At Amazon Video, we're fundamentally changing the way millions of customers access, consume and interact with video content worldwide. Inventing on behalf of our customers is in our DNA: Prime Video, X-Ray, Amazon Studio Originals (The Grand Tour, The Man in the High Castle, Transparent, Shaun the Sheep) and add-on subscriptions (Showtime, Starz, Comedy Central) are just a few of the features and capabilities that delight our customers. It's a green-field space overdue for disruption and we'd like you to join us in our mission to enable everyone to search, discover, consume and interact with video content anytime, anywhere and on any device.
We're looking for talented, motivated Software Development Engineer Graduates to build the services that power all of Amazon Video devices and web globally. As an Amazon software engineer you will design, develop, test, and run operations for core platform services. A successful candidate will have a strong technical ability to develop services for consumer-facing products, excellent organizational skills, great communication skills, a motivation to achieve results in a fast-paced environment, and, of course, a passion for TV and film.
If you are graduating in 2017 and have an interest in building large-scale, high-performance, customer-centric products and think end-to-end, this may be the job you've been looking for.
Since we have a wide variety of projects and technologies, we are looking for different profiles, from engineers interested in front-end development (for our hybrid mobile applications and website) to back-end engineers to develop the systems that power our warehouse (focused in solving complex multi-objective resource allocation problems), including machine learning engineers for our recommendation or fraud detection systems.
We care about your career growth, too. Once you join the team, you and your manager will jointly craft a career plan and you'll review it regularly to ensure you're on track to meet your goals. Whether your goals are to explore new technologies, take on bigger problems, or get to the next level, we'll help you get there. Our business is growing fast, and our people will grow with it.
As a new graduate you will join your team at Amazon Video between August and October 2017, and will go through induction training. You will drive your own learning and development with guidance and coaching from your manager, buddy and colleagues around you - not to mention the excellent long-term development prospects you'd expect from one of the world's leading online businesses.
We will also make sure you're well rewarded. We offer a competitive salary, stock units and a range of other benefits (including healthcare and an employee discount), in addition to a study support package and the excellent long-term development prospects you'd expect from one of the world's leading online retailers.
