From an Inside the Times story by Terence McGinley headlined “Reporting From Amazon’s Hometown, and Seeing the Company Everywhere”:

Karen Weise is a technology correspondent based in Seattle who has covered Amazon, which is headquartered there, for The Times since 2018. With its e-commerce operation, line of web services and grocery businesses, Amazon maintains a vast reach across American society. The company has been on a hiring spree in recent years, including a large push during the pandemic, which has brought its role as a major U.S. employer into sharper focus.
