Our mission: To be Earth's most customer-centric company.
Come build the future of entertainment with us.
Are you interested in shaping the future of movies and television? Do you want to define the next generation of how and what Amazon customers are watching?
Amazon’s Prime Video is a premium streaming service that offers customers a vast collection of TV shows and movies – all with the ease of finding what they love to watch in one place. We offer customers thousands of popular movies and TV shows from Originals and Exclusive content to exciting live sports events. We also offer our members the opportunity to subscribe to add-on channels which they can cancel at anytime and to rent or buy new release movies and TV box sets on the Prime Video Store. Prime Video is a fast-paced, growth business – available in over 240 countries and territories worldwide. The team works in a dynamic environment where innovating on behalf of our customers is at the heart of everything we do.
Key job responsibilities
We are looking for Software Development Engineers to join the Video Commerce Workflow team. We are building a core set of Commerce-as-a-Service capabilities that allow Prime Video and other Amazon teams (like Twitch’s gaming services) to deliver, personalise and transact subscriptions, rentals and purchases for our customers. We leverage industry leading technologies to enhance customer experience on mobile, big screen, web browsers, Amazon and non-Amazon living room devices.
We are seeking team players with interest in developing reusable software components and building globally scalable and resilient solutions, analytical and communication skills, motivation and tenacity to deliver results in a fast-paced environment, and, of course, a passion for TV and films.
A day in the life
In our day-to-day, we typically meet up the team (virtually and in person) as part of our agile ceremonies (like daily huddles, fortnightly story refinement, estimation, prioritisation and planning, and retros), technical approach and design reviews, knowledge sharing sessions, and project meetings. We fill most of our days with designing and building capabilities, as well as continuously improving our services and operations, having fun and maintaining work and life harmony for longer-term team sustainability. We encourage sharing thoughts and ideas and strive to create an inclusive environment where team members feel confident in speaking our minds up.
