Are you looking for an opportunity to build a highly available, large scale, enterprise-wide software solution? Does it excite you to find patterns and build generic, composable software solutions to solve complex problems? Are you always looking for inventing newer and simpler ways of building solutions? If so, we are looking for you to fill a challenging position in Amazon Finance Technology team.

Whether you buy something from amazon.com or watch a show on Amazon Prime, any of these business transactions get converted into multiple financial events. Our teams in FinTech ingest, transform and integrate these events to produce insights for Finance and Accounting to make business decisions and close books. We are looking for an outstanding Software Development Engineer to build a brand new system to automate Financial Reserves reported externally. We will leverage state of the art technologies to perform related computation in minutes as opposed to hours and days taken by the existing systems. We will also build complete traceability for our customers to drill down from the output produced by our system to the input to our system. Our solution will work as a single reserve automation engine across Amazon. Our customers include Amazon's internal and external financial community across the globe.

This is an exciting opportunity for a seasoned engineer. In this position, you will play a leading role in the architecture, design, implementation and deployment of large-scale and complex financial applications. You will have potential opportunity to build a domain specific language to onboard hundreds of use cases that we will need to onboard. You will push your design and architecture limits by inventing and simplifying complex problems. You have strong verbal and written communication skills, are self-driven, and can deliver high quality results in a fast-paced environment. You will work with Amazon engineering and business teams across the globe in planning, designing, executing and implementing this new platform.

This is a high visibility project and tracked at SVP level.

It is a brand new capability we are building and you will have opportunity to work with other outstanding engineers. We are currently in the stage of defining the long-term architecture and high level design. So this is your chance to define this capability from scratch.
