Whether you’re graduating with an undergraduate degree, Masters degree, MBA or PhD, Amazon teams have positions available globally. While we have internships throughout the year, the majority of our technical internships take place in the summer and last between 12 to 16 weeks. Internships are a great way to immerse yourself in Amazon’s culture to see if we’re a good fit for you and your career goals.
Amazon interns play an important role in building the future for our customers. The possibilities you’ll explore and the impact you’ll have are driven by your ideas and initiative. You will chart your own path and own your development, career, and future. In other words, your experience and trajectory at Amazon is in your hands.
To help us identify future Amazonians, we visit many campuses throughout the year. If you do not see us at your campus, you can apply for our open roles anytime and check in with us on our Twitch.tv channel. Our teams recruit at different times of the year, and hiring timelines can vary by Amazon team, location, and role type.
Life as an Amazon intern

Our interns have been involved in projects like writing customer-facing content on the Echo devices, launching Prime pricing, creating real-time feedback systems for our hourly employees, identifying and implementing ways to improve our fulfillment process, and building new features on amazon.com. Intern projects can range from working on products for customers to creating behind the scenes unreleased features, and span roles in software development, retail, product management, and finance.
