Identity Services owns the systems that enable authenticating and identifying every Amazon customer in the world. Every aspect of the Amazon global business depends on our systems to know who the customer is, and if our systems are not up and running, the company stops. We balance keeping our systems fast, scalable and performant (no exceptions!) with rapidly delivering great features for Amazon customers and our developer partners. In short, we get to own and innovate on a critical customer experience while also supporting nearly every other business at the company; the best of both worlds!
The Mobile Identity team is responsible for all non-website initiated authentication for access to or using Amazon systems. The area of influence is all Amazon customers on Amazon devices, Amazon and subsidiary apps as well as thousands of Login with Amazon clients and millions of customers. Examples include Alexa, Echo, Kindle, Tablets, FireTV and the various shopping and delivery Apps. Customer trust is the most important factor for Amazon and we are the guardians of it. The position has high impact and high visibility and offers opportunities in mobile as well as service management. Being an external facing component, it offers additional architectural and security challenges that are not associated with protected internal services.
We are looking for software engineers who thrive on complex problems and relish the challenge of operating a complex and mission critical system under extreme loads. Our systems manage hundreds of millions of customer records, and respond to millions of transactions per minute.
