Job Description

From eCommerce to AWS to Kindle, Amazon has a history of innovation and invention. The People Technology group continues that tradition by focusing on building new ways for employees to interact with each other and Amazon’s distributed infrastructure.

People Technology is looking for engineers that want to work in a green field environment building large distributed systems that have high availability and scalability. They will be building systems that require both breadth and depth – identity stores that manage credentialing and permissions for critical data, orchestration and dynamic workflow systems to adjust to changing business needs, and frameworks to enable other teams to build clients and interfaces to other systems. For those engineers who enjoy working higher in stack there is work in both the UI and mobile space to support employees in the field.

We are currently hiring experienced technology professionals with an entrepreneurial spirit to get in on the ground-floor of this highly-visible opportunity. Teams in Boston, Vancouver and Seattle will lead this new work that support Amazon businesses to focus on what they do best: changing the world.
