Amazon’s Device Design Group has launched revolutionary products like Echo, Fire TV, Fire Tablet, Alexa Communications, and more. Are you interested in joining the team to lead Amazon’s next innovation?

Our design studio is looking for an exceptional UX Designer to join our growing team and craft elegant, customer-focused experiences. You will collaborate with designers, researchers, engineers, and product managers – working on projects throughout the planning, design, and development lifecycle. As a tastemaker and storyteller, you will advocate for design excellence – contributing to product vision, and collaborate with a team that defines and designs user interfaces, systems, and the interaction, visual, and motion design patterns for Fire Tablets.

The ideal candidate for this role will have a keen eye for elegant, modern design, and UI patterns. You think holistically, and craft the "why" of all that we ship – advocating for your design solutions by putting them in context of business and customer goals. You are at ease both visualizing an experience in the abstract and then driving that vision into concise design deliverables. You can drive the creative review cycle, craft delightful design solutions, and elevate the experience of millions of Tablet customers around the world.
