Job Description

Together, we will have significant impact on the Amazon advertising business by executing creative and influential primary research for rapidly growing advertising products and services, such as Sponsored Products, Amazon Marketing Services, and the Amazon Ad Platform.

You will be responsible for driving a research strategy and implementing it, while inventing new research techniques and technologies along the way. In addition to collaborating with your research peers, you will interact daily with product managers, designers, and engineers to understand and guide the team’s research needs (known and unknown). This will including crafting and conducting UX research, as well as diving deep into the data to bring forward new insights that drive product innovation. Experience applying a variety of UX research methods in a dynamic and rapidly changing product development environment is highly desirable. You should be comfortable diving deep into complex subject matter to help define the direction of new products and will be asked to regularly step back to ask big questions that impact the overall customer experience. This role requires the ability to collaborate with and influence others including designers, engineers, business owners and executives. Most importantly, it requires a committed determination to do what is right for Amazon's customers.
  • Identify and prioritize research questions based on the analysis of existing product designs, business needs, project goals and risks.

  • Perform quick but thorough data analysis in order to uncover insightful and actionable results.
