Prime Video is changing the way customers watch TV and movies. With Prime Video, customers have instant access to a massive library of popular content across hundreds of devices, including smart TVs, game consoles, mobile devices, browsers, and streaming media players like Fire TV and Apple TV. Prime customers can watch thousands of titles included with Prime; customers can also subscribe to popular channels like HBO and Starz as well as buy/rent thousands of new release videos.

We work closely with teams across Prime Video and Alexa to invent and launch innovative new features and experiences.

We are looking for engineers who are passionate about video and voice and are excited about joining a new team in a fast-moving space.
