Are you passionate about working on features millions of people use?

We're looking for bold, intellectually curious engineers who like hard problems. You're going to change the face of online video.

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 at our core: Prime Video, X-Ray and Amazon Studio Originals (The Grand Tour, The Man in the High Castle, Transparent, Shaun the Sheep..) 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.

The team is chartered to design large scale systems to power Amazon Video viewed by a massive audience daily, and you will help bring customers streaming video view experience to a new level. You will develop the service to run on Amazon's cloud computing infrastructure (AWS) and have opportunities to interact with teams inside and outside the organization.

As a Software Development Engineer you will contribute to the design of high-impact new automated tools and other test investments that help maintain the quality of the Amazon Video platforms. You will have an established track record in launching highly available customer-facing services and experiences, deep technical ability, solid communication skills, an ability and a dream to achieve results in a rapidly changing environment, high creativity and, of course, a real passion for bringing extraordinary entertainment experience to Amazon customers.
