The Return to Work program at Amazon is a 16- week paid returnship for experienced professionals returning to the workforce after taking time off. The program is open to candidates who have at least 2 years of professional experience and have been out of the paid workforce for at least 6 months caregiving for kids or loved ones, serving in the military, or time off to find their path. If you meet these criteria, we welcome you to apply.
The Return to Work program inspires technologists to relaunch after taking a break in their career. This platform gives candidates an opportunity to work at Amazon, and provides on-the-job training to sharpen their professional skills while working on real world customer solutions. Participants will get training on SDE tools and technologies and technical mentoring.
