Amazon is investing heavily in building a world class Advertising business and the Advertising Sales Tech team is at the head of this growth machine enabling our Sales teams to deliver at scale. Our goal is to accelerate the otherwise human intensive sales operations by investing in strategic self-service applications that accelerate productivity of external advertising customers and internal sales executives. If executed correctly, we will minimize or eliminate the human decision making in advertising.
This is a new team, with a focused initiative, looking for a motivated Sr. Software engineers with a proven track record of building web applications and services at scale. You’ll be responsible for owning, designing and delivering highly scalable systems. We’re a fast-growing team with a very high focus from business to grow, so there’s lot of opportunities. No chance of getting bored here.
A successful engineer in this role is :
· Highly analytical: You solve problems in ways that can be backed up with verifiable data. You focus on driving processes, tools, and statistical methods which support rational decision-making.
· Technically fearless: You aren't satisfied by performing 'as expected' and push the limits past conventional boundaries. Your dial goes to '11'.
· Team obsessed: You help grow your team members to achieve outstanding results. You foster the creative atmosphere to let engineers innovate, while holding them accountable for making smart decisions and delivering results.
· Humbitious: You’re ambitious, yet humble. You recognize that there’s always opportunity for improvement and use introspection and feedback from teammates and peers to raise the bar for your team.
· Engaged by ambiguity: You're able to explore new problem spaces with unique constraints and thus non-obvious solutions; you’re quick to identify any gaps in the team and the right person to fill them to best deliver value to customers.
· Own technical vision and direction: You identify problems and develop solutions; you embrace performance metrics and measurement techniques because they help you assess how well system-related services are running.
· Build and grow your team: You'll be a key contributor on an engineering team that delivers results. This means you'll wear a lot of hats -- from software design, implementation, project management, operations, working with business partners, and so on. You'll be an example of Amazon's leadership principles and work to grow more leaders within your group.
· Collaborate on product direction: You’ll build and maintain strong relationships between engineering and partner disciplines (Product, User Experience) to ensure that we're focused on delivering the right product for customers.
· Lead beyond your team: You will be a key part of a small but growing community of engineering leaders who support their teams and contribute to the overall growth of our product development organization. You'll share your experience and technical acumen in order to drive technology decisions across our organization.
· Design and build systems from scratch.
