About the Job

Have you seen the green and bold "Guaranteed Delivery by" dates with a count down or "Delivery Date" by when your package will be delivered on the product details page on Amazon? Or have you ever looked for that one thing so eagerly, that you want it today or tomorrow, and used the search filter to find delivery by today or tomorrow? The delivery promise team owns several services that compute the delivery promises for orders that are fulfilled by the seller. The main service computes the promise dates at run-time with low latencies, and high throughput for a responsive customer experience throughout the shopping journey on Amazon. The team also contributes to the delivery date based search to help customers finding the right products that can be delivered soon. These services are at the heart of customer journey when shopping at Amazon and contributes to a multi-billion dollar business at Amazon. We are also implementing ML solutions to decrease the latency of the service and increase throughput during real-time promise computations.

Amazon is now in 20 countries. We are growing fast, with customers many other countries. Amazon’s store is the engine that powers Amazon’s businesses, and sellers rely on Amazon’s store and our support to start selling on Amazon and to grow their business. Amazon enables sellers worldwide to list hundreds of millions of products and manage orders for inventory across range of categories. While working with sellers world wide, we constantly strive to improve the selection for customers and the capabilities for sellers.

You'll be developing software that handles seller fulfilled promise calculations viewed by all customers on Amazon.com worldwide. You will join a highly technical and entrepreneurial culture defining team that is building the next generation of a promise experience for 3rd party merchants. Over half of everything purchased in Amazon’s store is sold by third-party sellers – mostly small and medium-sized businesses – and their sales are growing faster than our own retail business.

We are looking for engineers with strong sense of ownership and passion to solve challenging problems by building creative and scalable solutions with all sorts of cutting-edge technologies. Our fast-growing team offers excellent opportunity for candidates to participate in all aspects of software development life cycle, as well as drive system evolution, customer satisfaction and boost business. If you are a sharp software engineer with a creative flare, strong problem-solving skills, a solid computer science foundation and the desire to be a contributor to Amazon's next generation technology, we want to talk with you. Come be part of the team redefining how best to sell on the Internet!
