Amazon.com launched in 1995 from a garage just outside of Seattle, growing to more than 45,000 employees at our headquarters in Seattle.
While our approach hasn't changed—we're still guided by customer-obsession, a passion for invention, commitment to operational excellence, and long-term thinking—we've grown a lot over the last 20 years, and we now have dozens of offices in more than 30 countries around the world. We have corporate offices across North America from Santa Monica (home of Amazon Studios) to Brooklyn (home of Amazon Fashion), and from Vancouver B.C. to Mexico City.
Each of our corporate offices have their own unique design, which create environmentally friendly workspaces with a great energy that help inspire collaboration and innovation. You'll see details across our worldwide offices like whiteboards in the elevators, open areas that encourage spontaneous meetings, and unique aspects of our culture like door desks.
