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.”
We’re a company of pioneers. It’s our job to make bold bets, and we get our energy from inventing on behalf of customers. Success is measured against the possible, not the probable. For today’s pioneers, that’s exactly why there’s no place on Earth they’d rather build than Amazon.
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 working to develop leaders and shape future talent pools to help us meet the needs of our customers around the world. We seek builders from all backgrounds to join our teams, and we encourage our employees to bring their authentic, original, and best selves to work.
About Our Palo Alto Team
If you have searched for an item to buy on Amazon, you have used our services. We are a team responsible for the discovery and shopping experience for Amazon customers. In the background, we index our catalog of products, deploy highly scalable AWS fleets, and use advanced machine learning to match interesting products to every customer’s query. We provide information, answer questions, and make recommendations to help customers find what they’re looking for, and utilize computer vision solutions, like the Amazon App camera features, so customers can easily shop using images from the world around them. We build augmented reality technology, like Amazon’s AR View feature, so customers can envision products they want to buy within their home.
Our customer experience is made possible by an innovative team of engineers, research and applied scientists, product and program managers, designers, and economists in Amazon offices around the world. Together, we are building the best way for our customers to shop – if you are looking to build products that delight customers and you enjoy scientific, and technical challenges, come join us. You’ll experience the benefits of working in a dynamic, entrepreneurial environment, all while leveraging the resources of the Earth’s most customer-centric company.
“Teams with diverse backgrounds and life experiences excel at creative problem solving. We are

customers.” –Srikanth Thirumalai, Vice President, Amazon Search
