Supporting and celebrating female tech talent has always been key to Amazon’s success, so we were delighted to receive Women in Tech’s Tech Employer of the Year 2019 Award in recognition of our commitment to gender diversity.

That commitment takes many forms, from Amazon Amplify to our work with the WISE Campaign, which encourages women and girls to pursue technical careers and qualifications.

This year’s award is a testament to the hard work, dedication and innovation of our female tech specialists across all areas of our business and gave us a perfect opportunity to catch up with five of them.

We asked about their careers to date, challenges and opportunities at Amazon and their hopes for the future of women in tech.
