    In 2019, consumers are projected to take over a trillion photos and videos, and Amazon Photos is one of Amazon's newest and fastest growing Prime benefits. It is helping customers enjoy and share their most cherished digital assets. We store hundreds of petabytes of data while building products that make it easy for customers to protect and organize what matters to them, no matter the device or platform that content lives on.

In addition, you will be working with applied data scientists on hard problems related to Computer Vision. You must be willing to insist on the highest standards for quality, maintainability, and performance. You will ensure that engineering best practices are followed and that software is designed to be highly available, dynamically scalable, and maintainable.

    You will drive architectural and design choices and invent new features. We have a team culture that encourages innovation and we expect developers and management alike to take a high level of ownership for the product vision, technical architecture, and project delivery. Successful candidates will be high-bandwidth leaders who can cut through the noise, simplify relentlessly, deliver results, and build great teams around themselves.

    What you will get from us:
    A great team to work with and the chance to build a top tier premier service at a proven top tier company. You will be a key part of a team that delivers great software and has a great time doing so. We believe in work life balance, recognizing contributions, sharing ideas, fun outside of work, and waffles every Wednesday. You will join a startup like culture with the stability of an established industry leader. You will build relationships with some of the smartest people in the industry to continue your personal growth. You will build software that will improve people’s lives.
