DESCRIPTION

AWS Pinpoint services are built using the next generation cloud technologies.

The best part of working with Amazon Pinpoint is the chance to help customers solve exciting new challenges and create new app experiences every day that impact millions of users. Our customers are innovators, and you will have the chance to work with them to understand their challenges and design new offerings. Together, we'll shape not just our own products, but the direction of the industry. Learn more about our business at https://aws.amazon.com/pinpoint/.

We need your help to build a platform that will ingest trillions of messages from billions of devices. You will make applications that leverage big data technology and machine learning to improve user engagement with mobile apps. Your messaging and targeting applications will power the world's leading social media, gaming, sports, educational, and consumer applications. You will work closely with Product Management to best address our customers' needs and help shape the product for success by creating engaging and dynamic experiences.
