There are four job postings of interest at Amazon right now.
Director of Product, KDP (Hilarious corporate hoo-ha in the job description: …entrepreneurial, results-oriented direct ownership product vision maximize business benefit great customer experiences developing a vision defining a strategy influence across multiple company organizations bias for action ability to deliver first class customer experiences…blah blah blah)
Director, Kindle Content Support (blah blah)

Now, for those of you who’ve never worked in Cubeistan, “opportunity” is Cubeish for “problem.” But there are no problems in Cubeistan – no, problems are bad. We never ever admit there is a problem. There are only Challenges and Opportunities to be met with bright waxy smiles and metaphorical sleeve-rolling-up. So what this really means is, I hope:
A proven ability to be on the ball when shit gets fucked up, and fix it fast by either rewriting the TOS on the fly to claw back money from scammers and/or at least stop them from making future bucks, and/or write software that detects scammers and other fucking-shit-up “opportunities” exploited by said scammers.
So polish up your resume now!
