This opportunity is for a Software Development Engineer 3 who will serve as an architect to multiple engineering teams for Audible's Publishing Tools and Content Systems group. We are the team that creates and powers Audible's products for our global listeners. Our work begins when raw content is produced, either from Audible Studios, external publishers or individuals on the Audible Content Exchange. We own the systems responsible for all digital assets including audio, images, PDF's and metadata as they are ingested, mastered, encoded, quality controlled, edited and validated. We are the home for tech talent that wants to grow Audible's market leading business through deeper content and experiences. The team is comprised of developers who work in an agile environment and partner closely with Audible and Amazon tech teams, Product, UX and QA teams.
We are embarking on a mission to reshape the fundamental experiences and delight our customers and drive a strong engineering culture. It's our responsibility to push Audible into new places; wherever our customers are listening. Achieving this vision means expanding and strengthening our development process and leveraging new technologies to deliver services and web applications. We need your help to develop and deliver on this vision. Success means we lay the foundation for continued expansion of our company without disrupting an already tremendously successful and much loved project.
