At Amazon we put our customers first in everything we do - including our advertising experiences. Prior experience with advertising technology is not a prerequisite, but obsessing over the customer certainly is one. We are part of a strategic and well-funded area of growth for Amazon. On our team, you will work cross-functionally with product managers, designers, and engineers to understand and guide their research needs (both known and unknown). This will provide you with the opportunity to have significant impact across Amazon by executing creative and influential primary research. About the hiring group
