Does the idea of managing a team that builds taxonomies to highlight all of Amazon.co.jp’s mammoth selection from door knobs to books to things that haven’t even been invented yet sound fun?
Do you re-shelve misplaced books when you see them in a bookstore or library? Do you have a custom metadata and tagging scheme for your photo library? Did the Album organizing scene in High Fidelity speak remind you of yourself?
