In 2014, Amazon launched Kindle Unlimited, a digital reading subscription that provides members unlimited access to more than 1 million books, audiobooks and magazines. It soon became the most popular digital reading subscription in the world, empowering millions of book lovers to read, learn and explore on any device. Extending that goodness to Prime members worldwide, Amazon launched Prime Reading in 2016, a free Prime benefit for more casual readers.
The Kindle Design team, the folks who design the book shopping and reading experience of the top rated iOS and Android apps, eReaders, tablets and more, are seeking a talented and customer-obsessed UX Designer to join the team, in our downtown Seattle, WA location.
