This is a unique technical role where you will have the opportunity to influence, invent, and design platform architecture across multiple product and technology spaces (Alexa devices, IoT devices, etc.). Working directly with platform vendors, you will be building the foundation upon which many internal as well as external products will be based. You will design and abstract platform solutions necessary to support 1000's of products with scalability and quality as your top tenets. Working with additional interface owners, you will design and implement automated tests necessary to support your designs. 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, OS and Hardware Platform abstraction, testability, and scalability across multiple device types.
You will dive into ambiguous problem spaces and meticulously distill out design choices, trade-offs, and priorities. You are data and metric driven, and obsessively concerned about performance in resource- constrained environments. You love to share best practices, influence and align teams, and be a technical ambassador for software reuse across the wider Amazon organization.
