If you are a Senior Developer with 5+ years experience and deep expertise in distributed systems and interested in micro-services, you'll want to talk to the ORCS team.
Our systems are at the core of Amazon.com websites because we serve up the product and offering catalog containing billions of records. We are the authority for product information and critical purchasing data, such as availability and price. Offer and Remote Catalog Services (ORCS) respond to billions of requests per day from hundreds of internal clients that power the website and other customer interfaces, such as Kindle and Amazon Alexa. We get more traffic than most other Amazon systems and most requests are handled within a few milliseconds. Our team owns software running in a distributed, high performance, high availability NoSQL data storage system with an inbuilt micro-service computing environment that calculates and vends product and offering information.
Our engineers are customer-focused, strong performance analysts, Linux systems-savvy, and good API designers. These skills help us define the bleeding edge for elegant, super-scalable services at Amazon.com.
The ideal candidate will have strong distributed systems and web services design and implementation experience. You should have a thorough understanding of Internet protocols and experience implementing services using Java/C++ in a Linux/Unix environment. You should be somebody who enjoys working on owning software services, is customer-centric, and feels strongly not only about building good software but about making that software achieve its goals in operational reality.
