Amazon is looking to hire more than 200 virtual employees for full-time work in the US. The Seattle based company which still has not officially chosen its second headquarters in the US has some 575,000 full-time and part-time employees as of June 30. 

A quick look on its Amazon Jobs site reveals 237 "virtual" or "work-from-home" positions – all but two are full-time – available across the US and in other sites including the U.K., Germany and Costa Rica.

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.

As far as India is concerned, in June, Amazon India announced that it will hire close to 2,000 contract positions for its new fulfillment center located in Attibele in Bengaluru.
