Amazon's Cambridge and Boston offices hosted their first ever Bring Your Kids to Work Day events, this August. Including activities and events for over 300 Amazonians and their kids, the days brought laughter, learning and peculiar activities for parents and children alike.
Today, Amazon’s Toronto office held a grand opening of our corporate office, showcasing our space, teams, and leadership for the first time. Since moving to Toronto two years ago, we've focused on scaling and hiring locally. We now have over 600 local corporate employees from teams including Alexa, Amazon Web Services, Amazon Media Group businesses and more.
Although Earth Day just passed, here at Amazon we celebrated early when we brought students and teachers from the Washington Environmental and Adventure School to tour our Greenhouses in Woodinville, WA.
At Amazon, we pride ourselves on our peculiarities – and this of course extends to our pets. We are known for having pooch-friendly offices at our Seattle Headquarters, but today, on ‘Love Your Pet Day,’ we wanted to extend the love to our feathered, scaled, hoofed, and shelled friends. Meet just a small selection of the peculiar pets Amazonians call family, in celebration of today.
A few years ago we launched our Fulfillment Center Tours in six different centers across the country. Since then, we have had thousands of customers take tours to experience the magic that happens after you click “buy” on Amazon.
