Offer and Remote Catalog Services (ORCS) is at the core of Amazon.com websites serving millions of requests per second at single digit millisecond latency. We are the authority for critical product and purchasing data such as availability and price. Our team owns software running in a distributed, highly performant, and highly available micro-service computing system containing billions of records.
Our clients are hundreds of internal clients, businesses that contribute to the Amazon.com website and other customer interfaces such as Kindle and Amazon Alexa. We play an active role in providing design and consultation across Amazon to enable these business use-cases at Amazon.com's scale.
We are looking for Software Developers with at least 3 years of experience in distributed systems to join our team! Our team has built up a sophisticated support network for career growth and operations. You will work with several senior and principal engineers on a regular basis. We are very disciplined and maintain a high bar for engineering excellence so that on-call rotation has very little impact on our personal life. Our engineers are customer-focused and detail-oriented. We are Linux systems-savvy and good API designers. These skills help us define the bleeding edge for elegant, super-scalable services at Amazon.com.
The ideal candidate will have strong distributed systems and web services design and implementation experience. You should have a thorough understanding of Internet protocols and experience implementing high scale services on Java, C#, C++, or similar language. You should be somebody who enjoys working on owning software services, is customer-centric, and feels strongly not only about building good software but about making that software achieve its goals in operational reality.
