Senior Software Development Engineer (Iii)

3+ months agoNew York, NY


We improve media performance for brand advertisers by providing analytics and recommendations that help them understand how their cross-channel advertising drives activity both on-and-off-Amazon. Our products operate at the intersection of Amazon e-Commerce and Advertising, which means our solutions must work at a massive scale. If you want to work on big data, this is a great place to be. We are seeking a proven and relentless individual who thrives while creating elegant solutions to complex problems in a fast-paced environment.
As a Senior Software Development Engineer (III) on the team, you will be responsible for the planning, architecture, design, implementation, testing, deployment, and integration of data-intensive analytical products that will help steer the future of advertising. In a senior role, you will also be a valuable mentor for the team, recommend and enforce quality standards, work cross-org to remove blockers, and refine requirements with stakeholders. Our stack includes Spark (Scala), EMR, Redshift, Presto, S3, Elasticsearch, JVM-based services, React UIs, and numerous proprietary data exchanges, job schedulers, and cluster management services that oversee our hundreds of discrete daily executions. The list goes on and on, but we are always looking for meaningful improvements so there is plenty of room to introduce new processes and technologies.

You have razor-sharp architectural instincts and love to collaborate by bouncing ideas around a similarly talented team. Our team believes in everyone being driven enough to not need a lot of structure throughout the day; this can translate directly into a low meeting volume with minimal interruptions when desired or a stream of breakout sessions with like-minded colleagues. We want you to be able to innovate how you want to innovate.
This role requires you to have excellent analytical skills and attention to detail when it comes to hard engineering problems that force you to cut through ambiguity and establish creative solutions.
Come have fun and build an exciting future with us.
