Job Description

WWhat is Amazon's Advertising business like? Amazon is investing heavily in building a world class Advertising business where we run relevant display ads on key locations across our Retail website (e.g. amazon.com), Retail Mobile Shopping Apps, Devices (e.g. Kindle, Fire Tablet, Fire TV, Echo, etc), Third Party websites (e.g. nytimes.com) and Third Party Mobile Apps. The goal of our Advertising program is to drive brand awareness, product discovery and product sales.
What is your team responsible for?
Our team (Display Advertising Customer Experience aka DACX) is responsible for the front-end platform (running on Node.js) that powers the ad content and landing pages (that ads click to) across our advertising network. The front-end platform consists of tools (used by designers - both internal and external) and services (used by developers within Advertising) to implement unique types of ads and landing pages.
What is your team's impact like?
Our team's tools are used by hundreds of designers and our services are responsible for rendering billions of ad & landing page requests each day. Our team also runs one of the largest eCommerce advertising programs in the world using this front-end platform, as a means to demonstrate and further the platform's capabilities.
If I were hired, what would I be working on?
We are building out the next generation of our platform that can handle 10x the current scale and enables designers & developers to build beautiful ads with minimal-to-no effort that can work for multiple different sizes, devices and environments. This is a large initiative that spans across multiple teams within the Advertising org.
Why should I join your team?
This is a unique opportunity to work with some of the best front-end engineers at Amazon (and probably in the world) and one of the best teams at Amazon (rated very highly in a company-wide yearly assessment), work on a new initiative from scratch that is going to become a huge area of growth for Amazon's Advertising business and pioneer the usage of modern front-end technology at Amazon scale.
Join today and you will transform how customers discover and shop at Amazon!
