Alexa News keeps customers informed about the world around them by seamlessly integrating the news they want most into their everyday lives. We build news experiences across multiple devices, including the Echo Family, Fire TV, and Fire Tablet. These experiences touch every aspect of news, from lean-back ("Alexa, what's the news?") to specific questions ("Alexa, what's the latest with the election?"). Our teams work in a fast-paced environment with people who are passionate about our customers, experiences, and systems. As a member of the team, you should be able to learn new concepts quickly and feel at home in a new and constantly evolving space.
When a customer asks a question pertaining to news, the Alexa News Search and Discovery Team finds the right news article or experience to present to the customer. As a developer on the team, you will build experiences and services that enrich and store content given to us from newsrooms across the globe. You are responsible for ensuring that experiences within Amazon can search and return the most relevant news results. Additionally, you will work with the team to build solutions that will make Alexa News experiences a key part of everyone's day.
As a Software Developer on the team, you'll be responsible for taking on challenging technical and customer problems and building and maintaining quality products and systems. You should be able to build for the long-term, driving sound architectures and designing for stability of your systems, with the ability to evolve over time. You should be able to work with a variety of partners to help define our experiences and requirements, and work with your teammates to deliver delightful experiences to our customers. Additionally, you should have a strong sense of ownership, pushing for best practices and operational excellence and display a constant desire to learn and improve.
