Amazon is investing heavily in building a world class advertising business and we are responsible for defining and delivering a collection of self-service performance advertising products that drive discovery and sales. Our products are strategically important to our Retail and Marketplace businesses driving long term growth. We deliver billions of ad impressions and millions of clicks daily and are breaking fresh ground to create world-class products. We are highly motivated, collaborative and fun-loving with an entrepreneurial spirit and bias for action. With a broad mandate to experiment and innovate, we are growing at an unprecedented rate with a seemingly endless range of new opportunities.
How does Advertising work at Amazon?
Our job is to deliver engaging advertisements by targeting the right customer with the right creative. We build self-service tools for our advertisers to simplify available options to a goals-oriented ad builder allowing advertisers more time to quickly set up campaigns and improve their sales, while giving them the tools and reporting to optimize running campaigns.
We are looking for a strong Software Engineer to help us build the next generation of UI experiences and self service tools. We are seeking that rare combination of solid coding background, but an aptitude and love to apply cutting edge UI frameworks (Angular, ReactJS, etc), challenge the status quo and raise the UX bar on every product you build. You have a proven record of mastering at least one front end framework, and have passion to help us make our front end the best on earth. As a key team member, you will help build and scale a combination of self-service tools, customer-facing shopping experiences on Amazon.com worldwide, rapid UI experimentation and analytics UI interfaces.
We foster and embrace innovation; you will get a chance to apply cutting edge front and backend end technologies and help us build, scale and operate a multi-million initiative of Amazon Advertisement. You will work with customers to scope, design, implement, test and launch new features. You will determine and recommend the right design and UX based on business objectives, timelines and resource constraints. You will frequently interface with the advertising platform (e.g. delivery and analytics) teams, search, Softlines & Browse teams, retail organization across many categories, the traffic generation team and vendor management. This is a great opportunity to impact different facets of the business, in a very visible sense.
You may already know if you're a fit, but perhaps you're concerned about technology and experience requirements—don't be. We are looking for smart, proven engineers with a passion for learning and delivering.
This is a chance to get in on the ground floor for what is becoming a huge area of growth for Amazon's advertising business. Join Amazon's display advertising team today, make history, and transform customer's experiences.
