Job Description

Amazon is solving some of the world's toughest problems, and we are customer (and candidate obsessed) when it comes to scaling the hiring process for one of the planet’s largest workforces. We are asking questions like: How do we hire the right number of associates at the right time? How do we handle hundreds of thousands, or even millions of applications, while ensuring the job search process is friction-free for applicants? How do we match the right job to right associate while providing flexibility to work across different job types and time of the day?
