Pioneering

Pioneering: A Passion for Inventing

Amazon's evolution from online bookstore to device manufacturer, publishing platform, global marketplace, fulfillment network and cloud computing provider is driven by our passion for pioneering and inventing on customers' behalf. The world's best inventors come to Amazon to build new technologies and platforms that improve the lives of customers: consumers, sellers, content creators, and developers around the world.

It's still very much "Day 1" at Amazon—we're a large and growing company, but we're inventing new things every day and we value and encourage innovation at all levels of the company. While we have more than 183,000 employees around the world, most of our teams are very small and each one operates much like a start-up, which means all team members are given opportunities to take on big challenges and make a difference for our customers.

We wake up in the morning thinking about how we can improve our customers' experiences, and you see that in the innovations we've pioneered—from Kindle to Amazon Web Services (AWS) to Prime to Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA).
