Amazon Mobile is one of our fastest growing strategic new businesses focused on mobile commerce. We build, launch and manage Amazon’s business on mobile websites and apps across all smartphone and tablet surfaces. Our team is responsible for creating the best shopping experience for customers wherever they go on their favorite mobile devices. To do so, we build core shopping features and invent new and innovative ways for customers to interact with Amazon on their mobile devices.
We solve interesting, real-world challenges - from optimizing content for small screen sizes, developing new ways to shop using mobile devices, overcoming slow networks to inventing different ways customers can interact with mobile devices. We want to enable our customers to go from wanting a product to search, shop and buying it in 30 seconds or less in our award winning Amazon Mobile family of applications. All this is just the tip of the iceberg! Most of our applications run on a range of mobile handsets and tablets including on iOS and Android.
The Mobile Shopping team is building the next generation mobile foundation to power fluid and interactive experiences in Amazon Shopping apps. The ideal candidate will get design and code this foundation with other rock star engineers on the team. The opportunity to make an impact in this role is only limited by the personal capacity of the candidate!
