Software Development Engineer - Amazon Business

Description

Amazon Business (AB) is a marketplace on Amazon.com that combines the selection, convenience and value customers have come to know and love from Amazon, with new business features and unique benefits that address the needs of businesses. We launched on Amazon.com on April 28th 2015. In June 2016, we publicly announced that we generated over US $1B in revenues in the first 12 months. As we scale, we need to build experiences for business customers to move their planned spend on a recurring basis to Amazon Business. Indirect material replenishment, defined as spend generated from re-ordering of indirect materials is a multi-billion dollar market segment of Business to Business (B2B). Enterprise customers want to leverage AB to access to hundreds of millions of products, business-only selection, free two-day shipping, business pricing, multi-user business accounts, approval workflow, business payment solutions, tax exemptions, dedicated business customer support and much more. Business customers require a seamless experience that cuts across planning, negotiating, order placement, responsive adjustments to schedules and reconciliation.

The next step in scaling Amazon Business is driving growth through customer acquisition. Our customer Registration and Verification solutions are critical to bring more accounts to Amazon Business in a way that will delight our new customers.

You will build new services and experiences and be working with new technologies that improve usability and increase performance and scalability. You will also work with a wide range of teams across Amazon.

We prefer engineers who can thrive in a fast paced, high energy and fun work environment where we deliver value incrementally and frequently. We value highly technical people who know their subject matter deeply and are willing to learn new areas.
