Job description


As a UX Designer for Personalization, you will craft simple, fluid, and beautiful Amazon.com shopping experiences, tailored for millions of customers worldwide. You have an inventor's spirit and highly refined aesthetic sensibilities to design elegant solutions that provide customers relevant and timely product, program, and content recommendations.

Your work will focus on desktop first, but you should be passionate about expanding features that move with users from one device to another.

The Amazon Retail Experience Design team is a group of highly curious designers, researchers, and prototypers working collaboratively to bring products to life, power the Amazon shopping experience, and deliver innovation at incredible scale across all devices and touch-points. Our team is excited to welcome a new creative and driven designer to join us as we build best-in-class shopping experiences for millions of people around the world.
