About the hiring team:
Even as the 10th most-installed app, we're still learning how to make the right decisions for customers, how to satisfy customer feedback, how to communicate to customers, how to educate customers on new features, prioritizing X feature over Y feature, and so on. We spend a lot of time thinking about what mobile shopping means and how we do it correctly with strong partnerships between dev, product, and design competencies. We created the App Experiences (AppX) team to explore new ways for Amazon customers to complete common shopping tasks quicker, browse more efficiently, and discover new features. Our toughest problems are crafting world-class experiences putting customers first by understanding their frustrations with day to day shopping. We are feature innovators at heart and obsess over customer experience.
