Amazon is seeking an alcohol lobbyist to work in the Washington, D.C. area, a potential signal that the e-commerce giant is looking to expand its alcohol selling efforts.
As The Hill pointed out, Amazon's job opening was for "Manager, Public Policy — Alcohol."
"We are looking for a Manager, Public Policy to join our growing public policy team to help lead state and local engagement and public policy activities related to Alcohol Regulation," the job post reads.
"The Manager will be a highly visible position that will create, execute, and manage key public policy issues related to Alcohol Procurement and Sales."
Among the qualifications for the job is experience in the alcohol industry and at least eight years of lobbying experience.
"This position will have a geographic focus on states in the eastern half of the U.S. but an ability and desire to travel nationwide is required," the post reads.
Amazon has grown from an online bookstore to an international marketplace that sells almost anything. It does sell alcohol from verified sellers.
