Here's an opportunity to transform how Amazon moves packages through its network by optimizing and automating our Transportation operations. Our organization is implementing complex sortation, robotic interfaces, guided associate workflows, flow optimization engines, machine learning algorithms, and more to accelerate package delivery and generate savings for a billion dollar plus operating spend.

Our team owns a set of critical software services that are key to processing millions of packages a day and ensuring that Amazon can meet the customer delivery promise. And we are also breaking ground on a whole new set of software services aimed at further automating package sortation in some exciting ways. Our mission is to build the most efficient and optimal transportation system on the planet using our engineering muscle as our biggest advantage.

We are looking for Software Engineers with 2+ years of solid software engineering experience involving solving complex problems to create & enhance our systems to capture the digital counterpart of the physical environment. Solving these problems range from creating scrappy prototypes to test out new ideas to creating highly scalable and performant systems used by 30,000+ users globally. As a Software Development Engineer on the team you will take ownership over the software design, documentation, development, engineering approach, delivery and support of SortTech systems.

  • Own and operate the systems that you build based on real-time customer data and demanding service-level agreements.
  • Contribute and drive planning, design, implementation, testing, operations, and process improvement as a member of an Agile team.


BASIC QUALIFICATIONS

  • 1+ years of experience contributing to the system design or architecture (architecture, design patterns, reliability and scaling) of new and current systems.
  • 2+ years of non-internship professional software development experience
  • Programming experience with at least one software programming language.


PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS

  • Strong demonstrated skills implementing and deploying high volume and highly scalable services
  • Experience with distributed systems, consistent hashing, distributed locking, replication, and load balancing
  • Strong skills and experience with programming, design, and architecture, and familiarity/experience with AWS and other cloud technologies
  • Knowledge of professional software engineering practices & best practices for the full software development life cycle, including coding standards, code reviews, source control management, build processes, testing, and operations
  • Experience in communicating with users, other technical teams, and management to collect requirements, evaluate alternatives and describe product strategy, technical designs, and software product features
  • Experience in full stack development ranging from front-end user interfaces through to back-end systems
  • Experience working in an Agile/Scrum environment
