Amazon Video is disrupting traditional media with an ever-increasing selection of movies, TV shows, Emmy Award winning original content, add-on subscriptions including HBO, and live events like Thursday Night Football. Our architecture operates at exabyte-scale, engineered for reliability, scalability, and performance. Amazon Video runs on thousands of device types in over 200 territories worldwide.
The Playback Optimization team designs, implements, and operates the systems responsible for delivering video streams from the Cloud to Amazon Video customers. Our services direct gigabits of video data across the Internet every second, maximizing the viewing experience for our customers.
Our architecture serves billions of requests per day, with obsessively high reliability and low operational overhead. We leverage Amazon Web Services (AWS) technologies including AWS CloudFront, EC2, S3, DynamoDB, Lambda, Kinesis, Athena, and internal AWS incubator technologies.
Successful candidates have a solid background in modern programming languages, distributed system design, service-oriented architecture, and high scalability. Experience in large-scale networking, machine learning technologies and big data is a plus. Equally important is the ability to multi-task, invent, create reliable and maintainable code, and find creative, scalable solutions to difficult problems.
