Device Lab Tech


London, United Kingdom


Amazon Video is known for its ground-breaking impact, and in case you think there is nothing more to do, then think again. We are building a new global innovation platform designed to transform how we develop, test, verify and automate against Amazon Video physical devices. With hundreds of devices currently supported, and many more being certified in the future, we are changing how we work with devices to ensure that even at this scale we can assure the exceptional customer experience at all times.

Amazon Video product teams are continually striving to deliver more features, and platform improvements, faster through CI/CD delivery platforms. With platform complexity increasing and aggressive increases in the number of customer device types, our ability to test on customer devices has understandably struggled to keep up.

Join us on a mission to change that!

We are designing the next generation cloud platform for both physical and virtual Amazon Video devices.

As we work from the physical tiers onto micro-processors and right through to rack capacity, we will be building custom solutions from the hardware systems to the contention management software. We aim to take away the complexity of device management, so that it can become a plug-and-play global network of self-managing, and self-healing, capacity.

Amazon Development Centre London is seeking a Device Lab Technician to join our expanding organization. If you like getting yours hands dirty, working with cutting edge entertainment hardware, and shipping product, then this is the place to be.
