The Royalties Teams
We didn’t make Amazon Music the business today, our listeners and content partners did. The Royalties teams are the bridge between every listener and every content partner of Amazon Music. We build systems that process every play activity on Amazon Music and strive to deliver accurate, complete and on-time payments to all our content partners. We stretch the limits of distributed systems and big data processing to solve some of the hardest technical problems and unprecedented scale challenges. To add to the excitement, we are building multiple products from scratch, where you really can be amongst the first employees in a well-funded, proven, highly technical, highly visible and business critical idea.
What will you do?
As a Software Development Engineer, you will be responsible for all aspects of product development. This not only includes design & coding of new architecture and services, but also helping define the strategic direction for such systems. We are building the systems from ground up, so we are not tied to any one technology. Helping select the right technologies and envisioning a long-term architecture is part of the role. So is working with multiple internal and external distributed services. Finally, this being a new team, you’ll have lots of opportunities to help us build & grow the team via mentoring, hiring & training.
