Would you like to help us build a large-scale Software-As-A-Service (SAAS) solution for all subscription and membership businesses at Amazon? Are you excited about building systems that revolve around distributed state machine from the ground-up with really challenging mix of requirements on availability, latency and consistency? Are you someone who enjoys the challenge of figuring out scalable and reusable technical solutions in the context of business problems with ever-growing complexity? If the answers are yes, our team will offer you all of those opportunities, so please come talk to us!

We build and run mission critical commerce systems that power all subscription and membership use cases at Amazon. We are responsible for managing all aspects of a subscription's lifecycle at scale and providing the right extensibility in our APIs and data model to support the rapidly growing customization needs by the businesses that we support, among which are some the biggest and most complex at Amazon such as Prime world-wide and Alexa smart home subscriptions.

You will be working on projects involving multiple teams in all aspects of the SDLC using an agile process. As the systems need to be built from the ground up, you will have an opportunity to make a long-lasting impact! To be successful in this position you will have a strong background in Algorithms, Data Structures, Java, and NoSQL. The ability to communicate clearly and concisely (both written and orally) and work well in a team are key competencies. You should be able to quickly adapt to new development environments, learn new systems, create reliable and maintainable code, and find creative and scalable solutions to difficult problems. Experience working with high-traffic, scalable services is a plus.
