Amazon

Who we are

Amazon strives to be Earth's most customer-centric company where people can find and discover virtually anything they want to buy online. By giving customers more of what they want - low prices, vast selection, and convenience - Amazon continues to grow and evolve as a world-class e-commerce platform. Amazon's evolution from Web site to e-commerce partner to development platform is driven by the spirit of innovation that is part of the company's DNA. The world's brightest minds come to Amazon to research and develop technology that improves the lives of shoppers and third-party merchants around the world. Amazon’s vision is to offer the earth’s largest selection and lowest prices to our customers.

Over 2MM merchants in 10 countries (and growing) list their products for sale on the Amazon Marketplace. Merchants are a critical part of Amazon’s ecosystem to deliver on our vision of offering the earth’s largest selection and lowest prices.

The Tempe Software Development Center is located on Mill Ave. within walking distance to ASU. We hire for many positions including software development engineers, web development engineers, support engineers, software development managers, associate engineers and research scientists.
