Job Description

Localization Instructional Designer - AU
Are you People Obsessed, passionate about growing resilient, bar-raising talent that evolves with business needs? Fearless? Not afraid to ask audacious questions to ignite potential? The Amazon Seller Support Learning Experience team is the place for you!

The Seller Support business and its many thousands of global contact center Associates are critical to the success of several Amazon services including Marketplace, Fulfillment by Amazon, Global Selling, and B2B. We enable Sellers large and small to delight customers in unexpected ways, helping them build their businesses, and compete across the globe.

We cannot support our Sellers without first engaging our Associates. We believe every employee interaction builds trust, increases performance and drives engagement to enable extraordinary Seller experiences. To be effective these Associates need to be trained with materials localized for the marketplace of the Sellers they support. We’re looking for a Localization Instructional Designer who can help make this happen.

They understand the future direction of the business and adapt the training development strategy accordingly. They collaborate with the training delivery teams to generate innovative solutions to challenging business problems. And they champion the voice of the Associates to shape our business on behalf of our Sellers.

We cannot act alone to improve the Associate and Seller experience. The Localization Instructional Designer proactively aligns stakeholders, capabilities, and resources to achieve complex objectives quickly. They display a strong customer focus and ability to effectively build relationships, earn trust, and establish credibility.
