Amazon Ads operates at the intersection of e-commerce and advertising, offering a rich array of digital advertising solutions with the goal of helping our customers find and discover anything they want to buy. We help advertisers reach Amazon customers on Amazon owned and operated sites and on other high quality sites across the web.

As the Email Developer, you will partner with product, engineering, & channel marketing to make great customer experiences rather than just imagine them. You are knowledgeable about current UX design patterns, standards, and best practices (e.g., accessibility, consistency, hierarchy, typography, color, motion, etc.), and will choose the right creative processes to up-level existing experiences for our customers. To be successful, you’ll need to be a strong communicator who can earn trust with key stakeholders across multiple teams. You should be comfortable with ambiguity and are willing to work autonomously, handling multiple initiatives simultaneously.
