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 Showtime, and live events like Thursday Night Football. Our services are engineered for high availability, maximum reach, and cost savings 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.
Linear content is unique for customers in the sense that it provides a) the availability of live event broadcasts such as Grammy's, Australian Open, Winter Olympics and b) provides content for 'zone out' situations wherein customers don't spend too much time figuring out what to watch.
We are building a new team to disrupt the Live TV viewing experience. The team designs, implements, and operates the systems responsible for enabling Live TV experience to the Prime Video customers worldwide. This is a young and evolving business where creativity and drive can make a lasting impact on world-wide consumer entertainment.
We are looking for autonomous leaders who can lead and grow high velocity engineering teams. As every day is Day 1 at Amazon experience running a startup or growing an engineering team within a large organization is a plus.
As a Senior SDM on our team, you will be responsible for systems that serve millions of customers per day, with obsessively high reliability, and low operational overhead. We leverage Amazon Web Services (AWS) technologies including EC2, S3, DynamoDB, Lambda, Kinesis, Athena, CloudFront, and internal AWS incubator technologies.
You will have an enormous opportunity to impact the customer experience, design, architecture, and implementation of cutting-edge products that will be used every day by people you know. No matter what the role, we're looking for people who are passionate about innovating on behalf of customers, demonstrate a high degree of ownership, and want to have fun while they make history.
What you'll do:
§ Manage a team of software engineers, including their projects, performance, and career growth
§ Clearly communicate project roadmaps with your team, management, and principal stakeholders
§ Work with peer managers to determine scope and estimate development effort
§ Lead systems design, architecture, and scaling discussions
§ Argue for the right outcomes with data, conviction, and diplomacy
