Working at Amazon

Since August 2019, I've been working at Amazon Web Services. Six months in, and it has been a really great experience!

Can I help you get a job at Amazon? Yes, I can! I suggest looking at the roles available at Amazon Jobs. Pick out one or two and then contact me, before you apply. I can help you understand how those jobs fit within the organization. And maybe help you identify other roles which might also be a good (or a better) fit for you. I can refer you internally, if you like, which can help get you in front of the hiring manager. And I can give you tips on the interview process, including the importance of the Amazon Leadership Principles. If things progress well, I can even give you some advice on negotiating your compensation. (Amazon's compensation package is quite different from that at other companies).

There is a ton of opportunity at Amazon. Some people love it, others hate it. I love it :)
