Creating high-quality jobs is fundamental to delighting our customers.

From employees in our HQs to our fulfillment centers, we’re always looking for passionate, customer-obsessed people to help us innovate. We are now the second largest private employer in the U.S., and the fastest growing. Over the past decade, no other U.S.-based company has created more jobs than Amazon, and we continue to hire.

Amazon is investing in American jobs, workers, and communities

We invest billions of dollars to support Amazon teams and serve our customers, which also helps grow the economy and create jobs in many different sectors.
