Without Amazon Web Services, Amazon would have suffered a $1.8 billion operating loss in the fourth quarter of 2021.

AWS’s operating income of $5.3 billion is included in the total. When those cloud operating profits are subtracted from the whole, the rest of Amazon effectively posted an operating loss of $1.8 billion.

The figures demonstrate once again what a financial behemoth AWS has become. AWS’s total revenue was $17.8 billion, a 40% increase. The AWS operating profit of $5.3 billion was up 49% from the same quarter last year.

Amazon’s chief financial officer, Brian Olsavsky, told analysts that the AWS growth was due to various factors, including increased demand.

Amazon’s senior management team, or S Team for short, sets goals and strategy, shapes company culture, and resolves crises. It expanded in late 2019 and now includes 22 people, including Jeff Bezos, though not all of them report to Amazon’s founder and CEO. Click on the attributes below to sort Team S members by age, tenure at Amazon (the average for the group is just under 16 years), and gender, and display additional biographical information such as title and education. Undergraduate universities and majors are listed, followed by graduate institutions and other degrees.

Amazon CEO adds 4 ‘S-team’ members, including VP of diversity, after losing key executives.

That number dropped to 23 thanks to significant C-suite and Amazon Web Services departures. With the impending release of Jeff Blackburn, another long-time manager, the S-team appeared to be down to 22.

But now vice presidents Steve Boom, Candi Castleberry, Udit Madan and Rob Williams will join the roster, Jassy told employees in an internal memo.

Amazon Go is finally launched: The sensor-filled store opens to the public on Monday, with no queues at the checkout.

The company says the tracking is accurate enough to distinguish between multiple people standing next to each other at a shelf and see which one took a yoghurt or cupcake, for example, and which one was browsing. The system also knows when people pick up items and put them back, ensuring Amazon doesn’t add milk or fries to someone’s bill when they want to read the label.


The goal is to “push the boundaries of computer vision and machine learning” and create an “effortless customer experience,” Dilip Kumar, Amazon Go’s vice president of technology, told GeekWire after walking through the store last week. Let me know your feedback.
