Alexa is the voice-first personal assistant AI available through over 100 million devices and counting.
Every single day, she is getting smarter and adding new skills like tracking fitness, games, and more. But did you know that Alexa can reach out in the moment to help make your life easier and delightful? From letting you know that your most recent Amazon delivery has arrived, to suggesting a new game to play with the kids, to reminding you it’s time to reorder coffee, Alexa can help you stay on top of your to do list and enjoy your free time.

We’re looking for a Sr. UX Designer for Alexa Proactive Experiences to define multimodal experiences that help Alexa help YOU, without you having to ask every time you need something. We welcome innovators and collaborators, as you will regularly find yourself in uncharted territory where the key to your success will be to get ahead of the curve, and you’ll be creating solutions for exciting and ambitious ideas for which no interaction paradigm currently exists.

You will partner closely with voice designers, product, and engineering teams focused on proactive experiences across Alexa endpoints and channels. You will advise on roadmaps, and your work will translate to new patterns and best practices that you will drive across the Alexa design landscape. You will work on new end-customer experiences and also create CX frameworks that allow the many Alexa domain teams to create their own proactive experiences. As a member of a growing design team, you will also be responsible for helping prioritize the team’s work and magnifying the impact of the team’s output across organizational boundaries.

This role and team is part of Alexa’s Proactivity team. We are a cross-discipline product team that works vertically and horizontally across Alexa to develop new core Alexa proactive experiences and services.

· Ability to manage ambiguity, work autonomously, and multi-task in an agile environment.
