  • Job Description

    For millions of customers worldwide, the Amazon name is synonymous with delivery and the Delivery Experience (DEX) team provides those customers with innovative ways to get what they want and need, enabling the choices they make on every order, every day. We combine customer impact with retail invention, solving huge technical challenges along the way. DEX defines, builds, launches and manages customer-facing delivery programs and features across all of Amazon, including Prime 2-day shipping, Prime FREE Same-Day Delivery, One-Day Shipping, No Rush, Free Shipping over $25, and inventions yet to come. We own systems that power retail delivery (both customer-facing and back-end), leveraging company-wide technology solutions or designing them from the ground up. Together, DEX is changing how customers experience delivery from the speed, convenience, and selection features they see on the site every day, to launching Prime delivery benefits and other new programs to customers around the world.
    Who are we? We are a diverse product and engineering team that owns the software stack that drives this highly innovative program.

You will provide both strategic and tactical oversight to build the features and functionality required to have the world's best online shopping and delivery experience. If you are excited by the opportunity to lead a high performing engineering team in a startup mode, this may be the right career move for you. We operate as a start-up within Amazon, providing great flexibility in product and technology direction.
    As a Software Development Manager, you will lead a team to engineer, scale, and optimize large scale distributed systems. You will collaborate with technical teams and business owners within fulfillment, website platform, and retail services to build solutions for our customers.
