We are a global UX team focused on getting our selling partners the help they need, when and how they need it. Our customers are all around the world and include people who sell on Amazon, sell to Amazon, and our associates who provide them with support.
Our expertise includes UX Design, Research and Prototyping. We work on projects ranging from rapid iterative UX Design on tactical projects, to major strategic efforts that rethink how we provide support to our customers. We partner with internal stakeholders to create user experiences that help, surprise and delight our customers. We do not work in a silo, we work together.
We are looking for a talented, motivated UX Designer to join our team. We want someone who can learn fast, and isn't afraid to ask questions; someone who can speak with and listen to stakeholders and customers; someone who can be a trusted partner, and work with business and engineering partners to deliver solutions that will raise the bar for customer experience.
What can we offer you in return? First - a great team to work with. You will join a team of designers, prototypers and researchers who shape and simplify the experiences of our selling partners and associates through a human-centered design process that balances data, customer insights, problem solving, craftsmanship and discerning taste.
You'll have some very interesting challenges and projects. You'll be able to create solutions that scale utilizing multiple tools to communicate your ideas such as journey maps, user flows, task analysis, competitive audits, storyboards, wireframes, prototypes, mockups, pattern systems and design specifications. You'll also have a voice in defining and choosing projects where you think you'll have most impact. UX is a partnership, not a service. We approach design holistically, strategically and systematically. We don't just work on projects, we come up with the ideas for projects.
You'll be able to grow in this role. There are senior designers on our team (and outside too) who'll provide you with support and mentorship in UX, and more broadly a lot of business and engineering partners who are happy to share what they know. You'll also have impact - our leadership are passionate about UX, and they want to know about our work, and the experiences we're working on.
