We're shaping the future of engineering - one sprint at a time


Does this define you?
You are a lead engineer who has led large engineering efforts in architecture, design, implementation and deployment of successful, business critical systems. You are technically hands-on and you have a passion to work on game-changing technology solutions. You enjoy simplifying solutions with innovation and hand-crafting code for the systems that you own. 

Amazon simplified for you
We are a company where builders build. We are not tied to one technology -- instead, we use what is best suited for the purpose. We have motivated, collaborative and fun-loving teams in a fast paced environment. We have the satisfaction of seeing our work impact hundreds of millions of Amazon customers and thousands of Amazon merchants in several countries.                                                

Problems and areas we work on include
Problems of scale, SOA, big data problems, complex data processing and decision problems. We use high-performance transactions systems, complex rendering and object caching, workflow and queuing systems, business intelligence and data analytics, machine learning and pattern recognition, neural networks and probabilistic decision making and a wide variety of other techniques. While many of our systems are based on the latest in computer science research, this often hasn’t been sufficient: our engineers have had to advance research in directions that academics has not yet taken. Many of the problems we face have no textbook solutions and so we happily invent new ones.
