  • Job Description

    Every year, millions of customers rely on Amazon’s popular community features, Customer Reviews and Ask, to help them make product decisions. These experiences are centered on product pages, and are always in the context of a specific product.
    We are a new product team within Amazon focused on helping our customers discover and share interest-based suggestions, questions, and knowledge around the most popular hobbies and interests that our customers are already fueling with purchases from Amazon. Our focus is customer engagement, with the ultimate goal of building a daily habit on Amazon for younger, socially-minded customers.
    The team moves quickly, before we have all the answers, and we celebrate our failures and learnings as hard as we celebrate our successes. We believe in our mission to ignite the interest-based communities we see developing in the Customer Reviews and Ask an Owner experiences. We believe that customer-generated content is as compelling as, and often more scalable than, highly curated content. We will tune our user experiences and algorithms over and over until we are successful.
