Job Details


You are a leader of software developers, QA engineers, and other technologists. You are an innovator and excel in an ambiguous, green-field startup environment. You not only love solving the first green-field problem, but implementing it and carrying it through to delivery to customers. You deliver quickly to customers, but never lose sight of the greater architectural goals and move the team further towards them with every incremental launch. You are a fierce advocate of building the hardest thing first and solving only what we need to right now, but always keep the big picture in mind. You set the standard for quality in the development team and bring others along with you when holding a high bar. You raise up those around you with your technical leadership.
You are a creator of engineering culture. You provide engineering direction, give context, motivate your peers to a common purpose, and give everyone room to excel. You look around corners and find the most challenging engineering problems, without waiting for anyone to say to go solve them. You create your own opportunities by connecting with customers and solving their most challenging problems.

What you€™ll do as a Sr Software Development Engineer, Amazon Physical Stores
You will be one of the first software development engineers on team. You'll be part of the team hiring the first software engineers and formulating our technical strategy. You will be instrumental in setting the team culture, quality bar, engineering best practices, and norms. Mentoring and growing the team around you will be one of the primary ways you measure your own success. Recognizing that there's often more to learn from failure than success, you'll experiment constantly. You will build full-stack solutions, including front-end, back-end, data storage, mobile, and ML. You will architect, code and build scalable systems, and know that if a challenge is not a little scary, it€™s probably not worth doing.
