In 2018, consumers are projected to take over a trillion photos and videos, and Amazon Photos is one of Amazon's newest and fastest growing Prime benefits. We provide unlimited, original resolution photo storage for Prime members who now have a simple, secure place to store their existing collections of photos, automatically upload new photos as they are taken, and access them anytime, anywhere, at no additional cost. We store hundreds of petabytes of data and provide apps for customers to access their photos and videos on iOS, Android, PC, Mac and web.

We are looking for a Software Development Engineer to lead architecture and development for our Android apps for phones, tablets and TVs.

  • Write clean, maintainable code and perform peer code-reviews.
  • Work with other team members to investigate design approaches, prototype new technology and evaluate technical feasibility
  • Work in an Agile/Scrum environment to deliver high quality software against aggressive schedules
  • Establish architectural principles, select design patterns and then mentor team members on their appropriate application
  • Help define and implement standards and promote best practices for the Android development team
  • Analyze and optimize applications to maximize speed and scale, factoring in mobile network latency and bandwidth constraints.

Basic Qualifications

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science or related field
  • 3 years of professional software development experience
  • 3 years of software development experience using Java on Android
  • Proficiency in object oriented development and ability to apply OO concepts
