Since its found­a­tion in 1994, Amazon has focused on its cus­tom­ers. We want to sim­plify their lives, we want to con­trib­ute to their suc­cess, and we want to provide them with state-of-the-art infra­struc­tures. Many of them are already excited users: cus­tom­ers who shop with us; com­pan­ies selling on Amazon Mar­ket­place or using our cloud ser­vices; start-ups that make their brand-new inven­tions avail­able to mil­lions of cus­tom­ers; authors who pub­lish e-books without hurdles, and film­makers who reach their view­ers. Thanks to our infra­struc­ture, our part­ners can focus on what mat­ters to them: their products, their con­tent, their innov­a­tions – and on cre­at­ing new jobs in Ger­many.

Amazon star­ted its Ger­man busi­ness in 1998. Mean­while, a large num­ber of teams work in a wide vari­ety of areas in Ger­many. No name but a few: The retail teams are respons­ible for the expan­sion of the product range on the Amazon web­site and con­tinu­ously ensure the optimal stock. The latest tech­no­lo­gies are developed in sev­eral devel­op­ment cen­ters. For example, machine learn­ing research­ers work in close cooper­a­tion with local sci­entific insti­tu­tions on the fur­ther devel­op­ment of arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence. Amazon Web Ser­vices con­nects with cus­tom­ers, from star­tups to large enter­prises, to sup­port them with cloud solu­tions and the expert­ise of AWS experts. Other teams are devel­op­ing lan­guage tech­no­lo­gies for Alexa and new devices and soft­ware for Fire TV and other Amazon products.
