Job Description

Over 2 million sellers in 11 countries (and growing) list their products for sale on Amazon Marketplace. Sellers are a critical part of Amazon’s ecosystem to deliver on our vision of offering the earth’s largest selection and lowest prices.

Our Marketplace team is made up of people like you. People who are: Entrepreneurial – We build solutions for Buyers and Sellers, regardless of size. In fact, many of us are Sellers ourselves. Innovative – Our problem space evolves every day due to scale, new categories and new geographies. There is no playbook for a Marketplace of this size, so innovation and creativity are a must. Passionate – We are passionate about our customers, both Sellers and Buyers. Everyone’s an owner at Amazon, and our team is no exception. Our business is growing fast and the pace is even faster. We invest in our team members, providing challenging roles with significant responsibility. Coaching and mentoring is taken seriously to ensure we continue to build a company we can be extremely proud of.
