Job Description

Amazon Video has an exciting new mission to transform how we work with devices. The end goal is to make device management fully automated, by building APIs and services to orchestrate and manage devices globally. If you are interested in automation, streaming technologies, as well as building scalable cloud based middleware then this could be a great opportunity for you.
Amazon Video designs and builds user interfaces using the latest web technologies, to enable viewers to watch content across a wide range of TVs, connected devices and games consoles. The company passionately believes in combining the two key media disciplines, of design and development, to produce solutions of extraordinary elegance and power. We are looking for talented engineers to join our device automation and configuration services team based in London.

You will be an inventor working with a talented team of like-minded inventors. Collaboration and passion are essential ingredients for success and you will be surrounded by driven, forward thinking individuals. Be prepared to bring unique and creative ideas to every discussion.

You will be as happy coding, as building new hardware stacks, or tuning and tweaking off-the-shelf hardware. You love holistic solutions, networking, cloud, making new inventions and making history.

As we invent and simplify it is likely that this team will move into building robotics solutions and hardware based delivery of automation components (controllers, agents, device I/O, network management). Micro controllers and portable device programming will become essential, so if you like to build IoT solutions, and plugging in your Raspberry Pi we would be very interested in hearing from you.

We are looking for candidates who are passionate about technology and application development, people who keep up with the latest advances. If you see there are no problems, but only solutions yet to be made, then this is for you.

Basic Qualifications


  • Capable clean coders with the ability to talk through projects delivered by teams they’ve worked in from different angles in both positive and negative terms
  • Strong object-oriented design skills
  • Experience with automation tooling, frameworks and architectures
  • Testing and quality assurance best practices
  • Git version control
  • Good foundation in general application architecture
  • An eye for clean, maintainable code
  • Experience in the delivery of key services, features and websites involving multiple stakeholders and dependencies
  • Involved in areas outside of immediate role

We are looking for software development engineers with experience building large scale software and application architecture, therefore knowledge of multiple languages is expected.

Preferred Qualifications


  • Experience of working on devices
  • IoT integration and development
  • Experience with video technology/streaming
  • Enterprise level Javascript/Node and Java
  • Lua and C++ experience a plus
  • Other languages (PHP, Ruby, Python)
  • Experience with functional testing
  • Experience with cloud based solutions
  • Experience with low level device programming from switches to raspberry PI
  • Understanding and experience with networks and networking hardware

As a lot of the technologies we use are new. We really look for an active interest in greenfield software development and having a Github repo, contributing to developer forums etc is always a plus.
