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 Oper­a­tions team 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 includes busi­ness ana­lysts in all func­tions.

About this intern­ship:
Whatever your back­ground, if you love call for tenders and nego­ti­ation with sup­pli­ers, if you have a pas­sion for report­ing, fore­cast­ing and build­ing KPI dash­boards that will sup­port the busi­ness in optim­iz­ing their con­sum­able orders and con­sump­tion, if you like cre­at­ing easy to fol­low pro­cesses and train­ing your busi­ness part­ners, Amazon and the pro­cure­ment team are 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 quickly to all the changes around you, and we encour­age you to try new things.

Amazon is look­ing for ambi­tious and enthu­si­astic stu­dents to join our unique world as interns.
