About the job

Job Summary


The Wheel of Time, Lord of the Rings, Thursday Night Football, English Premier League, Bundesliga, Champion’s League, World class Tennis, The Underground Railroad – the list goes on. Every year Prime Video delivers great sporting moments, engaging storytelling and thought-provoking film and we need talented engineers to help us continuously improve the customer experience.

Prime Video operates on a global scale and is a critical part of Amazon’s flywheel. Our service allows customers in more than 240 countries and territories to stream Prime Video content, we develop and operate clients and services that support some of the largest events such as Thursday Night Football and the English Premiere League and we’re a major driver of signups, conversion and renewals for Amazon’s Prime membership program.

The Prime Video Mobile organization owns PV’s “last mile” customer experience including Android and iOS-based engineering teams (Android, iOS, Mac OSX, Tablets) and tier-1 services that access PV’s large backend service graph, providing authoritative APIs that reduce the complexity, cost and time to develop and launch features to our customers. Our client apps are the gateway to the PV experience, enabling customers to quickly find something to watch at which point the app fades in the background and the customer is immersed in the storytelling.

Collectively, our mobile apps exist on more than a 100 million connected devices enabling customers to stream billions of videos per month in more than 250 countries and territories throughout the world. Our area of ownership is broad and deep and includes challenging engineering problems such as low-latency front end client engineering, predictive defect detection complemented with end-to-end resiliency, planet-scale distributed systems, high-throughput low-latency and highly-available platform services, and API design. We’re actively working on initiatives that will have a significant and lasting impact on feature delivery across every team in Prime Video. By decoupling our client architectures and developing self-service capabilities across the entire software development lifecycle (from coding to deployment and operations) we’ll minimize communication and coupling between teams, increase ownership, foster localized decision making and enable faster independent execution with sharper focus.

If you are passionate about film, sport, TV, or client app development in general and you’re looking for a role where you can maximize your impact, come help us achieve our mission of building the most customer-centric, immersive and visually-rich video streaming experience on any device.

Basic Qualifications

  • BS degree or higher in Computer Science, a related technical field or relevant industry experience.
  • 10+ years of software development experience.
  • You have direct hands-on experience leading the design and implementation of large-scale projects that have been successfully launched to customers.
  • Proven programming ability in C/C++, Python, Java.
  • Excellent communication skills and the ability to drive cross-team collaboration.

  • Experience as a Principal SDE
  • Experience building Internet-enabled client apps using native Mobile development, Living Room platforms (such as smart TVs, set top boxes, gaming consoles), Windows 10, OS X or web browsers.
