Amazon Payment Products is looking for a highly motivated, customer-focused Senior UX designer to drive engaging user experiences and push the limits of what customers expect, for a brand new, global program. This is an exciting and unique opportunity to own development of the end-to-end user experience for a high-visibility, innovative, global program, from the ground up.

You are a senior designer with 8+ years of experience working on real products that people use every day. You are an organized self-starter that can deal with ambiguity and are always on the lookout for ways to improve the customer experience. You are an excellent collaborator and have no problem presenting–and defending–your ideas to other designers, product managers, and company leaders. You understand the value of user testing and prototyping, and thrive in a fast-paced, startup-like environment. Above all you are passionate about solving real problems for real people through research, design, and iteration.

You will work with product and technical teams to create interfaces that are attractive, useful, usable and scalable. You will lead and use direct customer research, market analysis, feedback, site metrics, and usability findings to tailor your designs to the customer in order to best solve their problems. You will be responsible for developing your ideas from concept to completion, presenting them to stakeholders for approval, and working directly with developers to bring them to life.

We are a rapidly expanding team within Amazon focused on creating the best customer-facing experiences for the collection, organization, and enjoyment of personal data and content. We have big ideas, and are willing to take risks in order to realize them. We are small enough to move quickly while enjoying the stability that comes with being an industry leader. We tackle modern, complex problems in innovative ways and create software that improves people’s lives.
