We are looking for an experienced Software Development Engineer to join our Device Ad Platform. This is a great opportunity for a results-oriented, entrepreneurial individual who enjoys working on large scale, high performance, data processing and real-time optimization problems.

You will need to think creatively and strategically about our business, and work together with other engineers, technical program managers, and product managers to identify and execute on the most promising opportunities. You will be responsible for defining high-level architecture, for writing world-class software, and for helping us to continually adjust and improve our software development practices and processes. Your success will be measured by your ability to build feature sets that deliver a strong user experience for Kindle customers, attract and retain advertisers, generate positive feedback from those advertisers, and that unlock revenue opportunities.
