Amazon Future Engineer Internship
After finishing their first year of college, Amazon Future Engineer award winners are guaranteed a compensated 12-week summer internship with Amazon. AFE interns work on a software engineering team at Amazon and collaborate with a co-intern, manager, and mentors to create projects that have a significant effect on Amazon consumers.
Interns work on some of Amazon’s most innovative technologies and systems, including Alexa speech technology, Amazon Web Services, and the Amazon retail platform.
Most interns send production-level code to Amazon at the end of the summer!
Aside from project work, Amazon Future Engineer interns get insight into the company via fireside discussions with top executives, deep dives from technical teams, and an annual Alexa skills-building hackathon.
Interns form ties with their fellow intern cohort through working on project work and attending social events – so if you join them as an AFE intern, you’ll have plenty of other interns from similar backgrounds to share your experience with!
