Giving Credibility to the Shadow Education System

Is Amazon Working on a Social Deals Phase in China?

I don’t have much information on this, but a friend sent an email around to his network based in Asia. In the email, he talks about Amazon hiring many, many people, and how they are hiring so much that on a weekly basis they are having onboarding seminars with new hires in rooms so packed, they have to split up the groups.

They are also apparently building a new structure / business that will require the help of technically minded people in China who have a gearing toward working with APIs at some of China’s biggest social networking sites.

Here’s a paragraph from the email. What could this mean, people in the know?

The Social Media team and the Deals team are growing teams in China for global development on new Deals systems, and integrations with Social Networks in China and worldwide. This is a unique startup-like opportunity within Amazon, where you will be the owner of what you build, and you will shape the future of Amazon’s involvement in Social Media and Deals space, globally.  Those interested should be interested in the latest cutting edge technology, and with external APIs of social networks like Sina, RenRen, QQ, Kaixin in China, and Facebook and Twitter globally.
