Software Development Engineer, Digital Content Platform
Are you interested in building the next generation of a platform currently responsible for processing hundreds of millions of transactions a month? Maybe you’re already familiar with technologies like S3, SQS, Hadoop and Hive but never got the chance to push their boundaries? We also have a few more proprietary technologies for low latency data storage and aggregation in our toolbox you might want to play with. You bring the skills and enthusiasm; we’ll provide the big data. We are looking for Software Engineers that enjoy solving complex problems at incredible scale to join the RAPID (Reconciliation and Accounting Platform in Digital) team.
As a Software Engineer on the RAPID team you will be responsible for designing and implementing core components of our new platform to support the fast pace of Amazon’s digital media content offerings. You’ll help increase the speed to market for digital products like Amazon Kindle, Amazon Instant Video, Amazon Appstore and Amazon MP3. Our recent successes include supporting both Prime Instant Video launching in Europe and the Amazon Coins launches.
Amazon has an active development community that builds great tools and systems. There are frequent classes and seminars, as well as on-line resources for growth and development.
