We’re continuing to hear a lot about the “Amazon Force Jobs” initiative, a series of job postings that Amazon is launching this week aimed at getting the best of the world’s best talent in a new role, while also giving them an opportunity to learn new skills and earn extra money through the Amazon marketplace.
While it’s true that Amazon has been testing these jobs in select locations for some time now, it appears as if the job listings have just begun to appear on the platform.
The Amazon Force Job Listings page lists 12 of the company’s top job listings, with some of the listings offering the position of “Chief Information Officer.”
While this is a title that might seem familiar to some, it’s actually a different position from the one that the Amazon employees have been applying for in the past.
“In addition to its ability to provide customers with the best data, Amazon’s Cloud Services platform allows customers to build their own businesses and build a community of trusted users, while empowering them to be creative and drive business,” Amazon said in a statement to Recode.
Here’s a breakdown of the positions listed on the job posting, which is a little more extensive than a regular listing.
Amazon says that this job is part of the “Cloud Services” position, and that the positions are “for a chief information officer position in the AWS business, including AWS, S3, Amazon EMR, and Amazon Cloud Services.”
Amazon also said that these positions are for “the new leader, a leader in Cloud Services who will lead teams to achieve and sustain their business growth.
These roles are focused on developing and deploying the most advanced and scalable Cloud Services platforms, such as Amazon S3 and AWS EMR.”
Amazon has been working to make sure that people who work for the company have the skills they need to work in a variety of different roles, including as a Data Scientist, Business Analyst, Product Designer, or even an Operations Manager.
It has also been working on making sure that its employees can get paid, so they can support their families, while still making a profit.
At the time of this writing, Amazon has not officially announced the “force jobs” job listings.
In the meantime, Recode is keeping a close eye on the “Force Jobs” job postings, and will update this post if we learn more about them.
The post has been updated to reflect a comment by Amazon.
