The company is looking for a wide range of talent such as Market manager for devices, Employee relations, Senior regional logistics leader, Cloud computing software development, and Head of business, Latin America Prime Video Direct among others. 

In addition to the perks of working virtually from home, Amazon's work-at-home employees also are eligible for the standard Amazon full-time employee benefits which include health, medical and dental insurance (plus a health savings account), a 401K plan with company match, restricted stock units, maternity and parental leave, adoption assistance, as well as the employee discount on Amazon products and goods sold and shipped by the company.
