Job Description

We’re hiring talented Software Development Engineers with expertise and passion in solving challenging engineering problems to help start a new initiative!

Amazon EU Expansion technical team manages the Amazon’s internationalization efforts, namely the creation of new Amazon marketplaces.

Jeff Bezos wrote ‘To invent you have to experiment’ in his letter to shareholders. As an extension of this, EU Expansion Tech team is now looking at expansion opportunities beyond EU5 (DE, UK, FR, IT, ES) and offering you a chance to enable world’s biggest selection and best experience to our customers. Different countries in Europe have peculiarities with which you need to tackle to create the best-in-class experience. No solution is one size for all, creating the ultimate challenge and we have just got started.
We are motivated problem-solvers who embrace the end-to-end ownership of services that make tens of millions of retail decisions every minute, within a distributed technical environment. Our engineers create the best European shopping experience possible, at the biggest scale ever. Come and join our team in Luxembourg to find new, creative and disruptive ways to deliver anything and everything to our customers in Europe.

Engineering at Amazon is for you if you want to:
  • Build a new Amazon service
  • Own the complete software development life-cycle; defining, prioritizing, designing, building, and testing new features
  • Work with globally distributed servers and customers.
  • Partner closely with a great team of software developers who will help you grow (and also learn things from you).
  • Launch a new Amazon business at scale


At Amazon, our engineers are work in “two pizza teams” on technical strategy and are constantly influencing the customer experience directly. The goal is to solve complex technical problems with solutions that are testable, maintainable and efficient. Typically our developers own a large component, application, device software or service and launch software that improves major portions of a product or application. Of course, our teams are always looking to automate and simplify! We also don’t have a lot of layers at Amazon, so developers have direct access to the business teams and organizational leadership.
