In this role, you will own design direction for several large retail initiatives.

Second, Virtual Dash Buttons - uniquely Amazonian, playful reordering shortcuts that let customers shop across desktop computers, mobile app and via an emerging category of smart screen devices and appliances, such as smartwatches, screened fridges, smart mirrors, etc. Lastly, you will drive design for Subscription & Discovery Boxes - a new capability that lets Amazon selling partners offer subscription boxes (think delivering fun boxes of Funko figurines, wine samples or monthly chocolate fixes).
