Head offices around the world launched in 1995 from a garage just outside of Seattle. While our approach hasn't changed—we're still guided by customer-obsession, a passion for invention, commitment to operational excellence and long-term thinking—we've grown a lot over the last 20 years, and we now have dozens of offices in more than 30 countries around the world. Here in Europe, we have corporate offices right across the continent.

Our Leadership Principles

Our Leadership Principles aren't just a pretty inspirational wall hanging. These Principles work hard, just like we do. Amazonians use them, every day, whether they're discussing ideas for new projects, deciding on the best solution for a customer's problem, or interviewing candidates. It's just one of the things that makes Amazon peculiar.

Connecting with our customers

Amazon's mission is to be earth's most customer-centric company—and our customer service team is at the forefront of our mission. Whether they're helping customers with on-device tech support through Mayday or fielding our customers—calls, chat instant-messaging or emails, our customer service team is empowered to think like owners and solve problems right the first time.
