DESCRIPTION

Amazon Stores is revolutionizing how brand owners connect with shoppers on Amazon. This new program provides a series of tools and services for creating great experiences for brand owners to communicate their brand message. Brands benefit from the self-service advertisement ecosystem to make their stores discoverable, and provide insights into their stores traffic and performance.

The Amazon Stores program is an strategic intersection between advertisement and retail, as we provide an unparalleled destination for ad campaigns, but also enable stores to be organically discovered through the Amazon shopping journey. We operate one of the most sophisticated set of front-end, API and big data technologies across all of Amazon. We partner with dozens of teams across Amazon retail, advertisement, marketplace and core shopping. Our products and initiatives are highly visible across Amazon (CEO, S-Team), impacting the global set of brands and how they interact with Amazon. Millions of shoppers enjoy and interact with our products. Our small team is a startup-minded, energetic and passionate group of engineers with the mission of changing how shoppers and brands conceive Amazon. We are lean, curious about new technologies, collaborative and agile, with a great spirit for building great products.


We are looking for an expert Web Dev/Front End Software Engineer to help us build the next generation of UI experiences and self service tools. We are seeking that rare combination of solid coding background, but an aptitude and love to apply cutting edge UI frameworks (NodeJs, ReactJS, etc), challenge the status quo and raise the UX bar on every product you build. You have a proven record of mastering at least one front end framework, and have passion to help us make our front end the best on earth. As a key team member, you will help build and scale a combination of self-service tools, customer-facing shopping experiences on Amazon.com worldwide, rapid UI experimentation and analytics UI interfaces.

You may already know if you’re a fit, but perhaps you’re concerned about technology and experience requirements—don’t be. We are looking for smart, proven engineers with a passion for learning and delivering.
This is a chance to get in on the ground floor for what is becoming a huge area of growth for Amazon’s advertising business. Join Amazon Stores today, make history, and transform customer’s experiences.
