Job Description

Are you a versatile, analytical problem solver? Can you communicate complex and technical business concepts in appealing online support content? Amazon’s Employee Engagement Platforms team, part of HR Services, is looking for a Content Strategist to create and manage highly digestible content that's easy to find and use, including self-service online articles, e-mail communications, standard operating procedure (SOP) documents, policies, templates, and other worldwide content.

The Team
The Employee Engagement Platforms Team owns the Human Resources self-service strategy and ensures a consistent global user experience for all Amazon employees. We are a fun and diverse team with members in several different countries.

Our goal is to empower employees to find answers to their questions, with additional support from Amazon’s Employee Resource Center (ERC) to answer specialized questions through a variety of contact channels designed to meet the preferences of our employees. We use a variety of data sources to better understand customer needs and partner with global shared service teams to design self-service solutions that leverage digital technologies (e.g., social, mobile, cloud, and analytics) to help HR create a world-class experience for employees.
