Amazon is suing a former Amazon Web Services employee for accepting a new job at Google. Zoltan Szabadi was a strategic partnerships manager at Amazon Web Services.

According to a published document, Szabadi has accepted a new job at Google Cloud Platform. Now Amazon is suing Szabadi for violating the terms of a non-compete agreement he signed at Amazon.

At Amazon, Szabadi was responsible for developing Amazon's relationship with key partners for its cloud computing services.

Amazon said that Szabadi promised to follow non-competition and non-disclosure restrictions. The restrictions, Amazon added, are intended to protect Amazon's trade secrets and other confidential information.

Szabadi joined Google in May this year. When Amazon heard Szabadi's new job at Google, the company reminded him about his obligations.

Szabadi argued that his new position isn't violating anything because he signed an agreement with Google that restricts him from participating in sales and marketing with previous partners at Amazon, for six months.

Amazon is now asking the court to restrain Szabadi from working at Google.

The case will be closely monitored in the tech industry because companies are now requiring employees to sign non-compete agreements that will certainly limit their options in the future. The case also highlights the fierce battle between Amazon and Google in the cloud.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
