Our team blends blend of a variety of disciplines (such as data mining, machine learning, big data, or, cloud computing) in an effort to understand our customers and the things that excite them. For example: “Harry Potter” is a fictional universe based around a series of books, and “Harry Potter Wands” are essential costume components. And we don’t just build data: we’re looking for developers with Web & App development experience to help us find new ways to interact with our customers. Our goal is to create a personalized experience for them that will make them want to return over and over again.
We are a team dedicated to understanding What Makes Stuff (And People) Awesome. Amazon customers are people with hobbies, passions, and quirky interests. They may run barefoot marathons, brew beer, cry during Disney movies, play in a swing band, or all of the above. We’re looking for inquisitive developers who want to help us understand the world and the people in it.
How do you build software that understands things? How do you know who loves what? Did Joe Customer buy a blender because a) he loves whole-food smoothies, b) he’s equipping his apartment or c) his cheap college blender burst into flames and nearly burned down the dorm? Answering those questions is exciting – especially the pyrotechnic blender part – and that’s why we think this is one of the most interesting teams at Amazon.
