onsider the following problem: every day, millions of customers with unique interests and needs come to Amazon looking for products out of a catalog of over a billion items. On each page, we need to decide what content would be most helpful to customers - ranging from automated recommendations to manual merchandising to navigational or informational content, etc. What do we show to customers to help them make shopping decisions and help them discover more parts of Amazon's vast catalog.

You will have a unique opportunity to drive direct, measurable impact to our customers, powering features on the website generating billions of dollars of revenue each year.

We refuse to accept constraints, internal or external, and have a strong bias for action. We imagine, build prototypes, validate ideas, and launch follow-up experiments from the successful ones.
