Amazon's mission is to be ‘Earth's most customer-centric company', and our award-winning Customer Service team is an essential part of that mission. Through our innovative world-class self-service technologies developed by our “CS” team, we support customers from 75+ service locations around the globe. We consider each contact an opportunity to advocate for customers and provide support via phone, email and chat 24/7. Our CS technology and product teams build world-class CRM systems and innovative self-service solutions that are used by millions of customers each day on Amazon's websites, shopping apps, and through Amazon's family of digital products such as Kindle, Echo, and Alexa.
