Accountant - Global Financial Accounting & Controls At Amazon.com Services, Inc.

Location: Seattle, Washington

Job Description


The Amazonian Culture
Based in Seattle, Amazon is a pioneering, dynamic, and energetic company that thrives on unique and peculiar ways. We take pride in our single-minded obsession over customer satisfaction and our ability to maintain a curious and vibrant culture no matter how large the company grows. We endeavor to build our legacy as Earth’s most customer-centric company and to continue to cultivate and nourish our innovative environment through our mission to hire the best. If you are a financial accounting professional who consistently exceeds expectations, who dares to make bold decisions, and whose ears perk up at the prospect of a challenge, then Amazon is a place where your career can flourish.
When working at Amazon, your ability to make a difference and take ownership of your career begins on day one. You can expect a collaborative, team-driven environment that encourages employees to learn, be curious, and have a bias for action. Part of this propensity for continuous learning shows itself in Amazon’s strong encouragement of rotation within the Accounting department and within the company as a whole. We aim to hire and develop those who will raise the bar over the course of their career at Amazon (and not just in their first position). Given this encouragement for rotation, and given our company’s ever-increasing growth, we are always looking for strong candidates to fill new positions and back-fill existing ones.
Job Description and Responsibilities
The global accounting organization supports Amazon’s financial reporting, internal control, intercompany, and transfer pricing activities as well as global business launches for Amazon’s consumer products, digital initiatives, merchant, operations, logistics, payments, and cloud computing lines of business. Amazon’s accounting group offers opportunities in Legal Entity & Intercompany, Accounting Policy & Reporting, Operations and Capital, Transportation, Payments & Merchant Services, Retail Operations, Digital, and AWS Accounting.

Those who fill similar positions are expected to have a strong sense of ownership, excellent analytic skills and a desire to learn complex processes and systems. Successful candidates also prefer working in a team environment, but also feel comfortable working independently.


  • CPA (or equivalent)
  • Big Four (public) accounting experience as a top performing staff accountant
  • Experience working with a fast-paced, high-tech start-up or similar company
  • Prior exposure to operational accounting concepts of inventory
  • Experience with researching and documenting support for accounting conclusions
  • Natural propensity for organization and an aptitude for information technology
  • Strong interpersonal, written, and oral communication skills
  • Excellent analytical skills
