The team is responsible for Amazon's critical systems for customer accounts, authentication, and order processing, including shopping cart, order contracts and workflows, global tax, promotions, ship options, and compliance enforcement. These global systems enable Amazon's businesses, from retail, marketplace and international expansion to physical stores and AWS.
