Amazon Lab126's inventive small teams and agile processes run like a startup. However, Amazon Lab126 also has the resources of a larger, more established company, which means employees can focus on career development without sacrificing access to mentors or compromising on their project execution speed.
Amazon Lab126 started as a subsidiary of Amazon.com in 2004, and is the research and development arm of the Amazon Devices Team. Amazon Lab126 has produced hardware and software for devices like Kindle, Fire tablets, and Amazon Echo. Pushing the boundaries of technology and dreaming up new-to-market products isn’t solely tech-based, since customer happiness and usability continue to top the company’s priority list with each new invention.
“We're customer-obsessed. We start with customers and what's best for them and then reverse-engineer ideas to satisfy those needs.”
