About Us

Our vision as a Onsite Publishing Team is to increase convenience for customers by making Amazon a one-stop-shop for product research & discovery – through sourcing, integrating, valuing, and incentivizing third party content (both customer generated and professional) on Amazon. By providing relevant, quality content on Amazon, we believe we can increase long term customer engagement with Amazon and reduce customer reliance on intermediaries.

About You

You have a passion for software development and are ready to step up from being just a coder – you're comfortable in the open-source and Linux worlds, can proficiently write code in more than a couple of languages and are picking up new ones as needed. You can explain why various design patterns are both awesome and constraining, you've seen code fail (and fixed) in production in spectacular ways – and learned from it. You've come to the understanding that being passionate about an idea is different than taking it personally and believe that debate makes strong ideas stronger.

You've written lots of software, shipped products and contributed to platforms, tools and modules. Having worked with several frameworks, designs and scaling models you understand the challenges involved with building big, distributed systems used by thousands of people every day - and relish them. You love to learn new things and to grow.
