The Site Tools team provides tools for developing, creating, and managing what customers see on all Amazon sites. Our customers are website designers, development teams, and site merchandisers: They use our team's software to create and customize text, pictures, rich media, and all manner of dynamic content widgets. Once this is done, our scheduling and content-delivery systems go to work, ensuring that the right pieces of content appear on the right web pages, in the right places at the right times. Our customers always have access to content performance data, so that they can respond to rapidly changing business needs. Our team's products are engineered with reuse and extensibility in mind, and many other teams have incorporated our APIs into their own products. The work that we do directly affects Amazon's bottom line, by driving millions in revenue annually.
Ideal candidates are self-motivating, have solid object-oriented development skills, and have experience working in both front-end, back end and mobile technologies. Site Tools is seeking software developers who possess the ability to act as technical leads throughout the development process and help evolve our tools for tomorrow.
