Amazon.com launched in 1995 from a garage just outside of Seattle. While our approach hasn't changed—we're still guided by customer-obsession, a passion for invention, commitment to operational excellence and long-term thinking—we've grown a lot over the last 20 years, and we now have dozens of offices in more than 30 countries around the world. In Europe, we have corporate offices right across the continent.
Each of our corporate offices have their own unique design, which create environmentally friendly work spaces with a great energy that help inspire collaboration and innovation. You'll see details across our worldwide offices like whiteboards in the elevators, open areas that encourage spontaneous meetings, and unique aspects of our culture like door desks.
