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.
We are seeking strong software development engineers with distributed services and web service experience to build the services that power all of Amazon Video devices and web globally. As an Amazon software engineer you will design, develop, test, and run operations for core platform services. You will take a defined design and turn it into code and deliver it on schedule, applying appropriate technologies and current software engineering best practices. You'll write secure, stable, testable, maintainable code with minimal defects. You'll participate in team design, scoping and prioritization discussions. You'll work effectively with customers and/or internal partners to understand business impacts and identify any opportunities/problems arising from technical decisions. A successful candidate will have an established background in developing services for consumer-facing products, a strong technical ability, excellent organizational skills, great communication skills, a motivation to achieve results in a fast-paced environment, and, of course, a passion for TV and film.
We care about your career growth, too. Once you join the team, you and your manager will jointly craft a career plan and you’ll review it regularly to ensure you’re on track to meet your goals. Whether your goals are to explore new technologies, take on bigger problems, or get to the next level, we’ll help you get there. Our business is growing fast, and our people will grow with it.
