Announcing Amazon Career Day—a series of events across the U.S. where anyone can learn more about the 30,000 full and part-time jobs available at Amazon, from the company’s headquarters and tech hubs to data centers and fulfillment centers – with locations across the country. A sampling of the jobs include entry-level roles at Amazon’s fulfillment centers working with the latest robotics technology, software development engineers helping make Alexa smarter, or computer vision scientists building the technology behind Amazon Go.
The events on September 17th are in Arlington, VA—the site of Amazon’s second headquarters in North America—as well as Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Nashville, and Seattle. To register for an event, visit amazon.jobs/careerday.
“Amazon has created more than 300,000 new jobs in the U.S. over the last decade – and we’re proud to continue investing and creating opportunities for people across the country,” said Jeff Bezos, Amazon founder and CEO. “These are jobs with highly competitive compensation and full-benefits from day one, as well as training opportunities to gain new skills in high-demand fields such as robotics and machine learning.”
Career Day events will feature businesses across Amazon, with recruiters at each event, to speak about corporate roles at our 18 Tech Hubs and headquarters locations, as well as roles within our customer fulfillment, delivery, and retail facilities. Attendees looking to start their own business can get information on how to be your own boss with help from Amazon by selling on Amazon, becoming a Delivery Service Partner, or publishing a book.
Additionally, Amazon is starting to hire for tens of thousands of seasonal roles for its operations network in the coming weeks to meet increased demand for the holiday season. Candidates interested in these positions—also paying $15/hour—can visit amazondelivers.jobs.
