Amazon is a great place for people who love innovating, building, and inventing on behalf of customers.
With more than 350,000 employees worldwide, Amazon ranks #1 on Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies, #2 in Fortune’s World’s Most Admired Companies, #1 on The Harris Poll’s Corporate Reputation survey, and #2 on LinkedIn’s U.S. most desirable companies list. Amazon was also recently included in the Military Times’ Best for Vets list of companies committed to providing opportunities for military veterans.

Several years ago, we made a conscious choice to invest in downtown Seattle, even though it would’ve been cheaper for us to move our headquarters to the suburbs. We chose to commit to Seattle because we believed it was the right choice for our employees and for the city.
While we continue to grow in Seattle, we also announced in September, 2017 that we are looking for a 2nd Amazon headquarters in North America. To learn more about HQ2, click here.
The Spheres are a place where Amazon employees can think and work differently. They are a result of innovative thinking about the character of the workplace and an extended conversation about what is often missing from urban offices – a direct link to nature. They will contain hundreds of plants from all over the world.
You can visit The Understory, an immersive, 360 degree exhibit, at the base of The Spheres – click here to register.Scroll Down
At Amazon, giving back to the communities where our employees live and work is in our DNA.
In Seattle, we pledged to give Mary’s Place, a nonprofit organization that houses homeless families, permanent shelter space within our newest office building by 2020 – watch the surprise announcement here. Mary’s Place currently uses a former hotel on our campus as one of their downtown Seattle shelters.
We also donated 25,000 sq. ft. of space to FareStart, a nonprofit culinary training and employment placement program that empowers people to find higher paying career opportunities within the food service industry. In this space, they opened five new eateries and expect to double the number of graduates’ lives they transform over the next 10 years.

We are putting our scale and our inventive culture to work on sustainability and protecting the environment. Our packaging innovations like Ships in Own Container and Frustration-Free Packaging eliminated more than 55,000 tons of excess packaging in 2016 alone.
Amazon was the leading corporate purchaser of renewable energy in the United States according to the 2017 State of Green Business report.
We currently purchase energy generated by wind farms located across the country, and plan to deploy solar systems on 50 fulfillment and sortation centers globally by 2020.
The newest buildings on our current campus in Seattle are heated using an innovative energy recycling system that uses the heat generated at a nearby data center to warm up our office space.

In 2000, in an effort to offer unlimited selection to our customers, we invited small businesses and entrepreneurs to sell their products right alongside Amazon on the company’s most valuable real estate – our product detail pages.
