There are few opportunities out there to influence millions of people around the world every single day. Of those, even fewer opportunities allow you to work on a small team and employ your arsenal of strong algorithmic intuition, mad coding skills, high judgement and analytical skills to build and ship software that can directly, and measurably impact a multi-billion dollar business ... this is one of those opportunities.
Amazon's Personalization org is focused on building systems and features to expose highly personalized, relevant content to our customers. We strive to help customers find what they are looking for, and delight them with serendipitous discovery. We leverage datamining and machine learning techniques to make sense of some of the biggest datasets in the world. We build features and services that power multiple channels including website, email, mobile apps and devices. We employ data-driven techniques to design innovative algorithms, build highly-scalable real-time distributed systems, and continually design and build new, innovative and fun ways to interact with our customers.
As a key member of the engineering team working on the best personalization and automated merchandising technology on the planet, you will contribute to all aspects of the software lifecycle: design, experimentation, implementation and testing. You will be responsible for devising the next generation of recommendations algorithms through large scale data analysis and experimentation, building scalable low-latency real-time systems, and building interfaces to present personalized content to customers in intuitive, delightful ways. You should be willing to dive deep, experiment rapidly and get things done.
