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 Stations, 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 system handles 10s of millions of calls per day across thousands of stations for Amazon Music's millions of customers around the world. On top of this layer we are building systems to manage, monitor, and action hundreds of simultaneous experiments across all stations. Everything we build is full continuous deployment and requires a high level of automated testing, mostly developed in Java or Ruby on Rails, though we focus on using the right tools to get the job done.
