Job Description

Kindle delivers exceptional reading experiences because of its excellence in data driven Machine Learning capabilities built by experienced Data Engineers like YOU! We operate from a tera-to-petabyte scale and to help make sense of it all, the Kindle Insights ML Data Engineering team enables repeatable, easy, in depth analysis of Kindle customer behaviors.

We reduce the cost in time and effort of analysis, data set building, model building, and user segmentation. Our goal is to empower all teams at Amazon Kindle to make data driven decisions and effectively measure their results by providing high quality, high availability data, and democratized data access through self-service tools.

If you find big data irresistible, then this role is for you. We collect billions of events a day, manage tera-to-petabyte scale data on Redshift and S3, and develop data pipelines using Spark/Scala EMR, SQL based ETL, Python, R and Java services.

What do I need?

You are a talented, enthusiastic, and detail-oriented experienced Data Engineer who knows how to take on big data challenges in an agile way. Duties include big data design and analysis, data modeling, and development, deployment, and operations of big data pipelines. You will also help hire, mentor, and develop peers in the the Kindle Insights ML Data Engineering team including Data Scientists, Data Engineers, and Software Engineers. You'll help build Amazon Kindle's most important data pipelines and data sets, and expand self-service data knowledge and capabilities through an Amazon Kindle data ML feature set.

This role requires you to live at the cross section of data and engineering. You have a deep understanding of data, analytical techniques, and how to connect insights to the business, and you have practical experience in insisting on highest standards on operations in ETL and big data pipelines. With our Amazon Kindle Unlimited and Prime Reading services, and our top content provider in eBooks, providing high quality, high availability data to our internal customers is critical to our customer experiences.

Kindle Insights ML Data Engineering team develops data specifically for key business domains across the entire Kindle eco-system and provides and protects a robust self-service core data experience for all internal customers. We deal in AWS technologies like Redshift, S3, EMR, EC2, DynamoDB, Kinesis Firehose, and Lambda. In 2019 your team will build a new information model and data pipelines to a data lake storage and EMR/Spark processing layer. You'll be a leader who will partner with Product, Marketing, BI, and ML teams to build new behavioral events, pipelines, datasets, models, and reporting to support their initiatives. You'll also continue to develop our offline analytics capabilities in Tableau and build out our real time dashboarding capabilities.
