    Job title: Web Development Internship – Within Amazon EU Learning & Development Team

    Duration: 6 months internship

    About us:
    Amazon is a company of builders. A philosophy of ownership carries through everything we do — from the proprietary technologies we create to the new businesses we launch and grow. You’ll find it in every team across our company; from providing Earth’s biggest selection of products to developing ground-breaking software and devices that change entire industries, Amazon embraces invention and progressive thinking. Amazon is continually evolving; it’s a place where motivated employees thrive, and ownership and accountability lead to meaningful results. It’s as simple as this: we pioneer.

    With every order made and parcel delivered, customer demand at Amazon is growing. And to meet this demand, and keep our world-class service running smoothly, we're growing our teams across Europe. Delivering hundreds of thousands of products to hundreds of countries worldwide, our Operations teams possess a wide range of skills and experience and this include software developers, data engineers, operations research scientists, and more.

    About these internships:
    Whatever your background, if you love seeing developing efficient web solutions supporting complex and varied data sources and architecures, if you have a passion for using technology to improve processes, if you enjoy solving operational challenges by creating state of the web tools and pages, and if you’re motivated by results and driven enough to achieve them, Amazon is a great place to be. Because it’s only by coming up with new ideas and challenging the status quo that we can continue to be the most customer-centric company on Earth, we’re all about flexibility: we expect you to adapt to changes quickly and we encourage you to try new things. Expect to discover how cross-functional teams operate and who their internal customers are - at all levels of the organization.

    Amazon is looking for ambitious and enthusiastic students to join our unique world as interns. An Amazon EU internship will provide you with an unforgettable experience in a fast-paced, dynamic and international environment; it will boost your resume and will provide a superb introduction to our activities.

    Here you will join our European Learning & Development team to work with them on web development projects.

    You will put your analytical and technical skills to the test and roll up your sleeves to complete a project that will contribute to improve the functionality and level of service that teams provides to their customers. This could include:
    • Participating in designing and developing robust and easy to use web-based tools and web pages enabling users to view and drill down into metrics and KPIs.
    • Taking part in distributing and maintaining business metrics in EU Operations Learning.
    • Proposing ideas, participating in designing, implementing and testing solutions to help the business while respecting Amazon and the team’s standards.
    • Supporting the production of relevant technical documentation (software, user guides).
    • Meeting with the customers to learn about their needs and evaluate the proposed/implemented solution.

    Basic Qualifications

    We want to hire the world’s brightest minds, and offer them an environment in which they can learn and help improve the experience for our customers.
    • You are currently working towards a 2+ years university degree in computer science or a related field.
    • Excellent written and verbal communication skills in English.
    • You must have the right to work in the country you are applying for.
    • Computer Science fundamentals in object-oriented design, data structures, algorithm design, problem solving, and complexity analysis.
    • Familiar with one or more DBMS (MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, RedShift…)
    • Familiar with two or more programming languages (Ruby on Rails, Java, C#, C++, Python...).
    • You are results-driven with analytical skills and the ability to innovate and simplify current processes and practices.
    • You should have strong decision making skills, that use sound reasoning and when required use consultation to achieve consensus.
    • The personal drive and enthusiasm that makes you stand out from the crowd!

    Preferred Qualifications

    • Ability to work successfully in an ambiguous environment, to meet tight deadlines and prioritize workload even when faced with conflicting priorities.
    • Previous work experience – a summer job, internship or full- time role; if it’s an experience in designing optimization models for inventory, network flows and other characteristics of supply-chain systems (e.g., staff scheduling, vehicle routing, and facility location), accompanied by associated expertise in the use of tools and the latest technology or software development, even better.

    Amazon is an equal opportunities employer. We believe passionately that employing a diverse workforce is central to our success. We make recruiting decision based on your experience and skills. We value your passion to discover, invent, simplify and build. We welcome applications from all members of society irrespective of age, sex, disability, sexual orientation, race, religion or belief.
