Job description


At Amazon Prime Video, we're fundamentally changing the way millions of customers access, consume and interact with video content worldwide. Inventing on behalf of our customers is in our DNA: Prime Video, X-Ray and Amazon Studio Originals are just a few of the features and capabilities that delight our customers. It's a green-field space overdue for disruption and we'd like you to join us in our mission to enable everyone to search, discover, consume and interact with video content anytime, anywhere and on any device.

We're looking for a great software engineer to help us build a new generation of partner-facing tools and services, that scale to meet our ambitious goals for supporting Prime Video on every device that a customer wants to watch on. Your contribution will help deliver worldwide distribution of our Prime Video experience for customers using devices like smart TVs, games consoles and set-top streaming boxes.
The role provides an opportunity to contribute to world class test automation, building on the latest advances in image recognition, machine learning and distributed services. You'll be joining an agile team with engineers from a broad range of backgrounds, who collaborate and share their expertise across a wide range of technologies, from micro-services on AWS, to low-level high-performance embedded code, to designing testability into our core technology. As a software development engineer you'll be responsible for contributing across our product life-cycle, from determining requirements, defining system architectures, implementing tools and services, to building instrumentation to help us measure and test our hypotheses.

If you are passionate about taking your coding and software engineering skills to the next level, excited about the opportunity to work closely with partners across the globe, and enjoy immersing yourself in the latest digital video experiences, we might be the right place for you.
