Come help us to build a world-class Public API framework as part of one of Amazon's fastest growing strategic businesses; Performance Advertising. Our global platform provides self-service low-latency systems at massive scale for Sponsored Brands and Sponsored Products.

Our products are strategically important to our Retail and Marketplace businesses driving long term growth, and as such our organization's initiatives are highly visible to Amazon's executive leadership. We are growing at an unprecedented rate with a seemingly endless range of new opportunities, and have been a broad mandate to aggressively experiment and innovate.

We are looking for a Software Development Engineer to participate in the full development lifecycle of Amazon's public Advertising API framework. These services are instrumental to enabling advertisers and their partners to easily create, manage and optimize advertising campaigns through programmatic and file-based interfaces.

Such services are at the core of Amazon's plans to scale its advertising programs. Our aspiration is to build the fastest and most reliable API in the business.

You will work closely with peer engineers and upstream advertising platform teams to expose internal system capabilities to the outside world in a fashion that accommodates extreme load and latency requirements. You'll work on the design and implementation of all aspects of the API service, and influence and even re-architect platform services to operate at significantly larger scale than ever anticipated. You'll have a direct impact on your customers and the opportunity to work closely with external integrators of the API.

The ideal candidate will be passionate about quality, consistency, maintainability, performance, security and all the other things that make great software great. You will own the design and implementation of major deliverables end-to-end. This position requires collaboration with product managers, technical program managers and partner teams, necessitating a comfort-level with ambiguity and a desire to create, iterate and improve.
