Amazon Physical Stores is more start-up than big-company, a group of entrepreneurial, analytical, and creative leaders with innovation at our core. We’re pushing the state of the art in helping customers shop in engaging, fast, and safe ways. We tackle this from multiple perspectives: customer-facing digital experiences, store fixtures, associate tools, operation support and insights, and more. To date we’ve created stores that let you use an app to enter, take what you want from our fresh selection, and go (Amazon Go); a smart shopping cart that uses computer vision algorithms and sensor fusion to let you skip the checkout line (Amazon Dash Cart); and contactless services that let you pay, enter or identify yourself (Amazon One). We’re looking for a UX Designer to help shape what’s next.

As a UX Designer for Amazon Physical Stores, you will work on defining and designing experiences across physical and digital space and work with emerging technology. You have experience and expertise in understanding the customer problem, designing out-of-the-box solutions, and working collaboratively with designers, researchers, engineers, product managers, and executives. We care about your career growth, too. Once you join the team, you and your manager will craft a career plan that you’ll review regularly to ensure you’re on track to meet your goals. Whether your goals are to explore new technologies, take on bigger opportunities, or get to the next level, we’ll help you get there.
