What is the Amazon Future Engineer internship like?
Besides their project work, Amazon Future Engineer interns get exposure to the Amazon business through fireside chats with senior leaders, deep dives from technology teams, and an annual Alexa skills-building hackathon. Interns build bonds with their fellow intern cohort by collaborating on their project work and through social events - so if you join us as an AFE intern, you’ll have lots of fellow interns from a similar background to go through this experience with you!
