About the Employer

DESCRIPTION

Amazon is all in on games. We believe the evolution that began with arcade communities a quarter at a time, growing to the live streams and e-sports of today, will continue to a future where everyone is a gamer and every gamer can create, compete, collaborate and connect with others at massive scales. If you share our belief that games will produce some of the future’s most influential voices in media and art, and want to help developers around the world succeed and build these next-generation games -- come join us.

We are an Amazon Web Services (AWS) team obsessed with helping game developers revolutionize the way they deliver and monetize their games. We aim to address game development challenges for customers at any scale.

To be successful, you will apply strategic thinking to deliver end-to-end user-centered experiences, with the creativity and judgment to translate vision into concepts and designs that illustrate simplicity despite underlying complexity or constraints. You will partner with product management, engineering, gamers, and game developers to successfully go from early stage concepts to live products and services.
