If working at Amazon is in your career plans, you’ll want to familiarize yourself with the concept of a ‘Bar Raiser’.
What’s a Bar Raiser, you might ask? In Amazon’s own words:
A Bar Raiser is an interviewer at Amazon who is brought into hiring loops to be an objective third party. By bringing in somebody who’s not associated with the team, the best long-term hiring decisions are made to ensure the company is always serving, surprising, and innovating for customers. The role of the Bar Raiser is to be a steward of Amazon’s 14 Leadership Principles.
