Amazon is investing heavily in building a world class advertising business and we are responsible for defining and delivering a collection of self-service performance advertising products that drive discovery and sales. Our products are strategically important to our Retail and Marketplace businesses driving long term growth. We deliver billions of ad impressions and millions of clicks daily and are breaking fresh ground to create world-class products. We are highly motivated, collaborative and fun-loving with an entrepreneurial spirit and bias for action. With a broad mandate to experiment and innovate, we are growing at an unprecedented rate with a seemingly endless range of new opportunities.
The Performance Ads Core Engine (PACE) team develops core services for Advertiser Registration and Access Management, Ad Catalog Service, Billing, Data Ingestion/Publishing and Analytics that underpin advertising programs such as Sponsored Products and Headline Search Ads. The Advertising Campaign Storage Service stores Ads catalog and notifies downstream systems such as Ad Server, Search Index about any changes in real-time. We handle millions of requests and process billions of events daily and are building the next-generation system to support low-latency Catalog Data Access Service, a highly available/scalable Storage layer and a real-time streaming publishing. We manage the end-to-end lifecycle of Advertiser Account Management including Registration and granular access control. We are working on the next-generation Advertiser Registration and Account Management akin to AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) service. The Clicks and Impressions Ingestion systems store data streams (such as request to serve an ad, impression and click) and own traffic intelligence with subsequent big data ingestion. We process tens of billions requests per daily, cleanse the incoming raw data, discard robotic and other low quality traffic sources, apply business logic and perform various transforms to ease large scale Analytics processing. The Advertiser Communications and Engagement System manages central communication and engagement, integrating with systems generating operational, marketing and product communications and delivering the content to advertisers via their preferred channels (email, selling coach widget, business advisor, mobile etc.). The Advertiser Billing systems own end-to-end Billing function with real-time data ingestion pipeline, Budget management, Billing adjustment, Promotions, Invoicing and Tax integration and Fraud Management. The systems are pushing boundaries in terms of scale of storage, data processing and real-time propagation.
You will build services to handle billions of requests per day, while maintaining response latencies in the milliseconds and meeting strict SLA requirements. Our systems and algorithms operate on one of the world's largest product catalogs and it is quite routine for our systems to operate on massive datasets using distributed frameworks. We consistently strive to improve the customer search and browse experience. You will not merely go through the full software development cycle but more importantly drive appropriate technology choices for the business, lead the way for continuous innovation, and shape the future of e-commerce. You will develop distributed solutions with service oriented architecture to build high performance platforms to service world's largest selection to millions of customers.
