Senior Software Development Engineer - Expansion Team/Amazon International Technology
- Windhof, Luxembourg
Our ambition is to be Earth's most customer-centric company, where customers can find and discover anything they might want to buy online at the lowest possible prices.
How do we get there? What does it take to solve our customers' everyday online shopping problems? Do our customers find what they are looking for? If they find what they are looking for, is it competitively priced? And if they find what they are looking for a competitive price, can it be delivered fast enough? In today's ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, how do we make sure that people across the globe can still get essential goods delivered to their homes as fast as possible? How do we reach people who are not native English speakers when there are over 7000 languages spoken in the world? How do we facilitate a seamless payment experience when there are over 180 currencies used in the world with diverse payment methods? How do we solve problems for people who have different shopping behaviours from our regular amazon.com shoppers?
Our International Technology team is looking for a Senior Software Development Engineer too join us tackling these challenges. In this role, you will shape Amazon's approach to global marketplace expansion i.e. help expand Amazon's core online commerce business and spin our global flywheel. You will build a global yet localized experience for our customers worldwide and help Amazon grow to the next 1 billion customers.
Senior SDEs at Amazon are above all problem solvers, those we trust most in making technical decisions for how we build our software. They know every line of code we write matters in building great products. As the technical experts on their teams, Senior SDEs come from all different backgrounds, some deeply specialized, while others have a more generalist background. In any case, they are able to keep an eye on big picture while still keeping a finger on the pulse of the details; using both to inform their architectural and design decisions. Senior SDEs also have an eye on the bigger picture and influencing business strategy. Product managers and non-technical stakeholders will depend on you to balance technological demands with business needs.
Luxembourg - Wëllkomm zu Lëtzebuerg!
Our teams in Luxembourg are in the middle of everything. As the headquarters for Amazon's European operations, Luxembourg is home to leadership teams from across the company. The office is a great opportunity to work closely with both business and technical leads on critical projects and grow your career.
The country itself is in the middle of Europe. Set among a picturesque background of medieval ruins, Luxembourg City is home to numerous multinational companies which creates a diverse city. 7 out of 10 residents of Luxembourg City are expats, who hail from 167 different countries. In addition to having three official languages: Luxembourgish, German, and French, English is widely spoken. Simply put, Luxembourg works hard to make expats feel at home. For those who love to travel, the country is centrally located making it easy to visit cities such as, Paris, Cologne, and Brussels by train. Barcelona, Rome and Berlin can be reached in less than two hours by air.
Amazon's goal is to expand into 150 countries by 2022. Luxembourg is the home of International Consumer (Intech) teams focusing on international expansion of our websites around the world.
