Join Amazon and enjoy Fridays off or shorter work days year-round! Amazon is piloting part-time teams in the People Tech group, where we are building high-visibility, enterprise-wide solutions, all on a 30-hour work week schedule. These solutions will be at the heart of workforce planning for one of the most innovative and fastest growing companies on Earth.

You understand back-end services and know how to conceptualize, design, implement, and fix them. You go through life thinking about how to use technology to solve problems. You live and breathe data analysis, and can succinctly and accurately report your findings.

Most importantly, you have a passion for learning and are driven to be the best at what you do.
