Who are they?

Amazon est l’entreprise la plus orientée client au monde et est guidée par quatre principes :

  • l’obsession client plutôt que l’attention portée à la concurrence,
  • la passion pour l’invention,
  • l’engagement en faveur de l’excellence opérationnelle,
  • la réflexion à long terme.

Les commentaires en ligne, la commande en 1 clic, les recommandations personnalisées, les programmes Amazon Prime et « Expédié par Amazon », AWS, Kindle Direct Publishing, Kindle, les tablettes Fire, Fire TV, Amazon Echo et Alexa comptent parmi les produits et services initiés par Amazon.

Leurs collaborateurs sont animés et motivés par l’innovation dans les nouvelles technologies, la création de nouveaux produits et par le fait d’offrir aux clients des services qui leur facilitent la vie.

Ils sont ouverts à faire les choses différemment, à prendre des décisions rapidement et ils n’ont pas peur de l’échec. En résumé, Amazon a l’assise d’une grande entreprise et l’état d’esprit d’une “start-up”!
