Are you a self-starter with a passion for e-commerce, looking to expand your retail skillset and help shape the way third-party Sellers work with Amazon?

By giving customers more of what they want – low prices, vast selection, and convenience – Amazon.com continues to grow and evolve as a world-class e-commerce platform. Today, more than 50% of Amazon’s total unit sales come from third-party selection.

We obsess over providing world-class support to Sellers selling on the Amazon platform. We strive to predict the Seller’s needs before they recognize they may have a problem, and provide solutions to help our third-party business partners better serve their customers.
