The Amazon community team is hiring

Sometimes a job description comes across the Community Guy Jobs Board that I simply can’t help but share it’s so cool.

As a long time Amazon fan (I remember when the site was a solid tan background and only sold books), I’ve been so very impressed with the way their site and their community efforts have developed over the years. It’s disappointing that they don’t get more credit for the sheer volume of community/social features each and every page of their site has.

If you’re looking to be part of an impressive team and an impressive product, check out this job listing:
