DESCRIPTION

Our overall mission is simple: we want Amazon to be the place where our customers can find, discover and buy anything online. Whatever our customers want, we will find the means to deliver it. With your help, Amazon will continue to enable people to discover new worlds and implement innovation.

We make sure Amazon gets value for money every time it buys non-inventory goods and services for its Fulfillment Centers (FCs) and corporate business. It’s a fast-paced operation that supports growth and change, works with every department and is driven by Key Performance Indicators – and there’s plenty of healthy competition. We work individually and as part of teams, meeting regularly to cement our relationships and approach.
