Internship Description:

At Amazon, they are looking for future Amazon interns to join for summer 2021! Their interns and co-ops write real software and partner with a select group of experienced software development engineers, who both help and challenge them as they work on projects that matter to their customers.

In addition to an impactful project, you will have the opportunity to engage with Amazonians in both personal and professional development, expand your network, and take part in fun activities throughout the summer.

No matter the location of your internship, they give you the tools to own your summer and learn in a real world setting.  Many of their technologies overlap—you would be hard pressed to find a team that is not using Amazon Web Services (AWS), touching the catalogue, or iterating services to better personalize for customers.
