Amazon Publishing is looking for a curious and enthusiastic software developer to help us innovate on behalf of authors and readers. Our goal is to introduce exceptional authors and their books to readers worldwide, in many different languages and formats including physical books and Kindle editions. We build software that helps authors increase readership and nurture their career. We commit to delighting authors, translators, illustrators, and editors by building systems that transform the ways we find, create, and market books globally. We operate in an agile environment of tremendous business and engineering opportunities and support developers who are driven by customers as much as technology.
We are excited about the opportunities ahead including building technology to support our most important customer interactions and to work on grounds-up product development. As a key member, you will get the opportunity to collaborate on major systems, own key deliverables, and experience all aspects of the development cycle: scoping, design, coding, testing, and delivering using an agile process. The successful candidate will feel comfortable in a culture of experimentation and innovation where new ideas are encouraged, and also have a proven track record of delivering results to solve important problems.
If you favor simple and elegant software solutions to complex problems, obsess over products that directly impact your customers, and want to revolutionize publishing, let's talk!
Amazon is a company operating a marketplace for consumers, sellers, and content creators.
