Senior Software Development Manager - 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 Software Engineering leader to 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 localised experience for our customers worldwide and help Amazon grow to the next 1 billion customers.
