The role sits on the Owned Content & Channels team within Amazon’s Global Communications and Community Impact org.

The successful candidate will have experience managing a team of writers and/or freelancers; a proven track record of developing and delivering compelling stories and campaigns with measurable results; and a strong understanding of SEO and the current digital content landscape.

We want someone who embraces innovation and experimentation, and brings executional excellence to our strategy.
