AmazonFresh is Amazon’s grocery and non-grocery home delivery pilot in Seattle that delivers unique selection and incredible convenience to our customers. Customers order fresh produce, locally-sourced meat and seafood, dry goods, and non-grocery items; select the time slot of their choice for delivery; and find our trucks at their homes when the time arrives. We are looking for a software engineer to be involved in all aspects of taking this business to the next level.
The AmazonFresh engineering team is responsible for the entire e-commerce software stack for this business, from the customer-facing website to mobile applications to inventory optimization and more. The team uses agile software development methodologies to solve complex technical problems in domains including distributed systems, website and mobile application development, personalization, product search, quantitative optimization, and usability.
You should be passionate about providing an exceptional customer experience and writing high quality, well tested, maintainable code using Ruby, Rails, Java, MySQL, and other open source technologies. We use Scrum, Kanban, test-driven development, and pair programming to meet business objectives, building our software incrementally, ship code continuously, and refactoring systems as needed. We strive to maintain a reasonable work-life balance on our team by setting the expectation that most work will be completed during core hours. If our business and culture sound like they might be a fit, we’d love to hear from you.
