Software Development Engineers at Amazon are more than just order takers; they see a problem and leverage innovative technology to address it. We're looking for people who innovate, love solving hard problems, and never take "no" for an answer.
We are looking for an experienced, innovative, results-oriented Software Development Engineer for The Amazon Social Shopping Profile Team. The Profile team facilitates customers to manage their social identity on Amazon. It acts as a central hub for all social experiences on Amazon, propelling the shift to Profile Engagement. The Team acts as the custodian of the Profile experience, maintaining a high bar for visual and IA consistency, regardless of whether the Profile experience is rendered on our own platform or that of another team.
We’re a strong team of engineers, product managers, and UX designers focused on delivering features that customers find useful to their Amazon Social Shopping experience. We believe that all entities take pride in their Profile and regularly use it as a way to manage their Social Identity on Amazon. Our platforms will enable discoverability and engagement through search, follow, badging, achievements and managing core Social experiences like Household, Pets, Automotive, Gifting, Idealists, Wishlists, Product Reviews and Product Q&A. Entities will think of their Profile as a critical component of the Amazon ecosystem, not only due to its navigational utility, but also because it is a central hub for many social experiences. We plan to create incentives and reward systems to recognize entities who positively contribute to helping Amazon remain the preferred shopping destination for customers.
The Profile is evolving to be the central hub of the Amazon social ecosystem. While it’s been around for a while, it is being rewritten from the ground up to support the growing social aspects of shopping on Amazon. We are currently working on improving Profile Activity timeline which will provide visitors a central place to see and manage all social contributions of a Profile. We work on the aspects of Profile experience, solving how to give customers the best tools for controlling their identity to the Amazon community. Customers may upload a profile photo and cover photo to customize their Profiles, complete their bio and enrich their profile by adding personalized information, and control the visibility of their community contributions. We recently launched Profile Search indexing 500+ million profiles and their attributes and continuously adding enhancements to it, which help customers find profiles they are interested in more easily. We work on Amazon Follow, which serves as the connective foundation that allows customers to discover and engage with content from entities such as brands, authors, and other customers they are interested in. In 2017, we launched Verified Profiles, which provides entities like brands, authors, influencers, vendors, sellers an upgraded Profile experience and help connect more effectively with their customers as their social contributions are marked as authentic and original. Together, this creates a flywheel, that when fully executed, forms a continuous loop of benefit for followers and followees. Profiles create rich and engaging content, which is shared with followers via follow updates which reinforce the value of that follow connection. Our vision is to empower all Amazon entities (customers, brands, sellers, and other influencers) to deepen social connections and build their audience on Amazon, in order to help shoppers with discovery and post-purchase enjoyment of their products.
