Front End Engineer
- Seattle, WA
The Ask team owns customer Q&A features on Detail Pages and other ingresses in the Amazon Retail ecosystem. Our goal is to help answer customer questions as fast as possible. We employ lean agile development and work in two-week iterations and ship code daily. We hate building stuff that customers don't want, so before we invest in large production systems we quickly validate our hypotheses with small tests. When we do build out systems for scale, they must handle a blistering number of transactions per second. We take pride in owning our entire code stack, from how fast our templates render in the customer's browser through to our service layer and down to the underlying data model. We are a diverse team from a variety of backgrounds and interests who love dreaming up, validating, and shipping features that deliver big customer impact.
The problems you'll work on: You will build software that engages the Amazon community to get answers to customer product questions as quickly as possible. Our problem space provides a unique blend of challenges. You will build social features to connect customers to one another that rely on large datasets, Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Machine Learning (ML) techniques, and distributed systems to make this content available in real time to our customers.
Our organization has a strong culture of placing importance in development and career growth, and personal support and wellbeing, with a series of activities, processes, and experiments designed to make our org an awesome place to work. These include simplified internal transfers, transparent promos, learning series, career days, recognition programs, a sounding board program, mentorship programs, and Ask Us Anything hours.
