DESCRIPTION
The Listings Platform teams are a set of teams within the Selling Partner Services organization who build and operate the core platforms and services that support people who sell on Amazon. We do this via interactive applications, feed processing systems, reporting frameworks and web service APIs. Selling Partners (Re-Sellers, Brand Owners, Vendors and Integrators) use these systems to manage their products and inventory levels on Amazon, which are mission-critical to our sellers' businesses. Listing Platform's mission is to provide the most innovative, scalable, and reliable systems in the world to ensure our sellers' success.

This specific job is for a software development engineer on the Amazon Listing Insights, Events, and Notifications (ALIEN) team within Listings Platform. ALIEN is extremely customer obsessed and we talk with our customers weekly. ALIEN's mission is to help our customers receive Amazon listing insights and notifications. We are doing this by building the next generation of programmatic notifications for both internal Amazon and external Selling Partner systems. We are also the listing business metrics aggregator to enable the capture of data from the listing pipelines and to make it available to easily power the insights. We believe in using what we build (eating our own dog-food), so these new programmatic integrations are used by both external and internal customers. The solutions we are building will be integrated into the architectures of selling partners world wide. This is a very unique opportunity to work closely with customers and developers to define and build the right solutions to help drive the Amazon flywheel.

Our team favors industry standard technology. When we are debating between technical alternatives that vary on factors such as expense, performance etc., we are strongly biased toward the technology for which hands-on experience provides value beyond the current project (Think Big). The current stack of technologies being leveraged by the team includes REST-based application program interfaces, backed by java services built using a variety of AWS technologies (EC2, Kinesis, S3, SQS, Lambda, EDX and more). No tech team is happy without having some scripting. To quench this thirst, we have a sprinkle of scripts as well. The technologies used by the team, are by and large the team's decision. If we feel there are benefits to moving to technology X, we have the freedom to do so. For instance, we've recently dabbled in CloudFormation and CloudWatch Logs Insights. We cherish our Learn and Be Curious time to discover new tech, new patterns and new ways of thinking.
