Amazon wants to turn practically anyone who can drive into a delivery person.

The company’s new service, Amazon Flex, relies on everyday people in everyday vehicles to pick up dozens of packages from a warehouse and deliver them to customers.

Previously, they were hiring in semi-stealth mode here, but they’re now officially listing Denver. They also emailed me to see if I wanted to participate.

You’ll need an Android phone and a vehicle as large as a mid-sized sedan, no open-bed trucks allowed. Amazon says it pays $18 to $25 per hour, although it’s unclear if that estimate factors in gas and taxes. Sign up here.
