Self Service Performance Advertising provides the platform for some of Amazon's fastest growing strategic businesses, such as Sponsored Products and Sponsored Brand Ads. Our global advertising platform provides self-service low-latency systems for multiple performance-based advertising programs with large ad inventories.

Our products are strategically important to our Retail and Marketplace businesses driving long term growth, and as such our organization's initiatives are highly visible to Amazon's executive leadership.

You will grow and develop a high-performance engineering team, work with world-class product and UX professionals, and influence technical and functional roadmaps.
