Be at the center of Amazon innovation with AmazonLocal! This daily deals marketplace offers customers discounts of up to 75% off desirable goods and services in their communities -- over 100 regions throughout the United States. This rapidly-growing business within Amazon offers a creative, fast-paced, entrepreneurial work environment.

Continued growth has created a need for dynamic, self-directed individual to join our writing and editing team. We're looking for writers with a knack for brevity and a no-nonsense approach to precision editing to help develop content for our AmazonLocal daily deals. The successful candidate is someone who can weave visual imagery with pertinent facts into lean, clean, effective copy at a brisk pace, all while adhering to high-quality standards.

You will work closely with our production team, business owners, and other writers on customer-facing deal copy that is smart, accurate, and embodies the Amazon voice.
You'll be integrating into an established team that is still lean, results-oriented and turns on a dime, so a demonstrated ability to adapt to rapidly changing needs while still delivering the highest work is necessary.
