That can be described in one of our core Leadership Principles, which is Bias for Action. This means that our teams band together, roll up their sleeves, and aren't content with just standing still. We're aiming to become the most customer-centric company on Earth.
As we continue to grow, we are keen to speak to experienced operators. These fast-moving facilities sit at the heart of Amazon's rapidly growing Operations network, and are where we manage our fast-moving parcels.
