Job Description

Sponsored Products is Amazon's native advertising solution (run a search in Amazon and try to spot our sponsored native ads alongside with the organic results). Sponsored Products uses automatic and keyword targeting capabilities to give merchants control over product merchandising on Amazon by boosting the visibility of products when customers shop. Merchants can access the platform via self service capabilities and only pay when shoppers click on the ads. Even though this product started in 2012, it is growing rapidly and it has the potential of eventually becoming as large as other established CPC advertising publishers.
