Kathryn’s degree in computer science, with an emphasis on human-computer interaction, suits her role at Amazon Lab126 perfectly—since she constantly thinks about customers when making product decisions. This ability also comes from previous experience as a user interface designer at a tech company. She was happy before the switch, but Kathryn’s love for her own Kindle made the role at Amazon Lab126 her dream job.
Inspired by her love of reading, Kathryn works on new software and hardware features to make the entire Kindle line the best reading devices ever. So far, her leadership has contributed to successes such as launching Kindle Oasis and developing a new font that allows users to read faster with less eyestrain.
