Do you want to shape the future of consumer electronics devices?

Amazon Lab126 is an inventive research and development company that designs and engineers high-profile consumer electronic devices, creating the best-selling Kindle, FireTV, Echo, and Ring family of products. What will you help us create?

We are growing fast and are looking for multi-disciplinary engineers that can work where firmware and electrical designs interact to architect solutions that delight our customers. You will work on products such as doorbells, security drones, and echo devices. In these products you will develop customer use cases, evaluate the design against those use cases, and drive hardware and firmware developed to ensure that the product works in all reasonable use cases.

For these products you will start with the customer and identify a use case. For each use case you will map through the electrical and firmware behavior to determine a method to achieve a desired result. You will frequently act as a problem solver, taking ambiguous or overly constrained issues and determining a path to a solution via hardware, architecture, or firmware design modifications.

Can you make the devices systems work as they should?
