Last Friday Amazon posted a new job listing for its German operations working out of Munich. The opening is for a PR Manager to lead Kindle marketing efforts in Germany. Amazon described the job duites as:
- responsibility for the Kindle’s press office in Munich as well as control of proactive and reactive media relations as part of the German Amazon PR team.
- increase development and implementation of strategies and campaigns with the aim of the awareness of Kindle in Germany.
- Management of the PR agency that assisted in the development and implementation of campaigns.
- Building and maintaining relationships with key industry contacts.
And so on. This job listing is in German, but the several listings for open positions in France are in English. Amazon is looking for a pair of Kindle Vendor Managers and a Head of Content Acquisition.It looks like Amazon is making up for lost time.
Amazon hasn’t dropped any hints about when the new Kindle Stores will launch, so don’t get your hopes up. It won’t happen until it happens.
