Massive scale. Cutting edge technology. Visible real world impact.

Ever wondered what's involved in enabling millions of sellers to sell their products around the world? Amazon's Merchant Technologies group does just that - building the software platform and applications necessary for sellers to manage their business on Amazon. Over 2MM Sellers in 10 countries (and growing) list their products for sale on the Amazon.com Marketplace. These Sellers offer hundreds of millions of unique SKUs providing a broad and diverse inventory of products from Books, Electronics, and Apparel to Consumables and beyond. Our business currently represents 40% of Amazon units sold, and is growing all the time. Selling on Amazon is one of the fastest growing businesses at Amazon.com with about one-third of all items currently sold originating from 3rd party merchants.

This Software Development position is for eCSG/Retail systems - where innovation and latest technologies merge to build brand new features and capabilities for sellers and end customers. You will join a highly technical and entrepreneurial team building applications to disrupt B2B (Business to Business) e-commerce segment. You'll be building cutting edge and highly distributed systems to support Amazon sellers around the world. You will be responsible for transformative changes to our architecture and drive the team's technical strategy. You will evaluate and make decisions around the use of new or existing technologies and tools, and you'll coach and mentor junior development engineers.

If you are a sharp software engineer with a creative flare, strong problem-solving skills, a solid computer science foundation and the desire to be an individual contributor to Amazon's next generation technology, we want to talk with you. Come be part of the team redefining how best to sell on the Internet!
