Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has said, “A brand for a company is like a reputation for a person. You earn reputation by trying to do hard things well.” In addition to being known for selling nearly every item you can think of and delivering it at lightening-fast speed, Amazon has become known for building a workforce like no other company has before.

With over 560,000 employees worldwide, the Seattle-based tech giant has seemingly perfected the art of recruiting roles ranging from warehouse workers to a Director of Software Development for Amazon Machine Learning. From Opa-Locka to Baltimore, part-time to work-from-home, the recruiters at Amazon see it all and have learned how to source from every sector and city in the world.
