If you’ve been yearning for a chance to apply your design prowess and finely-tuned user-first thinking to solving really fun, really hard, and really interesting real-world problems, this might just be the position for you.
The Tax organization has a very important and highly visible role at Amazon. The Tax Technology group, where this position lives, works within the larger Tax organization to provide innovative technological solutions for complex business problems.
Qualified candidates for this position don’t need a background in accounting. They don’t even need to like doing their taxes every year.
The well qualified candidate will stand out for their passion for solving puzzles, applying consistency, turning complexity into simplicity, and refusing to compromise when fighting for their users’ right to get things done without a lot of overhead.
we’re using best practices, design thinking, consistent design patterns, and real numbers to build delightful and important user experiences that matter.
We’re looking for a talented and experienced UX Designer who will contribute to the Tax Technology vision of building a suite of tightly integrated products that work together to solve complex business needs.
We are developing innovative products including a next-generation application platform, data catalog, data discovery engine, mapping platform and visualization engine, and more with state-of-the-art user experiences.
As a customer advocate you will work with product owners upstream to help establish a bold product vision while working with software developers downstream to design within (but push the boundaries of) technological constraints.
Along the way, you’ll be working closely with your cross-functional and highly capable Design Team members to generate aspirational and innovative solutions, contribute to a holistic design system, and courageously raise the bar for user experiences.
This team only accepts the exceptional, so expect to be both inspired and challenged (in the best possible way) on a daily basis.
We hope you’ll return the favor!
You’ll use your skills to invent and iterate on end-to-end workflows and product experiences. You’ll develop your ideas from rough sketches, wireframes, and storyboards thorough fully interactive, high-fidelity prototypes and then confidently communicate your vision to senior executives and other stakeholders.
You should be able to lead by example, earn the trust of the team and stakeholders, and balance daily deliverables while participating in organization-wide efforts to build a vision for the long term.
React-based application experience ideal.
