We are looking to hire a Software Development Engineer to work on the systems responsible for driving billions of notifications a year to Amazon customers. In the few seconds that it took for you to to load this page and read this sentence, Amazon sent 100,000 customer notifications. By the time you'll finish reading the rest of this description that number will be well over a million.
As a Software Development Engineer on the Outbound Messaging Platform, you'll be expected to have a strong software development skill set and a passion for building robust software. In building applications you will need to account for the scale of Amazon while maintaining a high quality user experience.
We are a highly distributed system built across AWS services. We deal at scale that requires all parts of our infrastructure to be horizontally scalable to handle delivering 10,000 notifications a second at all times. We expect developers on the team to continue innovating by bringing in new technologies to improve our software and keep our stack current. In addition, you will be encouraged to be passionate about not just your direct work but the software community as a whole.
Being a part of our team comes with the undying love and devotion of the multiple dogs that roam our team area. You will also have the opportunity on a monthly basis to come to Board Game Night, where you can release all work related stress by demolishing your coworkers while playing a large variety of strategy based board games.
Our team is an agile, fast-moving team looking to expand the world's best customer notification platform. To do so, we are looking for truly exceptional software development engineers.
