We design solutions that improve digital advertising — for customers, advertisers, and everyone in between.
We're designing products that improve digital advertising — for customers, advertisers, and everyone in between.
We're a team of highly motivated problem solvers; designers, technologists, and researchers at the heart of Amazon advertising. From creative concepting and prototyping, to campaign delivery and reporting, we craft end-to-end solutions that help global brands reach millions of customers on desktop, mobile, Kindle, Fire tablet, Fire TV, and Alexa.
Enterprise User Experience
Our enterprise UX team designs planning, management, and reporting tools that make the complex seem simple, enabling advertisers to run high-volume advertising campaigns with the click of a mouse. They're committed to distilling diverse user needs into experiences that balance efficiency with robust utility.
Our technologists think big about digital advertising, bringing high-impact custom advertising campaigns to life. When they're not experimenting with virtual reality, Fire TV, Alexa, and other new technologies, they build tools to help teams create ads more efficiently.
From simple display ads to complex landing pages, from small mobile devices to Fire TV, our product designers strive to make ads relevant and respectful. As part of confidential Amazon projects, they concept, test, and operationalize new forms of advertising that keep customers' best interest in mind.
Digital advertising is a young and ever-evolving industry. Our UX researchers help uncover the unknown; learning about our customers, identifying new opportunities, and improving our products through testing. They champion usability in every stage of the product lifecycle: from discovery and design to deployment.
