Amazon Hires the Aptly-Named Charlie Kindel

Todd Bishop:

Charlie Kindel, the Seattle tech veteran who left his job as a Microsoft Windows Phone general manager in 2011 to join the startup world, has now been hired by as the director of an undisclosed project inside the company.

“I’m building a new team going after a totally new area for Amazon. I’m hiring cloud and mobile developers and testers, program managers, and product managers, he writes on his LinkedIn profile, which describes the position as director of “something secret.”

Interesting, to say the least.
