We are building the next generation of products and services that will fuel the growth of Amazon’s advertising business. We leverage Amazon's unique customer data, exclusive inventory, and first-class technology to differentiate itself within a competitive and growing landscape of programmatic advertising.

    • Be an early adopter of emerging AWS technologies for AdTech use cases.
    • Think out of the box!
    Joining this team, you’ll experience the benefits of working in a dynamic, fast-paced environment, while leveraging the resources of Amazon.com (AMZN), one of the world's leading Internet companies. We provide a highly customer-centric, team-oriented environment in our offices located in Palo Alto, California.
