As per several reports, Amazon is planning to launch its childhood-to-career program ‘Future Engineer’ in India. Having first launched in the US in January last year, Amazon Future Engineer is a comprehensive childhood-to-career program aimed at increasing access to computer science education for children and young adults from underserved and underrepresented communities. The initiative funds computer science classes to assist students in learning coding.

The job posting that was first reported by TechCrunch indicates that the global giant is currently looking for a manager to lead the Amazon Future Engineer program in India.
