Amazon is a com­pany of build­ers. A philo­sophy of own­er­ship car­ries through everything we do — from the pro­pri­et­ary tech­no­lo­gies we cre­ate to the new busi­nesses we launch and grow. You’ll find it in every team across our com­pany; from provid­ing Earth’s biggest selec­tion of products to devel­op­ing ground-break­ing soft­ware and devices that change entire indus­tries, Amazon embraces inven­tion and pro­gress­ive think­ing. Amazon is con­tinu­ally evolving; it’s a place where motiv­ated employ­ees thrive, and own­er­ship and account­ab­il­ity lead to mean­ing­ful res­ults. It’s as simple as this: we pion­eer.

With every order made and par­cel delivered, cus­tomer demand at Amazon is grow­ing. And to meet this demand, and keep our world-class ser­vice run­ning smoothly, we're grow­ing our teams across Europe. Deliv­er­ing hun­dreds of thou­sands of products to hun­dreds of coun­tries world­wide, our Oper­a­tions teams pos­sess a wide range of skills and exper­i­ence and this include soft­ware developers, data engin­eers, oper­a­tions research sci­ent­ists, and more.

About these intern­ships:
Whatever your back­ground, if you love see­ing your devel­op­ments help improve real life, if you have a pas­sion for using tech­no­logy to improve pro­cesses, if you enjoy solv­ing oper­a­tional chal­lenges by cre­at­ing state of the art sys­tems, and if you’re motiv­ated by res­ults and driven enough to achieve them, Amazon is a great place to be. Because it’s only by com­ing up with new ideas and chal­len­ging the status quo that we can con­tinue to be the most cus­tomer-cent­ric com­pany on Earth, we’re all about flex­ib­il­ity: we expect you to adapt to changes quickly and we encour­age you to try new things.
