Software Development Engineer
- Vancouver, Canada
Every day, hundreds of thousands of diverse Amazonians all over the world come to work and obsess over our customers. People Tech is the engine that powers that customer obsession. We work backwards from the customer to enable Amazonians to find their passion, while building and growing their careers. We are lucky to see our end users every day, and experience the lives we touch. Welcome to People Technology.
Our team builds the technology behind decisions with real human impact. How can machine learning help candidates who will thrive at Amazon find the right role? How can we effortlessly onboard and schedule attendance for hundreds of thousands of associates a day? How do we enable Amazon to innovate, scale and push the boundaries of what is possible?
Building inventive technology for this diverse range of customers isn't easy. As Amazon continues to expand beyond the traditional capabilities of human resources our technology must match it - and see around corners for new possibilities. We are solving hard problems in identity, authentication, recruiting, talent, growth, UX, scalability, and diversity.
