With the probability of a snowstorm looming over our heads, let’s work on job applications this weekend since we’ll be cooped up in the house anyway.
Amazon is seeking a Senior Ethnographic/Qualitative Researcher to help them deliver impactful foundational research that illuminates new insights and opportunities to delight their customers. In this role, you will be responsible for designing and conducting research using a range of methods, including field studies, diary studies, interviews, participatory design, and others. You will focus on answering meaty, complex questions and building deep understanding of our customers (and potential customers). Your research will uncover insights around their behaviors and attitudes, including how they make shopping decisions, what their needs and pain points are as they shop, and how they think about ambiguous notions like “value.” You’ll work closely with stakeholders in design, PM and engineering, and category and business teams to help drive thinking around how to better meet customer needs. You’ll design research studies that incorporate multiple methods in order to shine a light on areas we don’t yet understand, and you’ll tell memorable stories and write compelling deliverables that paint a rich picture of who our customers are and what they care about.
