Job Description

The MAKO group is chartered with building platforms and programs globally that help customers discover, choose, purchase, and use Amazon Devices and Accessories. These include Echo, Kindle, FireTV, and Fire tablets. We are a cross-platform team that builds experiences online through mobile and desktop. We automate activities throughout the product lifecycle, so fewer resources are needed to launch and support the growing Amazon Devices business. Want customer visibility? The top banner on Amazon's homepage is for one of these devices, across all page loads, driving users to our features. Looking for visibility within Amazon? Our stakeholders include the Product and Marketing teams for all of the device categories, international markets, and Site Merchandisers.

We're looking for an experienced, results-oriented Software Development Engineer capable of building a world class customer experience on the Amazon retail website. We own highly scalable and robust platforms to provide the best customer experience possible for buying Amazon devices and accessories. These solutions cover a broad range of functional/technical areas and change the way customers find, learn, configure, and pay for Amazon's flagship products.

As an SDE in this group, you will lead and mentor other talented engineers. You will be responsible for building the best customer experience, keeping latency, security, and usability in mind. You will interact with Product Managers and Designers and convert their vision into a technical solution. You will collaborate with other Software Engineers and guide the team on web/mobile development best practices and set examples by using them in solutions that you build.

This position requires in-depth knowledge of design and development of web/mobile user interfaces and interactive applications. You should have experience with agile methodologies, working experience with at least one high level or scripting language, and experience building scalable and robust user interfaces. Experience with modern JavaScript frameworks (like angular, react, backbone, and node.js) would be a plus. You will own the end-to-end design of major deliverables, working closely with a team of SDEs and Front End Engineers to execute them. This is a high visibility and fast-paced environment where you will make a direct impact on the customer experience and the bottom line of the company.
