Amazon.com has launched a new service called Transparency which is sold to popular brands who seek to prevent counterfeit items from entering the supply chain. It’s Day 1 for this new service and we’re looking to build a team who want to be part of solving a 1.7 Trillion dollar global, retail industry challenge. This service is intended to address global counterfeit concerns across all retail channels.
Goal of this team is to build a new software service that allows brands and manufacturers to prevent counterfeit items from entering the supply the chain. The vision for this service is to be the standard for global, retail agnostic, track and trace and beyond Amazon scale. It will disrupt the way consumers search for products based on their authenticity and transparency in origin and materials used in manufacturing.
You will be part of building a highly scalable service and redefining industry standards for item level tracing. You will also gain exposure to various AWS services that this service is being built on, such as: DynamoDB, Redshift, Lambda, Firehose, S3/Glacier, Cognito, SNS and others. This service is also integrated with various Amazon internal systems workflows related to Vendors, Sellers and Fulfillment technologies as well as direct customer facing systems such as product detail pages and the Amazon shopping app.
We are looking for a strong technical leader to drive efforts to build a brand new product that will become a new business for Amazon.
As the Software Development Manager, you will define software architecture, and guide a team of developers to implement it with you. You will work closely with your product and development counterparts to make sure we incorporate customer input into our new service and define requirements to meet technical options. In addition, you will coordinate software development across multiple teams, ensuring our service and other Amazon services are designed to work in conjunction. Since this is a new business area for Amazon, you will have a unique opportunity to define our system, architecture and product from infancy, turning a vision into a live product.
