Cool job: Manager of Reputations and Social Computing at Amazon.com

My friend Jeff Barr over at Amazon shared this incredibly cool sounding job that they’ve just created: Manager of Reputations and Social Computing.
Wondering what that is? Wonder no more:
“You’ll lead a talented and nimble team of engineers to create innovative software that finds and removes spam, finds the best customer created content, and helps customers connect with each other through novel trust mechanisms.”


Here’s more from the job description itself:
“Make an impact on the future of social computing on the Internet. Join Amazon.com as the Two-Pizza Team Leader (2PTL) of the Reputations team in Amazon.com’s Community group. As a 2PTL you will have business and technical ownership of mission critical systems that manage content and you will create compelling experiences for more than 50MM customers. You’ll lead a talented and nimble team of engineers to create innovative software that finds and removes spam, finds the best customer created content, and helps customers connect with each other through novel trust mechanisms. ”
Jeff says that the job description refers to something called a “Two-Pizza Team Lead”, but that this doesn’t mean that you get 2 free pizzas, but it does mean that this number of pizzas (size, crust type, and toppings unspecified) should be sufficient to feed your team. So you can have a large team as long as they aren’t big eaters, or you can keep your team small and nimble and enjoy lots of pizza.
The job is located at Amazon HQ in Seattle, and you’ll be an employee. Amazon has a dog-friendly environment and you can bring your dog to work too, which is nice.
