Military Talent Recruiting… WE WANT YOU! Many military veterans are excelling in a variety of careers across Amazon, as we value veterans and the unique experiences and capabilities they bring to the table. “We actively seek leaders who can invent, think big, have a bias for action, and deliver results on behalf of our customers,” says CEO Jeff Bezos, alluding to Amazon’s leadership principles. “These principles look very familiar to men and women who have served our country in the armed forces, and we find that their experience leading people is invaluable in our fast-paced work environment.” We want you to help share and shape our mission to be Earth’s most customer-centric company. Amazon’s evolution from website to e-commerce partner to development platform is driven by the spirit of invention that is part of Amazon’s DNA. It’s what we do, every day – and the good news is that we’ve only just begun. So, what’s next? Join us, and you’ll not only see the future, you’ll create it.

Why It's a Good Fit for Veterans

We actively recruit U.S. military veterans, but also work hard to provide several programs that help them transition more easily into the civilian work force once they’re working within the company. Once they’re on board, every veteran is connected with our vast network of military veterans to receive mentoring and support.

Amazon strives to be Earth’s most customer-centric company, and to get there, we need exceptionally talented and innovative leaders that can drive change and deliver results. We value the leadership skills and technical expertise that military veterans bring to our organization – they know how to take care of people and be mission-focused.
