Why Work at the Company?

At Amazon, we're guided by our Leadership Principles. They're ingrained in how we work – we use them when we're talking through a new project, interviewing a prospective hire or solving a customer's problem. And so many of our Leadership Principles closely align to what makes people successful in the military. While we might say 'take ownership' and have 'bias for action' at Amazon, in the military the corollary is 'ensure mission critical work gets done.' Amazonians try to be 'right, a lot' and 'deliver results,' the same way we regularly had to quickly make the right decisions and come up with field expedient solutions while serving our country.
