Amazon is focused on protecting the health and safety of our employees while continuing to serve people who need our services more than ever. Regular testing on a global scale across all industries would both help keep people safe and help get the economy back up and running. But for this to work, we as a society would need vastly more testing capacity. Until we have an effective vaccine available, high-volume testing capacity would help, but getting that done will take collective action by NGOs, companies, and governments.

For our part, Amazon has begun the work of building incremental testing capacity.

As a Senior UX Designer, you lead design of operational processes & applications for testing experiences. You are a self-starter who thrives on ambiguity and is comfortable wearing many hats. You create highly functional, globally durable user experiences that demonstrate a passion for relentlessly optimizing processes. Your recommendations increase productivity and safety. Collaboration is critical to your process. Your work is informed by partners, research, metrics, and high judgement.

Key Responsibilities:
· Lead design for operations & services for COVID-19 testing.
· Work in a highly ambiguous and rapidly changing environment, willingness to roll up your sleeves and pitch in wherever necessary.
· Use business requirements, technical input, and research to assist in developing scenarios, use cases, and design requirements independently.
· Ability to drive the design review cycle and alignment with designers, product managers, program managers, engineers, operations, and compliance to deliver design recommendations.
· Design conceptual diagrams, wireframes, information architecture, high-fidelity mock-ups, simple prototypes, and interaction specifications.
· Excellent communication, presentation, interpersonal and analytical skills; the ability to communicate complex concepts and rationale for design decisions clearly and persuasively across different audiences including senior leadership.
· Develop and maintain detailed user-interface specifications and design patterns that scale for your team and influence other designers.
· Refine and extend screen comps based on an established visual toolkit.
· Define and document process flows for operations.
