Amazon planning to launch education program in India

Amazon is in plans to launch its childhood-to-career programme Future Engineer in India, a job posting tips. Debuting in the US in January last year, the initiative is aimed to fund computer science classes to help students learn coding and computers.

Amazon is currently hiring for a manager to lead the Amazon Future Engineer programme in India. The latest move comes nearly a year after CEO Jeff Bezos visited the country and announced the company’s investment of $1 billion (roughly Rs. 7,319 crores) in the country to digitise small and medium business in the country.

The first job post published by TechCrunch indicates that Amazon plans to launch the Future Engineers program in India by 2021.
“Preliminary research is underway for Amazon Future Engineers in India and we are looking at selected candidates to implement this program relevant to India and student needs,” the agency said in its post.

Although the place of work will be Amazon’s India headquarters in Bangalore, the program is likely to be broadcast live across the country.
