Early Insights

Amazon Early Insights is a three-day program that provides women in their early years of undergraduate study with the opportunity to attend talks and workshops delivered by Amazon Software Engineers.

Students will hear from experts working on projects that benefit Amazon customers around the world with the eventual aim of participating in a two-day hackathon. This is a unique chance to collaborate with Amazon employees and fellow participants to create something new.

This is the perfect opportunity to find out more about Amazon, get unrivalled access to Amazon’s engineers and inventors and most importantly, develop your software engineering skills! You will be able to build your contacts by meeting both Amazon employees and other like-minded students currently studying similar courses to you.

This year, Amazon Early Insights will be held in two locations, Edinburgh & London! Please click on the links below to apply. Applications for 2020 are open until Sunday 15th March.

The Early Insights program originated in 2017 and aims to increase gender diversity in technology by enabling female engineering students in their early years of study to develop a network of women in technology, learn about Amazon’s business and determine if they would be interested in a career in technology. Applications for employment with Amazon are considered equally on their merits regardless of gender.
