We are inventing new Kindle eBook deals experiences centered around high quality, personalized recommendations. We are looking for highly skilled software development engineers to join our newly-formed deals team to build best-in-class services and front-end CX.
As a founding team member, you'll contribute to crucial choices regarding technology selection and architecture. You'll be working on a core part of our system that's not just critical to our business but presents fun and interesting challenges with the opportunity to experiment, learn, and invent every day.
What you will work on:
You will work on the design, implementation, validation and operation of the service that will power our deals program for customers. This includes data ingestion services, stream processing and transformation, use-case specific data pipelines, machine learning and data warehousing. Additionally, you'll help create customer-facing innovations, like new storefront recommenders and publisher-facing systems. You will work closely with talented and experienced engineers and product leads from teams that both produce and consume our data and the insights we derive from it.
This is a greenfield project to build a pivotal component of our overall ecosystem; your expertise will help to define the requirements, architecture, and optimizations required to satisfy our customers' and business needs.
What we are looking for:
We're looking for deeply technical software development engineers with experience building distributed systems that handle massive volumes of data as well as customer-facing CX that displays on a variety of clients. You care about and question how your work makes a difference to customers, internal and external, and enjoy working with stakeholders to ensure you're delivering the right outcome and how to increase the impact of your efforts.
You must have a track record of delivering high quality, significant outcomes and the ability to own a project from inception through to deployment and operations. You will have a framework for evaluating and selecting technical solutions. Ideally, you'll have worked on data ingestion or processing systems, understand how to measure and manage their operational performance and have experience detecting patterns and trends in big data sets.
We're looking for someone who loves books and wants to work with a small, mission-focused team in a startup environment. We need a highly collaborative team player, but also one-person wrecking crew - we expect you to get a lot done in the face of ambiguity and change.
