Software Development Engineer Video Games
Amazon | Seattle WA 98144 USA | Full Time | Posted: 01/16/2009
Senior Developers needed for Software and Video Games Distribution at Amazon We're a small team making big changes at Amazon in software and videogame distribution - establishing a new business and, if successful, the model for many businesses to come. This is the seed of an enterprise system and it may be the best time and place for a seasoned engineer to start at Amazon. This is a team of talented professionals who put their hearts into their work. If you can't help doing that, and if you want to work with great people and genuinely interesting technology, you should consider applying immediately. To make it past the recruiting screener you'll need some experience - a few years, several, or many - with C++ or Java, and large-scale systems. It's all web-based around here; HTML, web services, that sort of thing. You'll want to know or learn some Perl. Important: we need someone who can create a successful system design without supervision.
Teamwork, a sense of ownership, and those essential qualities that allow smart people to get things done are, well, essential. We use phrases around here like "bias for action" with no sarcasm. We hold each other to exacting standards; we put customers on pedestals. We talk constantly. We get to work excited every day, we go home tired. Sound like the time of your life? Then, we may also need you.
