The Consumer Incident Management team drives programs and software initiatives to ensure the Amazon customer experience is indistinguishable from perfect. If technical services experience any degradation, our systems help facilitate and orchestrate the recovery, bringing together multiple data streams to expedite decision making and resolution. Purpose-designed visualizations and tools save us precious minutes when we're working together to minimize customer impact. Consumer Incident Management tools are primarily web applications but also include some back-end business data processing services using a variety of technologies.

As a Software Development Engineer (SDE) on the Consumer Incident Management team, you will design and build SOLID, extensible, and scalable full-stack systems and APIs using modern frameworks in an agile environment. You will actively invest in automated testing strategies and you hold your team accountable to do the same. You will obsess over the customer needs, participate in high-level design conversations, and be a part of establishing the feature direction for what the team builds. Your work will have a broad audience ranging from engineers to executives so you'll need to learn the broad technical landscape at Amazon and create compelling solutions and UX.
