Job Description

Our Amazon Business International (ABI) team is looking for hire Software Development Engineers to support growth of Amazon Business (AB) in all of Europe and Asia as well as expanding the success of Amazon Business to other countries.
AB aims to become the most customer-centric provider of products and procurement services for business, government and industry in the world. We’re off to a big start. After launching in 2015 in the United States, Amazon Business quickly reached $1 billion in annualized revenue. Now we’re expanding outside the United States. Building on top of Amazon’s long history of customer focus and innovation, and our drive to think big, AB is addressing a new set of customer needs in a vast new market segment. While we can rely on Amazon’s existing capabilities in user experience, convenience, selection, pricing and logistics, we need to re-invent core parts of the buying experience to serve the needs of businesses and other institutional buyers – from the kinds of products we offer, to our payment methods, to close integration with corporate purchasing systems. Furthermore, as we expand outside the U.S., we need to listen closely to local customer needs and tailor our approach to the requirements of local customers in Europe and Asia.
The ABI organization is focused on building solutions to enable International AB customers to research, discover and buy business, industrial and scientific products in large catalogs; across multiple devices, marketplaces and regions. Our customers include individual professionals, businesses and institutions and have different needs than the traditional Amazon consumer customers.

The role is based in Madrid.

Position Summary
ABI is rapidly growing and we're looking to build a high performing tech team that would lead the technical direction of International features. This is a great opportunity to deal with a very ambiguous space and resolve high-impact problems. You will have the end-to-end ownership of your product areas. You will partner with other development teams companywide to deliver a coherent and unified AB experience.

The AB team is comprised of Engineers, TPMs, Researchers, Designers and Product Managers, all tasked with a singular goal to create a world class and differentiated buying experience for business customers. You will be a key member of this team, dedicated to our ongoing effort to launch best of breed business features worldwide. You will also partner with a wide range of teams across Amazon.

You will partner closely with TPMs to help translate business requirements into technical deliverables and deliver operationally stable solution that provides compelling customer experiences. You have strong ownership, passion to provide great customer experience and extreme focus on deliver results.

We prefer candidates who can thrive in a fast paced, high energy and fun work environment where we deliver value incrementally and frequently.
