Software Development Engineer Intern (2018)


London, United Kingdom


Team: Alexa Shopping

About the role:

We are looking for talented, motivated candidates to join us as Software Development Engineer interns during summer 2018.

During your internship with Alexa Shopping, you will help us create new ways to interact, search and shop to develop the next generation of shopping experiences.

Alexa Shopping enables customers to instantly order whatever they need, by simply interacting with their Smart Devices such as Echo or Fire TV. Our Services allow you to shop, no matter where you are or what you are doing; you can go from 'I want that' to 'that's on the way' in a matter of seconds.

You will define and implement components responsible for providing new and innovative mobile and device experiences for our customers. You will build and operate scalable services while also developing delightful app experiences. You will have an impact on Amazon's new devices and the way shopping is done in the area of IoT. Finally you will have the satisfaction of being able to look back and say you were a key contributor to something special from its earliest stages.

Development Opportunities:

As an intern you will go through induction training before joining your team. 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 retailers.
