Amazon Music Stations is growing, and growing fast. To support this increase in customers, we're building large scale, robust, high throughput systems with a low cost of maintenance, using the best technologies and techniques at hand.
We spend our time on things that matter to customers--not the muck of managing systems. We're a growing team, but we are still focused on keeping operations low. We spend our time on what's special for Amazon Music, and use off the shelf AWS products for the rest, such as EC2, EMR, RDS, S3, SQS, SNS, and DynamoDB.
If you love building first-in-class systems and services, this is the team for you. Our systems enable music experts worldwide to define station algorithms, perform predictive assessments, and automate managing thousands of playlists for our millions of customers around the world. Everything we build is full continuous deployment and requires a high level of automated testing, mostly developed in Ruby on Rails, though we focus on using the right tools to get the job done.
You are a talented, detail-oriented, and enthusiastic Software Development Engineer who is passionate about the customer and loves building great new systems. You will have the opportunity to contribute your creative ideas and energy to Amazon Music. Duties include research, design, and implementation of new systems and software algorithms, testing their best ideas against Amazon's legions of music customers, and being a key part of delivering a great new service.
