DESCRIPTION

Do you want to play a pivotal role in helping Amazon development teams internationalize their features and delight our customers across the globe? International Technology (INTech) organization is looking for a highly motivated SDE-II to support Amazon's long-term vision of building and deploying features for international markets from day one.

INTech Global Parity team was formed in 2018 with a focus on measuring and reducing the parity gap among features available across various Amazon marketplaces. The team is focused on driving successful, locale-specific features to parity, and working to address key internationalization blockers that development teams experience today in an effort to reduce future parity gap as new features are released.

If you are looking for an opportunity that will stretch your knowledge, challenge you to learn and develop new skills, and force you to creatively solve problems at a massive scale, this job might be the right one for you. You will have the opportunity to work directly with core platform and customer-facing teams, internationalization gurus, and business leaders across Amazon as you develop tools and system that will help in driving parity of features across Amazon's consumer technology organization.
