Employment Opportunities at Amazon [Apr. 13th, 2011|04:19 pm]

I don’t often post about work stuff but we are looking for experienced folks and I thought I’d put out the call to friends here. These are roles in my branch of the company so you need to be in or willing to relocate to Seattle. (It’s great up here!)

Software Developers

Are phrases like “abstract factory”, “O(log n)”, and “unit test” part of your vocabulary? Do you want to work on global-scale development? Ever dreamt in Java (or Ruby or..)?

We’re looking for developers with 3+ years experience. Desirable skills: strong language and algorithm knowledge, service-oriented architecture, scalability, Linux/Unix environment, database familiarity, software architecture and design patterns.

Technical Project Managers (my role!)

Are you Agile or do you run Scrums? Does inefficiency annoy you? Do you habitually say things like “external dependency”, “milestone deliverable”, and “critical path”? Even though you’re shepherding projects, do you still understand the technical details that underlie it all?

We’re looking for project managers with 3+ years experience and strong technical backgrounds to be involved in roadmap planning, driving projects to completion, helping to design system architecture, and ensuring our engineers can be as productive as possible.

Other Key Roles

We are also on the lookout for Oracle DBAs, QA testers, and QA testing automation folks.

Also feel free to browse the site's job postings.
