At Amazon Video, we're fundamentally changing the way millions of customers access, consume and interact with video content worldwide. Inventing on behalf of our customers is in our DNA: Prime Video, X-Ray, Amazon Studio Originals (The Grand Tour, The Man in the High Castle, Transparent, Shaun the Sheep..) and add-on subscriptions (Showtime, Starz, Comedy Central..) are just a few of the features and capabilities that delight our customers. It's a green-field space overdue for disruption and we'd like you to join us in our mission to enable everyone to search, discover, consume and interact with video content anytime, anywhere and on any device.
The Amazon Video (AV) Web team owns the website experience for all AV customers worldwide. This includes the AV Homepage, Detail Page, Search, Browse, Watchlists, Your Video Library, Account Settings and the Getting Started experience. We're building AV's next generation website architecture and customer experience using technologies such as Node.js, React, Scala and machine learning.
As a Senior Software Development Engineer on the AV Web team, you will lead the design and implementation of significant technical projects by both achieving results through other SDE's as well as writing critical-path code yourself. In collaboration with the Software Development Manager on the team, you will influence your team’s technical and business strategy by making insightful contributions to team priorities and approach, take the lead in identifying and solving ambiguous technical problems, architecture deficiencies, or areas where your team’s software bottlenecks the innovation of other teams. To achieve results through others, you will demonstrate technical influence over 1-2 teams, either via a collaborative software effort or by increasing their productivity and effectiveness by driving software engineering best practices. You'll also lead design reviews for your team, actively participate in design reviews across the org, provide insightful code reviews and actively mentor other engineers.
