Software Dev Engineer II

Job ID: 2666075 | Services LLC


Would you like to experience what it would have felt like to join Amazon in 1995? Do you want to join a team with experience launching complex and challenging projects? The Amazon International Emerging Stores (IES) team launched the business from the ground up and is making our products work for our customers in emerging marketplaces. We think big and develop platform solutions that can be extended to other marketplaces and new businesses.

“Amazon's motto may be customer obsession, but it has another infatuation — speed.”
“Amazon's brand identity has long rested on the promise of getting parcels to customers as quickly as possible.”

The IES team is defining, designing and developing a solution for a business initiative that will directly impact Amazon's top-line growth. Our development team will play a pivotal role in this program, with the mission to build a comprehensive solution for the new business initiative. This is a rare opportunity to be part of a team that will be responsible for building a successful and strategic business for Amazon, from the ground up!

Our engineers are top-notch software developers who love listening to the customers, working as a team, and proactively taking the lead whenever necessary. In this role, you will have an opportunity to own design and development of key parts of services. You will have influence on subsystem design and help contribute to a team culture around practices that are critical to a quality product.

We care about your career growth, too. Once you join the team, you and your manager will jointly craft a career plan and you’ll review it regularly to ensure you’re on track to meet your goals. Whether your goals are to explore new technologies, take on bigger problems, or get to the next level, we’ll help you get there. Our business is growing fast, and our people will grow with it.
