Get involved with Amazon’s exciting future in Cork.

AWS growth

For over 13 years, Amazon Web Services (AWS) has been the world’s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform. AWS offers over 165 services for computing, storage, databases, networking, analytics, robotics, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), mobile, security, hybrid, virtual and augmented reality (VR and AR), media, and application development, deployment and management. These services are provided in 69 Availability Zones (AZs) within 22 geographic regions spanning the US, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, India, Ireland, Japan, Korea, Middle East, Singapore, Sweden and the UK.

Millions of customers – including the fastest-growing start-ups, largest enterprises and leading government agencies – trust AWS to power their infrastructure, become more agile and lower cost.

AWS continues to grow at a rapid pace and over the past two and a half years, the AWS EMEA Accounting Team, which is based in Cork, has witnessed this growth first-hand. This growth has presented numerous opportunities for career progression and resulted in a dynamic, diverse and innovative accounting team.


Amazon’s leadership principles empower its people to be owners and innovators and the AWS EMEA Accounting Team lives by these principles. For example, the team has implemented a number of initiatives aimed at reducing manual effort, in line with the ‘invent and simplify’ leadership principle.

The team has also developed programmes in line with the ‘hire and develop the best’ leadership principle, which has resulted in a team of talented, dedicated and detail-oriented accountants. This creates a dynamic environment where everybody has a voice and the status quo is challenged.

The leadership principles foster a culture that encourages people to be the best that they can be and to reach their full potential while having fun.

Diversity and inclusion

Amazon’s mission is to be the most customer-centric company on earth, and this mission is central to the company’s work on diversity and inclusion.

Diverse and inclusive teams have a positive impact on products and services and help Amazon better serve customers, employees and community stakeholders from every background. Amazon’s people are constantly learning and iterating, whether through central programmes or work within business teams, through programmes that are local, regional, and global.

Recent examples of diversity and inclusion initiatives at Amazon’s Cork Campus include Pride Week and Family Fun Day.
