Software Development Manager
- Bellevue, WA
Are you excited by the prospect of being the Software Development Manager on the team that creates all the purchase orders for the Amazon retail business that is literally worth hundreds of billions of dollars a year? Will the idea of shaping and building a new pre-ordering system appeal to your interest and creativity?
We are looking for a Software Development Manager to oversee and manage a 2-pizza team that owns critical services and the internal and external facing UI of these two critical ordering systems. The first is a JIT purchase orders system that has been the pillar of the Amazon supply chain for years, but it has complex storages that need streamlining and major refactoring. Another is a newly built commitments based pre-ordering communication system that will receive rapid enhancements in the next 2-3 years. Both of these systems will require your top engineering management skills to drive innovations and maintain its uninterrupted services.
You will manage a focused team of engineers, and partner with PM's, other engineering managers, and senior engineers across teams to understand detailed business requirements, participate in the execution and delivery of various initiatives and projects. It is a unique opportunity to work on both a long-standing mission critical system as well as a newly built greenfield system in one of the most critical areas of Amazon's supply chain.
You should be comfortable in talking high-level architecture but also able to dive deep into design and low-level details. You should have a strong sense on business and product requirements to communicate with PM's effectively. You can quickly identify solutions to challenges, and be ready to discuss various technologies and designs with developers. Prior experience with AWS and service-oriented distributed systems is highly desirable. Successful candidates will thrive in fast-paced environments that leverage agile planning, encourage and reward creative design, intelligent decision making, and find innovative ways to leverage cutting edge technologies.
