UX Designer, Alexa Skills Delivery

Description

"Alexa, find me an awesome designer!"

Come invent the future of device interaction with us and the rest of the world. Sound fun? Then the Alexa Skills Kit (ASK) Tech team wants to talk to you. We and the thousands of developers we empower are leading the way to new types of voice-driven and blended experiences across Amazon's products and services—like Amazon Echo, Amazon Fire TV and Amazon Dash. Our mission is to push the envelope of what is possible and how far device experiences can go.

As a UX Designer on the Alexa Skills Kit, you will define and drive spoken language and multimodal interfaces for Amazon and third-party development partners. How cool is that?!

You are a people-focused innovator. You are extremely proactive, as you will regularly find yourself in uncharted territory where the key to your success will be anticipating the future. You are a collaborator, and will be working side-by-side with design and engineering team members to bring your designs to life.

We are looking for a designer who can:

  • Excel at communicating and documenting design
  • Use standard methods and techniques to produce UX artifacts for given design situations
  • Combine experience, research, and analysis of information and data to inform UX improvement
  • Appreciate great end-to-end experiences, paying attention to flow, context, microinteractions, performance, and change
  • Start simple while not losing sight of the long-term vision
  • Thrive in a nimble, flexible environment
  • Communicate clearly and think quickly
