Prime Video is disrupting traditional media with an ever-increasing selection of movies, TV shows, Emmy Award winning original content, add-on subscriptions including HBO, and live events like Thursday Night Football. Our architecture operates at Amazon-scale and raises the bar for playback reliability, video start time, and image quality. Prime Video runs on thousands of device types in over 200 territories worldwide.
The Playback Insights team designs, implements, and operates device-facing services that process and store telemetry and metrics for all of Prime Video. Every customer and device streaming Prime Video world wide reports into our systems, giving us the unique challenge of both scaling to handle incredibly high TPS, while also dealing with the complexities of Big Data.
Our architecture processes and stores hundreds of billions of events per day at petabyte scale, with obsessively high reliability and low operational overhead. We leverage many Amazon Web Services (AWS) technologies including EC2, S3, API Gateway, Kinesis, Lambda, Athena, and EMR.
Successful Software Engineer candidates have a solid background in modern programming languages, distributed system design, service-oriented architecture, and high scalability. Experience in Big Data and Machine Learning is a plus. Equally important is the ability to multi-task, invent, create reliable and maintainable code, and find creative, scalable solutions to difficult problems.
