The Amazon Devices group delivers delightfully unique Amazon experiences, giving customers instant access to everything, digital or physical.This is a unique technical role where you will have the opportunity to influence, invent, and design system architecture across multiple product and technology spaces (Alexa devices, IoT devices, etc.). You will join a team whose mission is to ensure that state-of-the-art technologies serving the customer are supported via flexible software architectures, OS and Hardware Platform abstraction, testability, and scalability across multiple device types.
As a Senior Software Development Engineer, you will have the opportunity to influence, invent, and design system architecture across multiple product and technology spaces (Alexa devices, Fire TV, Tablet, Smart TV, etc.). You will join a team whose mission is to ensure that state-of-the-art technologies that serve the customer can be supported via flexible software architectures, SOC selection, and end-to-end engineering processes. To this end, you will see the big picture in brilliant graphical detail.
You will dive into ambiguous problem spaces and meticulously distill out design choices, trade-offs, and priorities. This will require working with subject matter experts in different domains that may be outside your most proficient area of expertise. You are data and metric driven, and obsessively concerned about performance under resource constrained environments.
