  • Job Description

    Are you interested in building a green field product for introducing advertising to Physical Stores? Do you want to have direct and immediate impact on millions of customers every day? If you are a self-starter, enjoy designing large scale distributed and orchestration systems, and are intrigued by ambiguous problems, look no further.
    This is a true "day one" opportunity to improve both a customer's digital and physical shopping experiences by developing advertising products that surprise and delight shoppers and advertisers alike. You will be building unique solutions to blend the online and offline shopping experiences at Amazon.
    We are looking for a seasoned SDE who is excited about building an industry leading, next generation advertising solution. In this role you will be responsible for the architecture, design and implementation of advertising solutions that span advertising and retail systems. This is a highly visible program across multiple organizations where you will have the opportunity to have a huge impact.
    The right candidate will possess strong technical skills, demonstrated experience leading medium to large distributed services, and will want to have a lasting impact in the Advertising space. You must be able to thrive and succeed in an entrepreneurial environment, and not be hindered by ambiguity or competing priorities. This means you are not only able to develop and drive high-level strategic initiatives, but can also roll up your sleeves, dig in and get the job done.
    You must be able to communicate up, down, and out to technical and business leaders. You must be able to successfully drive, architect and build the cloud service based on the vision, anticipate bottlenecks, and balance the business needs against technical constraints. You must be able to take large, complex problems and break them down into manageable micro services, then deliver them in a successful and timely manner. Being a self starter, showing maturity, high judgment, negotiation skills, ability to influence, analytical talent and leadership are essential to success in this role. This is a unique and rare opportunity to get in on the ground floor and help shape our Advertising technologies, products and business. A successful candidate will bring broad technical and deep software expertise and an ability to technically lead a team in a fast moving, startup environment in a large company to own and operate systems with a significant business impact.
