As per the company’s recent financial report, Amazon Web Services (AWS) has been experiencing growth and currently accounts for 14% of the overall revenue.

Since the 2020 debut of Amazon Fresh, a physical store, the corporation has been modifying its approach.

It announced on Tuesday that it would discontinue Just Walk Out, its self-checkout system, from every shop.

The company indicated that several hundred positions in sales, marketing, and worldwide services, as well as a few hundred positions in its physical store technology team, are affected by the most recent job layoffs.

An AWS representative told the BBC that “these decisions are difficult but necessary as we continue to invest, hire, and optimize resources to deliver innovation for our customers.”

There are thousands of jobs available, and the company is striving to create internal possibilities for employees whose functions are affected. The company also stated that “it will continue to hire and grow, especially in core areas of our business.”

Although most AWS jobs are located in Seattle, the company’s home city, Amazon said that it will be making layoffs at its businesses worldwide.
