To celebrate Amazon’s expansion in the Minneapolis community, Amazon is donating $10,000 plus mentoring support to local nonprofit Code Savvy to help the group’s mission of encouraging youth’s understanding of coding and promoting diversity in the technology industry.

Amazon currently has hundreds of employees in Minnesota and is in the process of hiring an additional 1,000 full-time employees for its new Shakopee, Minnesota, fulfillment center.

The Minneapolis office will include multiple roles like software development engineers and managers who will be tasked with developing and innovating technology solutions that enhance Amazon’s operations.

Amazon employees receive comprehensive benefits, including healthcare, 401(k) and company stock awards, starting on day one, as well as generous maternity and parental leave benefits.

As part of the company’s expansion in Minneapolis and its commitment to the local community, Amazon will be donating $10,000 to Code Savvy to fund the nonprofit’s Technovation[MN] program.

The program focuses on technology entrepreneurship led by girls that helps participants build problem-solving apps and create business plans. Amazon employees at the new office will also be offering mentoring support to Code Savvy.
