The program currently serves over 200 million members in 25 countries, with plans for further expansion.

The Amazon Prime UX Design team is at the heart of the Prime membership, loved by millions of members worldwide. We innovate & design on behalf of our customers, constantly striving to raise the bar and improve the membership experience and delight our customers around the globe.

To help us achieve our vision, Prime UX Design is seeking a talented, innovative Senior UX Writer to join our highly collaborative and growing team. This role will influence and be involved with every aspect of the product development lifecycle, from discovery and refinement to a catching a typo right before a launch.

This person will partner with our Designers, Researchers, and Product, Marketing, Branding, and Tech partners, to help create compelling experiences for Amazon's customers, with a passion for every word.

Key job responsibilities

  • You have a passion for creating great customer experiences & adopting a human-centered approach to content, design, and product development.
  • You care deeply about your craft and truly own “the words.”
  • You produce product content that is clear, helpful, human, scalable, inclusive.
  • You’re attuned to the nuances and interpretations of language.
  • You help shape product strategy and vision, thinking long-term and strategically while still achieving quick wins and short-term objectives.
  • You’re an expert at knowing what to say and when to say it — as well as knowing what not to say and leave out — always making sure that customers have the right information at the right time.
  • You develop content frameworks, voice and tone guidelines, product narratives, and other deliverables that explain your recommendations and help people understand the practice of UX writing and content strategy.
  • You work with cross-functional partners (designers, researchers, product managers, legal, brand, PR, customer care, operations) to drive consensus across teams and advocate for solutions that balance customer needs and business goals.
  • You’re comfortable with navigating ambiguity and driving toward clarity and solutions.
  • You ask a lot of questions and sweat the details, whether it’s nailing down requirements or obsessing over text alignment.
  • You’re all about consistency too, but also know when clarity supersedes consistency.
  • You champion content-first approaches and opportunities.
  • You’re proactive about finding ways in which language can make a measurable customer impact.
