Sales Operations Business Partner

Description

Over the past 20 years, Amazon has invented on behalf of the consumer and become the largest internet retailer and marketplace in the world. Amazon is now reinventing on behalf of the business customer and focused on building the largest and most innovative Business-to-Business (B2B) marketplace in the world, and we are recruiting to make this vision a reality.

Amazon Business represents an incredible opportunity to address a vast new market segment and customer base and is an area of high interest for Amazon. We are a new business, building a new team, and behaving like a fast-growing start-up.

Our customers include individual professionals, small businesses, and large institutions such as schools, governments, and corporations (and everything in between).
