After his graduation from Harvard Business School, he worked at a company called Danbury Mint as a project manager. He later left the company and decided to start his own company alongside a colleague from Danbury Mint but the company failed.

In 1997, he met Elana Rochelle Caplan, a fashion designer who later became his wife.

He and Bezos launched AWS,  in 2006 with Jassy heading its 57-member team. The idea of starting this subsidiary is credited to Jassy.
