Job Description

We're a part of Amazon, they are our parent company and it's a great partnership. You'll get to play with all of Amazon's technologies like EC2, SQS and S3 but it doesn't stop there. Audible's built on Amazon technology and you'll have insight into the inner workings of the world's leading ecommerce experience. There's a LOT to learn! Your career will benefit from working with teams like Kindle, A9, P13N and many more.

  • Partner with product management to imagine, design, develop, test, and launch software that wows our community and inspires our peers.
  • Be willing to explore and learn un-prompted. Bring problems AND solutions to the table.
