You will solve technical challenges in optimization, live streaming, large-scale computing, distributed systems, web applications, scalability, security, and algorithms just to name a few. You will drive future solutions that will impact how we run Amazon Video and interface with many teams. In addition to this, you’ll need to be able to influence and deliver exceptional user experiences across multiple platforms including mobile, living room devices, and the web. You will also need to frequently engage business, product and technology leaders and be a strong advocate for our customers.
