Job Description

Prime Video is changing the way millions of customers interact with video content with a massive library of high-quality media and reliable digital delivery. Our services are engineered for high availability, maximum reach, and cost savings that we can pass on to customers. We enable the world to watch video instantly, from any device, whether on the road or from the comfort of a living room sofa. Today, we deliver Movies and TV shows to Windows and Mac PCs, portable devices, gaming consoles, smart phones, and smart TVs. We operate in over 250 countries and territories and we aspire to grow a lot.

What does the team do?

The CPX team is part of the Prime Video Catalog organization. Our vision is to enable the largest, richest catalog of video content in the world, available to customers as early as possible, by ensuring that we always publish our playable assets on time and with the highest quality. CPX team is responsible for the playable asset domain which includes the life cycle management of playable assets and associated metadata.

The CPX team owns the publishing, storage, validation, indexing and playability correctness of assets such as Videos (ex - Movies, Episodes, Trailers, VAM, Highlights, Replays, Ads), Subtitles, Audio, Live Event content (ex- ATP Tournaments, Thursday night football, NBA) and Live Linear Station content (ex- HBO, Starz). We orchestrate the asset pipeline from source ingestion to target generation and integrate the target assets into the catalog as parts. We apply business rules to perform various data completeness checks and regression checks on the target assets. We provide visibility into the asset pipeline to ensure playability. We provide failure retry workflows to ensure pipeline reliability.

What do we expect you to do?

You will be using your skills to design and build the next generation of our video supply chain. You will be solving complex scalability, availability and performance problems by building distributed, large-scale services using the latest AWS technologies like Lambda, DynamoDB, SQS, Redshift and S3. As we get more advanced, you will be using machine learning and AI to do sophisticated analysis of customer engagement data to automatically surface and fix quality issues.

We are looking for talented software development engineers who can contribute to our world-class engineering culture. We deliver meaningful results for customers while simultaneously investing in each team member's career and overall skill set. Domain-specific skills in video can be learned on the job. At Amazon, every engineer has the opportunity to positively impact millions of customers, and you will be called on to identify and realize these opportunities. Our team works end-to-end through the PrimeVideo platform, and our team members have direct ownership of the customer experience.

We embrace the challenges of a fast paced market and evolving technologies, paving the way to universal availability of video and pushing the envelope for streaming quality. You will be encouraged to see the big picture, be innovative, and positively impact millions of customers. This is a young and evolving business where creativity and drive can make a lasting impact on world-wide consumer entertainment.

Successful candidates for this position will have a background in Java, C#, or C++ or a similar development language. Equally important to these specific skills is a candidate's ability to multi-task, adapt quickly to new development environments and changing business requirements, learn new systems, gain new skills, create reliable & maintainable code, and find creative, scalable solutions to difficult problems.

We are looking for candidates who are passionate about delivering consistently great digital media experiences to our customers, particularly those who want to grow within a world-class engineering team.
