Amazon Devices is seeking a software development engineer to join a small, high growth, and early stage team for a new strategic initiative. You will be instrumental in building our first prototype and launch product. The ideal candidate is an innovative self-starter who is looking for an opportunity to be both an individual contributor and technical lead. You are excited to do whatever it takes to make this new product successful and seeking an opportunity to help grow a team.
You will be working with a cross functional team of machine learning scientists, engineers, product managers, business development leads, and economists. You will build scalable solutions incorporating cutting edge machine learning algorithms, big data, sensors, smart home devices, cloud services, and Alexa skills.
This is an early stage initiative with a fast paced, highly collaborative start up like environment inside Amazon. To be successful you need to be flexible and entrepreneurial, comfortable operating with ambiguity and willing to develop quick proof of concepts. You are a true owner - you are passionate about the potential customer and societal impact and will operate at all levels, diving deep into the details while providing strategic inputs for the product.
We are building backend services, frontend UIs, apps, skills, scalable algorithms, and prototypes. You don’t need to be an expert in all of these, but the right candidate is excited and willing to learn to take on these challenges.
Software Engineers at Amazon do so much more than just software development. We'll be looking at you to help:
- Decide what features to build.
- Drive software engineering best practice.
- Design distributed and scalable systems.
- Test and document the software you develop.
