We'd love to have you join us and build the systems, services, and apps that delight our end users. We build apps for smart TVs, game consoles, and set top boxes. Using advanced machine learning and data mining techniques, we help our customers discover the best movies and TV shows. We measure data in Petabytes and streaming in Exabytes. We obsess over big picture problems like "How do we deliver video that’s more reliable than the internet it’s delivered over?" to low level details like "How do we squeeze maximum performance out of every device we support?" We strive to be on the forefront of new consumer technologies. We build huge scale distributed systems on the AWS cloud to make sure our service is always reliable for our customers. We use computer vision and machine learning techniques to build rich metadata about videos, and partner closely with teams like IMDb to let customers explore deeper into the TV and movies they love. In short, we have exciting challenges in an industry that’s doubling in size every year, and you can be a part of it.
