Fully Remote Jobs at Amazon You Can Apply for in January

Amazon is opening its (virtual) doors to remote workers. Here are some exciting positions you can apply for right now.

As is the case with many tech companies, Amazon's relationship with remote work is complex. After taking a liberal stance on home working since 2020, the ecommerce behemoth rolled out a return-to-office policy last year, and has since threatened to fire workers who don't comply.

However, the Seattle-based company is also currently hiring for dozens of fully remote positions, making 2024 an opportune time for remote workers to seize the perks of working for Amazon – without having to brace the morning commute.

For those considering applying at Amazon this month, we've rounded up some openings that are currently up for grabs. We also shed light on what it's like to work at Amazon, and how it compares to the experience working for its big tech rivals.

Is Working at Amazon Right For You?

While Amazon has hit headlines recently for laying off another round of workers – this time from its live streaming site Twitch – there are still tons of reasons to apply for a job at the company.

Amazon offers a number of attractive benefits to its employees, including free mental heath care, partial tuition fee coverage, and private medical insurance after one full year of employment. Being the most popular online retailer in the US, Amazon's name recognition is also second to none, making a corporate role a great CV booster and gateway to highly esteemed positions at other tech companies.

Plus, if you did want to work in person for a change of scenery, Amazon offers one of the most impressive offices in the world, with its Seattle-based headquarters housing a massive indoor rainforest, a wide selection of trendy co-working spaces, and an array of independent vendors.

Working at Amazon definitely won't be everyone's cup of tea, however. If its history of quelling worker-led unions and blocking promotions for white-collar employees who don't comply with its RTO policy is anything to go by, its working conditions appear stricter than those at fellow tech giants Google and Microsoft. Amazon's attrition rate is famously high too, with many former corporate workers citing burnout and hard-hitting workplace culture as reasons for quitting before their first three months were up.

While Amazon recently upped its corporate pay cap from $160,000 to $350,000 in 2022, wages at the company still lag behind many Silicon Vally firms, with the average software engineer at Amazon taking in $95,016, compared to $164,249 at Google, according to salary and company review site Glassdoor.

The Job Pool Isn't Short of Remote Opportunities

If you're intent on working from home, but can't find a suitable position at Amazon, don't stress. As demand for the flexible perk continues to climb higher, the internet is awash with exciting, fully remote opportunities.

Whether you work in sales analytics or comms, check out our round-up of the best remote opportunities to apply to in January here. Or, if securing a big name on your CV is important to you, you can take a look at some great opportunities being advertised at Apple and Microsoft too.
