Software Development Engineer


London, United Kingdom


Personalized Vending and Promotions
Our mission in the Personalized Vending and Promotions (PVP) team, part of the Amazon Video Commercial Experiences organization, is to enable people globally to watch video on their own terms by delivering the most valuable personalized offers and promotions in the world. We own the business logic that identifies and surfaces the best options to buy, rend or subscribe to Amazon Video, and innovate constantly to promote a variety of offers to our customers.
What will you be working on?
You will be mostly developing backend services to provide innovative offers (tiered, promotional, bundled etc.) to millions of Amazon customers worldwide. You will also be developing the necessary tooling and UI to ensure our internal customers can self-serve and onboard seamlessly. You’ll get to build on top of Amazon’s vast development infrastructure, including AWS as well as internal leading-edge tools for setting up continuous deployment, real-time monitoring and management of fleets with hundreds of servers. You will be owning the design, implementation and operation of business-critical services with world-class scalability, availability and latency requirements. Finally, you will be working closely with several teams in London and Seattle to get a deep understanding of both the Amazon Video business and the supporting services infrastructure.
What is our stack?
In Amazon, software engineers own the tech; in PVP this is even more the case. It is up to you to introduce new technology that will help us innovate rapidly, without compromising our quality. You will be expected to help shape the engineering vision of our platform going forward.
Our current stack is using a microservices architecture based on Amazon’s next-generation internal service framework. Our backend services are built in Java 8, with a strong flavor of functional programming. We are using NoSQL databases, including DynamoDB, to support several thousands transactions per second.
What do we offer?
As you will be working on one of the hottest projects in Amazon Video, writing code that will be used by millions, we offer you the chance to have a real impact on the way Amazon customers worldwide watch video. Our expanding organization provides unique opportunities to present your ideas, demonstrate your skills and advance your career. Finally, you will have the chance to learn from our senior engineers and, depending on your level, to coach more junior developers.
