Are you interested in shaping the future of movies, television, and digital video? Do you want to define the next generation of how and what Amazon customers are watching? We have recently launched Prime Video Central, a new platform that enables content providers worldwide, from independent filmmakers to the largest studios, self-service tooling and automation to easily manage and make their content available to Amazon customers globally, including millions of Prime members. Video Central provides the key foundation for Prime Video strategy to truly scale content acquisition and ingestion globally. We are growing quickly and need your passion, innovative ideas, and creativity to help continue to deliver on our ambitious goals.
Content partners on Prime Video vary from independent filmmakers to global major motion picture and TV studios who manage their deliveries, metadata, assets, and business performance with Video Central. The systems, applications, and APIs that support content providers operate at a large scale, must be highly available and work on increasingly diverse systems securely. We are looking for creative, deeply technical and hands-on Software Engineers to take the Video Central architectures and systems we are building to the next level. We have an ambitious charter, and on this team you will be able to get your hands on lots of technologies. We use AWS technologies for most of our stack, including data storage in S3, DynamoDB, SNS, SQS etc.
At Amazon, every engineer has the opportunity to positively impact millions of customers, and you will be called on to identify and realize these opportunities. Once you join the team, you and your manager will jointly craft a career plan and you will review it regularly to ensure you have the opportunities to meet your goals. Whether your goals are to learn new technologies, design systems that can scale and take on bigger problems, we will help you get there. Our business is growing fast, and our people will grow with it.
