Ecommerce Giant Amazon Wants to Woo the Inventor Entrepreneurs

In a world where you can crowdfund even your craziest idea and then build it yourself with a desktop 3-D printer, some of the hottest new gadgets, devices and technologies are coming from garage inventors.

Amazon knows this and is trying to attract those inventors and startups to its ecommerce platform. It?s not exactly clear just what the Seattle-based tech ecommerce behemoth is building, but a couple of job applications first spotted by tech blog Re/code make vague references to building ?the world’s best end-to-end platform for startups.?
