Job Description

Do you want to define the future of Internet commerce?
Are you a top-notch software engineer with a creative flare, strong problem-solving skills, the drive to build and ship products often, a solid computer science foundation, and the desire to build Amazon's next generation Internet-facing technology? Come talk with us about joining our team to expand Internet commerce.
Is your next project defining a world class Internet service?
With us, you will be building cutting-edge applications and services in an environment of highly distributed systems used by millions of sellers and even more millions of retail customers. Your innovation could provide new functionality for sellers, expand mobile device usage for retail customers, deploy new web standards, or expand Amazon's web services with the goal of making it as easy for anyone to sell on Amazon as it is to buy from Amazon.
Are you ready to create systems to expand one of the world's largest eCommerce engines?
If so, come be a member of Amazon™ Merchant Technologies team. Our software engineers design and build world-class software solutions for millions of sellers from around the globe to sell on Amazon.com. Your work will be powering the Amazon online marketplaces in many countries and continents.
Can you work at the scale of the biggest Internet companies?
The solutions that you will deploy must scale to accommodate rapid processing and integration with large enterprise customers. However, to add to the challenge, the solutions must also support intuitive world class UI for your neighbor to sell extra books, video games, photography equipment, and the largest selection of possible products that can be found anywhere.
Bought something on Amazon lately?
Selling on Amazon is one of the fastest growing businesses at Amazon.com with about one-third of all items currently sold originating from marketplace sellers. Have you ever noticed the "See more buying choices" or "New & Used offers" while you are shopping on Amazon? Maybe you've sold an old textbook or extra movie yourself. The Merchant Technologies team owns services that enable that functionality and more. When you sell, you make money. The Seller Payments team is responsible for providing financial and accounting tools for Amazon's third party sellers. It's not an easy task, accounting never is, but we want to make it a no-brainer for our customers to run their growing business on Amazon. If you're one of those engineers who took a business class in college for fun, and enjoy working with the latest technologies I think you would love working in Amazon Marketplace.

Amazon is a premier place to build, deploy and operate Internet-scale services.
Join our development team to work hard, have fun and make history. You will join a highly technical and entrepreneurial culture defining and building a selling experience to complement Amazon's™ world-class websites.
