Consumer Veteran Business Leader Pipeline, Transitioning Directly from Service
- Seattle, WA
Amazon is excited to offer military veterans and military spouses the opportunity to launch into big careers with limitless possibilities. We know searching for a full-time role after years of military service is as much about finding a company where you can picture yourself being successful, as it is about finding the right role.
Who qualifies for the Consumer Veteran Business Leader Pipeline?
Active duty military, reservist, and military spouses with an expected military termination date of 6-months or less on day of application (e.g. candidates with military termination date of 12/1 can apply starting 6/1) and meet the basic qualifications below.
What types of jobs are available?
Qualified candidates are matched to and interview for full-time roles across the Consumer Division based on a combination of the following: candidate career interests, military work experience, education, and any applicable industry experience.
Though some candidates will be considered for senior-level people manager roles, candidates with no eCommerce or sales experience will enter Amazon as an individual contributor (IC). Individual contributors own and drive the growth of their business, accounts, categories, programs, and/or technical products. Entering Amazon as an IC is normal, even for candidates with people management and 10+ years of direct industry experience. The level of role a candidate is matched to (entry-, mid-, senior-) is commensurate upon a combination of education and military experience.
Example roles include but are not limited to: Vendor Manager, Instock Manager, Product Manager, Program Manager, Account Rep, Account Manager
