When Amazon.com launched in 1995, it was with the mission “to be Earth’s most customer-centric company, where customers can find and discover anything they might want to buy online, and endeavors to offer its customers the lowest possible prices.” This goal continues today, but Amazon’s customers are worldwide now, and have grown to include millions of Consumers, Sellers, Content Creators, and Developers & Enterprises. Each of these groups has different needs, and we always work to meet those needs, innovating new solutions to make things easier, faster, better, and more cost-effective.
We are a company of builders who bring varying backgrounds, ideas, and points of view to inventing on behalf of our customers. Our diverse perspectives come from many sources including gender, race, age, national origin, sexual orientation, culture, education, as well as professional and life experience. We are committed to diversity and inclusion and always look for ways to scale our impact as we grow.
Amazonians are required to build their own path by owning their development, their career, and their future. The possibilities they explore, the opportunities they take advantage of, and the impact they have is driven by their ideas and initiative. In other words, your experience and trajectory at Amazon is in your hands.
Come build the future with us.
About Operations and Consumer Finance:
Our Finance teams don’t just provide data, but own strategy, drive development, and influence their business partners. This requires strong finance acumen and use of quantitative analysis to create new processes. Backgrounds in finance, supply chain, logistics and manufacturing help our leaders guide the Operations business in creating fiscally responsible policies and ultimately transferring the cost savings to our customers.
Helping our stakeholders identify and drive savings is our key area of focus. That includes planning and forecasting operating costs and capital expenditure, reporting actual figures and analyzing variations to our plan. We also get involved with new initiatives, assessing their financial impacts from the word go. Project work takes a lot of our attention too. We often set up new finance processes to track spend, or get involved in costing expansion plans and new site planning. It’s varied, challenging, and impactful work that involves us in all areas of finance at site level and across the wider Amazon Operations functions.
“At Amazon, we are continually looking for ways to further strengthen our culture of inclusion and diversify our workforce. That means identifying and hiring the best people from all backgrounds. Our return to work program with Path Forward is another way we are welcoming diverse perspectives and experiences into our company.” – Nihal de Souza, Finance Director within Amazon’s Operations and Consumer Finance division
