We are the engine that powers Amazon!
From massive scale, reliability and 'big data' challenges, to the customer interaction and innovation that powers new businesses across Amazon, the eCommerce Platform organization is at the heart of Amazon's growth and success. Our global systems are part of every purchase, every shipment, and every customer login. Our constant innovation enables businesses from Kindle and AWS to fulfillment to mobile. In addition to our platform services, we drive architectural changes across Amazon to keep the company moving at internet speed whether we want to launch a new country or a brand new website or move into entirely new forms of online commerce.

You will demonstrate your technical skills by influencing the team's technical direction through communication, collaboration and commitment to a high quality bar. Additionally, you will assess risks, anticipate bottlenecks, provide management of critical issues, make trade-offs and balance the business needs versus technical constraints to achieve business goals. You will have be detail driven and have excellent problem solving and program management skills. You should not only be passionate about delivering extensible, on-time solutions, but should also be obsessed with contributing to the development of high-performance teams through rigorous goal-setting, strict attention to performance metrics, continuous process improvement and mentorship.

From a business and technical perspective, you will:
- Have a consistent track record of shaping business strategy
