Amazon is looking for a Manager of Software Development to work on Amazon Go and Amazon Books, Amazon's first-ever brick & mortar retail stores.
Amazon Go is a new kind of store with no lines and no checkout - you just grab and go! Customers simply use the Amazon Go app to enter the store, take what they want from our selection of fresh, delicious meals and grocery essentials, and go! Our checkout-free shopping experience is made possible by our Just Walk Out Technology, which automatically detects when products are taken from or returned to the shelves and keeps track of them in a virtual cart. When you're done shopping, you can just leave the store. Shortly after, we'll charge your Amazon account and send you a receipt. Designed and custom-built by Amazonians, our Just Walk Out Technology uses a variety of technologies including computer vision, sensor fusion, and machine learning. Check it out at amazon.com/go.
Amazon Books is our effort to bring 20+ years of experience selling books online to brick & mortar bookstores. Our goal is to combine the best of online book shopping (frictionless checkout, Prime benefits) with the offline experience of browsing, exploring, and discovering great books in a physical bookstore. We are passionate about creating a shopping experience that Amazon customers love, and we have purposefully curated our book selection for each store to inspire all types of readers. We have launched Amazon Books in Seattle, San Diego, and Portland, with additional locations in development. For more information, see: amazon.com/amazonbooks.
As a Manager of Software Development, you'll build an elite team of development engineers to define, drive and execute on this vision. You will invent and ship software that directly impacts our end customer experience. You'll develop your team of highly motivated and talented builders who can collaborate with product managers, technical specialists, and principals across the company.
* You'll lead the overall development life cycle of software solutions and manage complex projects with significant impact.
* Coordinate with your senior engineers to develop the best technical design and approach for product development.
* Assure that your team's designs meet requirements, and deliver high-quality work on tight schedules.
* Prioritize, plan projects and features, manage partners, and track external commitments.
* Monitor operation of production services to ensure Operational Excellence.
* Foster the career development of your direct reports.
It is day one for our group and we need entrepreneurial, analytical, creative, and flexible leaders that will help make Amazon Books and Amazon Go places that customers love to shop. We are tackling problems today that will have a major impact on our future success. If you want to join a fast-paced team that is innovating and making history, this is the place for you.
