Software Development Engineer (SDE) - V.1 team
Amazon's Kindle Ad Products group is looking for exceptional software engineers to build sophisticated distributed systems. This group was formed in 2011 to manage the special offers and sponsored screensavers that appear prominently on Amazon's family of e-readers and tablets. We support the advertising program on roughly 20 different devices, in a half-dozen regional markets. Not only would your work impact millions of customers each day, but you'll be generating revenue which brings down the price of Amazon's top-selling product. The Kindle Ads team owns this product end-to-end, with dedicated developers, QA, designers, sales, product managers and other roles. This gives us the unique opportunity to drive our roadmap, to prioritize features and to treat every team member as an owner with decision-making powers. As for the technology, we own just about every tier involved - from Android code to web tier, REST services, persistence, MapReduce and machine learning. If you like working with gadgets, or being involved in confidential projects in their early stages, this is the place to be.
