We are the Amazon Video team focusing on video subscriptions, a new initiative created early in 2016. In December 2015, we launched the ability for Prime members to subscribe to Showtime, Starz, and more a la carte simply using their Amazon account. Looking ahead, we are planning on bringing more great live television content to Amazon Video and are seeking engineers to work in our Seattle or Los Angeles area office who want to help us bring this new content to customers.
Do you want to build products used every single day by your friends and family? Do you spend weekends bingeing through your favorite TV shows? Are you passionate about code simplicity over volume? Do you love to ship software early and often? If so, this may be the team for you. We're building a platform to deliver compelling content to millions of customers, and we're just getting started.
We care about your career growth, too. Once you join the team, you and your manager will jointly craft a career plan and you'll review it regularly to ensure you're on track to meet your goals. Whether your goals are to explore new technologies, take on bigger problems, or get to the next level, we'll help you get there. Our business is growing fast, and our people will grow with it.
