Job Description

Our vision is for Alexa to become the go-to shopping companion for customers throughout every aspect of their shopping journey. Whether they’re looking for help restocking household essentials, selecting a gift, or discovering their next great read – Alexa uses AI to make every part of the shopping journey more convenient. For example, Alexa can save customers time by capturing their in-the-moment shopping needs at home and on the go, organizing them and providing reminders for things they need so they can complete their shopping efficiently and avoid extra trips to the store. We recognize that no two customers have the same shopping needs, and we are constantly innovating to make shopping more convenient for all customers – providing lower prices, better selection and convenient services that will make their experience seamless online or in-store.

We're a high energy, fast growth business excited to have the opportunity to shape Alexa Shopping products for years to come. If this role seems like a good fit, please reach out, we'd love to talk to you.
