The challenges range from building digital experiences to physical processes to service ecosystems that run Amazon's Global delivery network.

We are looking for a design technologist to build user interfaces and physical prototypes that bring life to the designs that represent the future of Amazon's Last Mile experience.

You are well versed in an appropriate mix of development and prototyping platforms and tools, and will select the best and most appropriate platform for the task. You will deliver code that is flexible and can be iterated upon, with an understanding of what to fake and what to make. The front-end interactions you bring to life will also inspire leaders to invest in new ideas, and guide developers in building the software.

* Be able to work creatively through and around perceived limitations and/or challenges imposed by the delivery platform to create delightful experiences for customers.
* Evaluate and document any new creative and/or engineering standards or patterns that could arise from your work.
* Effectively present and explain your prototype.
* Work as a part of 12-15 member team in a multi-disciplinary environment with product managers, software development engineers, UX designers, front end engineers and UX Researchers.
