The Role
As a Senior Engineer, you will help create the technical Road Map, architect the software system design, and plan for scalability.

You will get a chance to develop in a variety of exciting new fields, including natural language processing, machine learning, advanced animation systems and more.

This job will challenge you on various fronts – you’ll need to have the ability to understand what it takes to launch large scale services and features that involve multiple teams. You will solve technical challenges in optimization, large-scale computing, distributed systems, web applications, scalability, security and algorithms just to name a few.

You will have direct ownership over the design and architecture of new components aimed at creating new shopping experiences. We’re looking for a Senior Software Engineer, someone with a demonstrated track record of highly-scalable, global software solutions.

In addition to this, you will influence and deliver exceptional user experiences across multiple platforms including mobile, home devices, and the web.

Your role is to:
  • Work with key stakeholders to define strategy and requirements
  • Lead cross functional development on new technology
  • Work with remote teams to deliver supporting software and services
  • Communicate regularly with senior management

Basic Qualifications

  • Experience in software development
  • Architecture experience
  • Understanding of highly scalable web services and systems
  • Passion for understanding ambiguous, complex problems and driving innovative, clean technical solutions
  • Strong object-oriented design and coding skills (the language of your choice!), and fundamentals in data structures, algorithms, and complexity analysis
  • Ability to mentor small teams of SW developers

Preferred Qualifications

  • Strong technical judgment, creative thinker with a focus on the user
  • Deep understanding of software engineering best practices, OOD, design patterns and algorithms
  • Excellent written and verbal communication
