We are looking for an exceptional front-end developer to help build reusable content layouts that can delight our customers. Product development in Prime is a complex and global process.

The goal of this effort is to improve speed, drastically reduce the time to market, and enhance productivity across the entire product development process. You will work with WW stakeholders to define requirements and gain alignment to deliver a seamless product experience.
