Tech Lead / Senior Software Development Engineer
- Madrid, Spain
Amazon in Spain continues to grow and launch new products and we have several openings for Senior Software Engineers to technically lead a team.
Our tech hubs in Madrid and Barcelona are the largest in EMEA with 600+ developers. You will have tons of opportunities to grow a technical career/individual contributor career right here in Spain. Plus, Amazon Madrid offers a competitive salary package and benefits.
We will consider you for a variety of teams within Consumer such as Kindle, Amazon Business and International Technology. At the offer stage, you can choose the team and location that you would like to join.
These are senior roles (may be called Lead / Principal Engineer elsewhere!), where you lead the design and implementation of large-scale efforts from the technical perspective. You will drive the direction of the software architecture and work with other teams on integration. In addition to owning the architecture of a larger product, you will lead code reviews, mentor engineers, and drive important technical decisions.
The role will not just be fixed on your own team: you'll become part of a special and unique Amazon community, full of likeminded peers to bounce ideas off and be creative with.
Together with the rest of the engineers you will be responsible for delivering production-ready code that will be used by hundreds of millions of Amazon customers, and you will own end-to-end the customer experience of the services and features that you build.
As a Sr. software development engineer, you will have a significant impact on the way customers, including friends and family, experience Amazon daily.

• Decide what features to build
• Drive software engineering best practice.
• Design performant, distributed and scalable systems
• Strategize and shape our long-term vision and architecture
• Lead code reviews and mentor engineers
You'll have the opportunity to shape our product roadmap and business direction and work and consult with principal engineers who are world-class experts in the field.
• 10+ years of experience building production software systems.
• Experience defining system architectures and exploring technical feasibility trade-offs.
• Expertise in full stack development in at least one modern programming language.
• Proven ability to learn new languages and technologies, and lead others in acquiring new skills.
• Comfortable with written and/or verbal communication in English - our Tech Hubs are diverse so the working language is 100% English
