We operate on a massive scale (processing over 10B new events per day); and collaborate with teams and services across Amazon to ingest additional customer insight data. Our measurement team is focused on understanding the impact Amazon’s digital advertising has on our customers and how we can improve relevance and discoverability of new products. We work with open source technologies such as Hadoop, Hive, Spark, and Presto, as well as AWS services like Elastic Map Reduce, Redshift, Kinesis, and DynamoDB.
