We are seeking university students and new college graduates who are inventive, thoughtful, and curious. Are you interested in impacting technology for millions of Amazon customers worldwide? Join us and work with an experienced cross-disciplinary team to design, engineer, and develop high-profile consumer electronics products like Kindle Paperwhite and Kindle Fire HD.
