Subject: Jobs at Amazon
Here are some jobs to post to members. These
could really have an impact on accessibility at Amazon.

Subject: My action item: URL for our open
accessibility engineering/QA positions [was Re:
NFB/Amazon Education - Collaborative Session/Conference Call]
One of my action items coming out of our meeting
earlier today was to share the URL for our open
accessibility positions.Â Please seeÂ
which is a specialÂ âlanding pageâÂ for all
of our open jobs on the Devices Accessibility and
Internationalization Team, which delivers
VoiceView on Fire Tables and Fire TV,
magnification on Fire Tablets, and our other
accessibilityÂ features on FireOS devices.Â It
also deliversÂ internationalization support for
those products, and while this page lists jobs in
both areas, at the moment 6 of the 8 open positions are for accessibility.
Across all of Amazon, you can find positions that
mention âaccessibilityâ with the URLÂ
That will include the 6 positions at the URL
above, but also many in the website org., as well
as positions that arenât full-time dedicated to
accessibility but for which we would like
accessibility expertise.Â That search term will
also turn up things related to things like
âAccess Managementâ, so candidates will need
to read through job titles & descriptions in
order to ensure the position is something they
are interested in.Â As an aside, thatâs how I
found my job I just did a searcch for
making a purchase, and found the Accessibility
Architect role that Iâm now in.
As I mentioned on our call, we already employ a
number of blind folks on this team, both in QA as
well software development.Â And weâd love to have more!
