterate, we improve inclusion internally through educational programming, mentorship, and benefits for all of our employees.  We’re in this together—reaching across cultures—creating global tech innovations that unite us in new and exciting ways. Amazon creates inclusive technology that connects our diverse world, disrupting the status quo of how we learn, shop, communicate, work, and live.
