Amazon sits in the heart of the city, nestled between modern, colorful cityscapes that make downtown Seattle feel inspiring and professional at the same time. This vibe flows inside as well, since the modern aesthetic and rustic workspaces play on the company’s history—the founder’s original desk was cut from his garage door. Open seating pairs well with the fast-paced environment, and an internal committee called Connected Amazon keeps networking opportunities coming.
Amazonian culture is peculiar—but that just means employees are themselves and thrive on individuality. This isn’t limited to people, either—dogs come to work every day, and the Amazon banana stand has come to embody much more than an afternoon snack. Beyond rooftop barbecues and karaoke sing-offs, employees also enjoy Think Big sessions and annual conferences that keep new ideas—and adventures—coming.
