Job Description


Amazon is looking for Software Development Engineers to join a highly innovative team that is building brand new, mission critical software for millions of Amazon customers. Prime Now provides Amazon Prime members unparalleled convenience and ease of mind by offering one-hour, ultra fast delivery as well as two-hour scheduled delivery of tens and thousands of essential products.

As a developer on the team you’ll drive improvements to our technology, collaborating with sharp engineers and highly-engaged users to ship code continuously. We have many domains ranging from highly-scalable transactional backend systems, to complex optimization problems, to customer facing mobile app. So, if you love building world-class software of any time, most likely we have a place for you.

We’re truly an Agile shop: we work closely with users, deliver features with high frequency, can pivot on a dime when needed, and are aggressive about test coverage, refactoring, and paying off technical debt. We use a broad array of technologies (from Swift to Scala, from NoSQL to JAX-RS) picking the right tool for the job at hand.

If this speaks to you, please apply now to be considered for our hiring event! The event will take place in New York City on May 24th through the 25th, so you must be available during that time to interview. You must also be interested in relocating – we have openings in Seattle and are looking for engineers who are open to this location.
