If you want to be hired by Amazon, if you want to have an amazing professional journey there and work on incredibly ambitious and innovative projects (and, as a by-product, earn hundreds of thousands of dollars, maybe a million or more,) then this course is for you.
My name is Nick Dimitrov and "The Essential Course to Prepare for the Amazon Interview" will help you ace your Amazon interview and get full-time employment at Amazon. What makes this course different from anything else you would encounter out there, is my deep knowledge of the Amazon culture. I developed this knowledge during my five-year tenure as an Amazon Principal and my three-year tenure as an Amazon Bar Raiser.
By the end of this course, you will be able to effectively present your professional experience in Amazon's behavioral interview format, and confidently apply Amazon's Leadership Principles when interviewing there. Most importantly, you will accumulate a portfolio with proven practice materials and written responses, all of which are based on the very way Amazon interviews candidates today, and all of which will give you a strong edge in the Amazon interview.
This course features twelve proven hands-on activities to help you perform confidently during the Amazon interview. We will focus exclusively on Amazon's practices, but our assignments will also help you interview well at other tech companies.
"The Essential Course to Prepare for the Amazon Interview is a very helpful course. Great content, well organized, and helpful insights. The assignments are lengthy but worthwhile to do and the quizzes are good summaries of each section. The instructor provides feedback on all assignments and engages each student personally. Highly recommended for anyone looking to interview with Amazon."

Hi! I’m Nick.
In 2013, I joined Amazon and co-founded Amazon Game Studios in a series of direct pitches to Amazon’s CEO, Jeff Bezos. Amazon has since invested more than one billion dollars in the gaming space, by acquiring the game-streaming platform Twitch, developing its own 3D game engine (called Lumberyard,) and building top-budget games in its internal studios.
I also became an Amazon Bar Raiser, one of that small number of Amazonians who decide whether the company should hire a job candidate or not. In my three-year tenure as a Bar Raiser, I interviewed more than 350 job applicants and determined whether they raised the Amazon hiring bar.
In 2018, I left Amazon and $1M+ in deferred stock compensation to start a new company: Amazon Bound, to help prepare job applicants to interview effectively with Amazon.
Building anything worthwhile from scratch is scary but is also exciting and formative.
The future is now. This is the time to be a dragon.
