Job Description

Amazon Video is changing the way millions of customers interact with video content. The Amazon Video team delivers high-quality instant video to Amazon customers through subscriptions (Amazon Prime) as well as purchases and rentals. Amazon believes so deeply in the mission of Amazon Video that we've launched our own studio to create original and exclusive content. Every day we face the challenges of a fast-paced market and expanding technology set.

As a member of the team, you will spend your time as a software development engineer and a technical leader. You will play a key role in delivering software products and features to the highest quality. You will use a wide range of technologies, devices, services, and systems. Your responsibilities will include all aspects of software engineering. You will have the freedom and encouragement to explore your own ideas and the reward of seeing your contributions delight millions of customers worldwide.

We design and build playback experiences for the web, mobile phones, tablets, smart TVs, game consoles, and set top boxes.

We focus on making Amazon Video the best place to watch movies, TV shows, live events, and other video types. Period. We constantly challenge ourselves to create the ultimate customer experience for watching video.

We measure data in Petabytes and streaming in Exabytes. We obsess over big picture problems like "How do we deliver video that's more reliable than the internet it's delivered over?" to low level details like "How do we squeeze maximum picture quality out of every bit delivered?" We strive to be on the forefront of new consumer technologies like UHD TV and High Dynamic Range video. In short, we have exciting challenges in an industry that's doubling in size every year, and you can be a part of it.

The Amazon Video Players team is looking for smart and motivated software development engineers to help build solutions that change the way customers watch movies, TV shows, and live events. The playback team is responsible for creating a smooth and seamless video experience on the web and various mobile devices as well as living room devices such as the Kindle Fire, 3rd party Android devices, iPad/iPhone, Xbox, Wii/WiiU, and PS3/PS4.

The candidate will join the next-generation player team whose focus is on the development of a cross-platform player that enables rapid innovations in all of our customer's watching environments.

We are looking for candidates who are passionate about delivering truly innovative digital media experiences to our customers. This is a young and evolving business where creativity and drive can have a lasting impact on the way video is enjoyed worldwide.
