Amazon Web Services Sacks over 500 Staff


Amazon Web Services has eliminated several hundred sales, marketing and tech roles, it said on Wednesday, the latest in a series of job cuts by its parent

The cloud-computing arm of Amazon said the impacted staff include a few hundred each at AWS’ sales, marketing and global services division and the physical stores.

“We’ve identified a few targeted areas of the organization we need to streamline,” an AWS spokesperson said.

According to reports, Amazon has over the past months laid off hundreds of staff in divisions, including its Prime Video Service, healthcare business and Alexa voice assistant unit, as big technology firms extend their massive job cuts over the past two years into 2024.

More than 57,000 workers have been laid off across 229 firms so far this year, according to tracking website Layoffs.

Amazon had laid off more than 27,000 in 2022 and 2023, after the tech industry hired too many people during the pandemic.
