Our Global Offices

Our Global Offices

Amazon.com 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. In North America, we have corporate offices the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

Each of our corporate offices have their own unique design, which create environmentally friendly workspaces with a great energy that help inspire collaboration and innovation. You'll see details across our worldwide offices like whiteboards in the elevators, open areas that encourage spontaneous meetings, and unique aspects of our culture like door desks.

Highlights

We now have more than 40,000 people at our headquarters in Seattle.

We have corporate offices across North America from Santa Monica (home of Amazon Studios) to Brooklyn (home of Amazon Fashion), and from Vancouver B.C. to Mexico City.

We have more than 150,000 employees around the world, but most of our teams are very small and each one operates much like a start-up.
