Software Development Engineer, WW Speed
Are you interested in helping Amazon make history and redefine the meaning of ‘fast’ in eCommerce? We are the Same Day Delivery Experience team and are in the early innings of reinventing the Amazon shopping experience to make Amazon the first place customers think to shop when they need something today, wherever they are in the world. We’re looking for a Software Engineer for the Same Day Delivery Experience team to help ensure we have a compelling and friction-free ‘delivery in hours’ experience available to our customers, and help drive continuous innovation and improvement of the delivery experience across all phases of shopping, buying, and post purchase experience.
Key job responsibilities
You solve problems in ways that can be backed up with verifiable data. You focus on driving processes, tools, and methods which support rational decision-making.
You aren't satisfied by performing 'as expected' and push the limits past conventional boundaries.
You help grow your team members to achieve excellent results. You foster the creative atmosphere to let engineers innovate, while holding them accountable for making smart decisions and delivering results.
You're able to explore new problem spaces with unique constraints and thus non-obvious solutions; you’re quick to identify any gaps in the team and the right person to fill them to best deliver value to customers.
