Amazon is a company of builders. A philosophy of ownership carries through everything we do - from the proprietary technologies we create to the new businesses we launch and grow.

Amazon is continually evolving; it's a place where motivated employees thrive, and ownership and accountability lead to meaningful results. It's as simple as this: we pioneer.

With every order made and parcel delivered, customer demand at Amazon is growing. And to meet this demand, and keep our world-class service running smoothly, we're growing our Operations team across Europe. We are seeking savvy, motivated Finance Interns to join our available roles in the following teams: Finance, Planning & Analysis (FP&A), Finance & Controlling, Operations Finance, Transportation Finance, or Infrastructure Finance.

About this Internship

Our Finance teams are currently looking for highly analytical, technical, creative and forward-thinking interns. An Amazon EU internship will provide you with an unforgettable experience in a fast-paced, dynamic and international environment; it will boost your resume and will provide a superb introduction to finance and data analysis within the operational business.

Together with the team you join, you'll help analyse the overall performance and throughput of one segment of our world-class supply chain. You will then help recommend potential changes and improvements that can be made: this is all part of our culture of continuous improvement.

You will have the chance to put your analytical and technical skills to the test; you'll assist with gathering massive amounts of data and finding out the exact trend that can be acted upon to reduce cost and/or improve efficiency. You will be involved in reporting, forecasting and building KPI dashboards that will support an entire business unit in their decision-making process. You will gain invaluable first-hand experience in improving accuracy alongside automating tools and processes.
