Amazon’s Nigerian Prince

I saw the following job from Amazon Berlin.

The first line “Work hard. Have fun. Make history”. The first thing that came to mind was the Nigerian prince scams. Amazon probably has this line to filter those that won’t fit their culture of frugality and hard work.

I also think it works well in the European context, where people care a lot about what Peter Thiel calls “work life life life balance”.

I don’t know if it is intentional, but it is definitely good for managing expectations, and kinda bold.
