DESCRIPTION

Amazon’s Advertising Analytics and Insights (A&I) team is looking for a motivated and experienced Software Development Engineer to design and develop a new data presentation automation system for Amazon advertisers. We are a startup within one of the fastest growing and most strategic parts of Amazon. Analytics & Insights owns the product, technology and deployment roadmap for advanced analytics and insights products across our advertiser success team. Advertiser success is core to Amazon’s growth, as it helps our suppliers drive awareness, consideration, and purchase of their products by hundreds of millions of consumers around the world, and generates revenue which helps us lower prices and invest in improvements to our customer experience.

With a broad mandate to experiment and innovate, we are growing at an unprecedented rate with a seemingly endless range of new opportunities.
