Amazon.com is sending hiring managers from our Merchant Applications Teams to interview candidates in Atlanta, in mid-February, for Seattle-based positions.
Did you know that Amazon.com has hundreds of software engineers working on some of the most interesting technical challenges on the planet?
Amazon.com, headquartered in beautiful Seattle, is looking for exceptional software engineers to join its growing technology organization. Our engineering teams work on tough technical problems that engage and stretch their brains. As an engineer here, you might build cutting edge product recommendation algorithms, scale and optimize our world class supply chain systems, or architect and build an end-to-end e-commerce platform that companies like Target and Toys R Us use to run their online businesses. You'll work with smart, experienced teammates on a small cross-functional team. You'll join a scientific culture focused on achieving aggressive goals. And, you'll work on creating a world-class experience for the millions of people who use Amazon.com.
Millions of merchants leverage our platform to make Amazon.com the one stop shop for customers to find the best deal. Hundreds of millions of unique merchant updates, including price, and inventory data, flow through our systems every day. We develop massively distributed request/reply caches which service billions of requests per day from both our customer-facing website and external clients via Web Services. Price is a very popular data point on the world's largest E-Commerce platform so accuracy and response time are critical. In addition to the end to end data management problem, we help customers discover the best product deal. In real-time, we look at numerous inputs such as merchant trust rating, price, and availability, to decide which offer is best for an individual customer. Our engineers obsess about seller and customer experience, are Linux systems-savvy and find elegant solutions for problems of unprecedented scale.
Candidates should also have strong:
* C++ and/or Java development and object-oriented design experience
* Development experience in a UNIX or Linux environment
* Excellent problem solving and troubleshooting skills
* Passion for big, difficult problems
* BS/MS/PhD in Computer Science or equivalent.
It would be great if you also had:
* experience with publish/subscribe or other event messaging technologies
* developed client/server development
* previously designed and built large distributed systems.
If you're interested in meeting with our team while we're in Atlanta, please send your resume and cover letter to yoonie at amazon.com.
work hard. have fun. make history.
