Amazon Kindle is a revolutionary reading device, the #1 best-selling product on all of Amazon, and one of the most innovative and fast growing businesses at Amazon. Amazon has also developed significant digital and mobile businesses include Amazon Kindle, Amazon MP3, Amazon Video on Demand, IMDB, Amazon Mobile store, and Audible.

Kindle for Android brings the Kindle reading ecosystem to many millions of Android phones and tablets around the world. We solve interesting, real-world challenges - from optimizing network bandwidth usage and overcoming slow networks, developing new ways to read, enjoy and share content, and developing reading platform abstractions to allow developers across Amazon to build new features such as X-Ray and Immersion Reading.

About you:
You're an experienced engineer looking for a career where you'll be able to build, deliver, and impress. You want to work on projects that require innovative and creative thinking, deep technical problem solving, and the opportunity to lead and mentor other engineers. You challenge yourself and others to constantly come up with better solutions. You're a thought leader, but you don't just know how to solve the problem, you prove it by building the solution. You have a high bar for coding excellence and a passion for design and architecture.

About us together:
We're going to change the way people read. Join a team that is innovating on the reading experience on mobile devices used by millions of Amazon customers. We're going to face challenging technical problems and interesting product challenges. We'll argue about how to solve them, and work together to find a solution that is superior to each of the ideas we came in with. We'll invent things the world has never seen before, and we'll live the Amazon motto to the fullest: Work hard, have fun, make history.
