VANS is seeking a talented UX Designer to play a key role in the future of shopping at Amazon.

Responsibilities:
· Drive the UX design of key, differentiated features for Amazon shopping across voice and voice-enabled platforms.
· Use diverse inputs — from product leadership to market analysis, customer feedback, metrics and usability findings — to identify and define exciting new concepts, opportunities, and solutions to customer problems.
· Mange design from initial concept through final implementation, working with our core team as well as partner teams across Amazon.
· Develop and maintain detailed design specs for both voice and screen-based UX.
· Clearly and persuasively communicate, specify, and describe design concepts, solutions, and needs to senior executives.
· Lead customer advocacy and integrate user research into the product development process.
· Contribute to the group’s best practices for UX design while continually advocating design thinking, process, and craft throughout our organization.
