Amazon Business is one of Amazon's fastest growing new initiatives focused on building solutions to enable business customers to research, discover and buy business, industrial and scientific products in large catalogs; across multiple devices, marketplaces and regions. Our customers include individual professionals, businesses and institutions that buy in either high frequency or in bulk quantities. Our customers have different and frequently more complex needs than the traditional Amazon customer base.

The Account Management Services (AMS) team builds services for all Amazon programs to model the structure of an organization and to authorize its members to access program features and organizational data. Our primary focus is the Amazon Business (AB) program, providing a consistent experience in authorizing business members in their end-to-end procurement and administrative workflows, and authoritatively differentiating business buyers from retail customers.

We provide at Tier-1 scale a central repository for all organization data across Amazon programs so that customers need but once provide their organization's information and can benefit from consistent data across these programs. We do this by allowing programs to share organizational hierarchy and data to perform feature authorization. Our services and components are built to be commonly shared across Amazon program teams, so they do not need to repeat duplicate organization modeling and data storage, and can also avoid building redundant program features.

As a Senior Software Engineer on our team, you will have the opportunity to work with business partners, leadership and other software developers and drive our team's technical strategies, vision and architecture. You will design and build software that is highly available, performant, scalable, and extensible. You will raise the bar on operational excellence for our team. At Amazon, we are known for our customer obsession. We need your ideas and your ability to take initiative, innovate, and produce results as we continuously improve the customer experience.

We use SCRUM, test-driven development, and continuous deployment to deliver projects based on realistic timelines and resource constraints.
