If you’re currently on the lookout for a new gig, Amazon has some good news. The company is hiring for over 1,100 full-time, work-from-home job opportunities spanning different departments such as software development, art direction, marketing, editorial, web services, and transportation logistics. While the roles do require you to live near an Amazon office, there are also more than 300 positions that are country-wide.

According to Amazon’s VP of HR John Olsen, all employees who work over 20 hours a week are eligible for benefits like health and dental insurance, a 401k plan, parental leave, and of course, special discounts.  

There’s also the option to enroll in the company’s Career Choice program, which “pre-pays 95 percent of tuition for courses related to in-demand fields, regardless of whether the skills are relevant to a future career at Amazon,” Olsen told Business Insider.

In addition to increasing remote hiring, Amazon has responded to the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic by continuing to pay more than 10,000 hourly workers, as well as offering extra paid time to employees who get sick from the virus.

“This isn’t business as usual,” CEO Jeff Bezos said in a statement on March 21, announcing that they have prioritized the delivery of household essentials (toilet paper among those, hopefully) in these trying times. “There is no instruction manual for how to feel at a time like this, and I know this causes stress for everyone.”
