    Are you a creative big thinker who’s passionate about design-led thinking and evangelizing user experience? Do you find yourself dreaming up new ways of bringing innovative concepts to life? Have you ever wanted to make a meaningful impact to the daily lives of hundreds of thousands of employees? We're looking for someone to help us deliver a meaningful employee experience, building tools to manage processes such as goals, feedback, reviews and promotions. Come be part of a team that will directly shape and influence the future growth of every employee at Amazon.

    Our mission is to create innovative and inclusive experiences which empower Amazonians to own their careers. We are a growing internal design studio located in Edinburgh, Scotland.

You will join a team of passionate designers to create products to address the sheer scale of HR at Amazon, while providing engaging, personal, and human experiences. You will be responsible for cultivating and crafting the vision for the next generation product suite, and leading the execution of that vision.
