Amazon Flex delights customers by delivering millions of packages faster than ever before. We are expanding our service rapidly to new geographies and products from groceries to big-screen TVs in an increasingly complex network. We recently launched the ability to have Amazon products delivered to customers within the same day, purely through Flex drivers. With Amazon Flex, individuals can now be their own boss, delivering ultra-fast, sub same day orders. In the past two years, Flex has grown from delivering only Prime Now orders to additionally delivering orders from Whole Foods, Amazon.com orders and expanded to 3 new continents, increasing the scale of business by orders of magnitude. While this group continues to expand, the tech systems of this group have evolved into reusable architectures operating at hyper scale (while maintaining agility and being nimble to change) that can cater to the anticipated growth of this business over the next few years. While the needs can be short term, the group focusses on building product and designing tech systems for the long term.
