Still Hiring Software Development Engineers for Amazon

I’ve still got open slots in my team at Amazon. Yes, rather that make a little puzzle like my last post I’m saying it specifically. :-) We have a lot of fun and challenging things we are working on, and Amazon in general is a great place to work. Full updated job description for my open positions:

Automated and Targeted Merchandising

The Automated and Targeted Merchandising team delivers relevant merchandising content to users who are most likely to respond favorably to that content. Our team manages a wide range of automated, highly scalable systems, for delivering targeted email and website content to receptive customers. We also own a number of systems that assist marketing and merchandising professionals to find, schedule, and apply relevant targeting for any subset of users. Automated and Targeted Merchandising systems rely heavily on computational advertising, data mining and machine learning techniques. These techniques, combined with aggregated customer behavior data, allow us to provide a high degree of accuracy in targeting the right demographics – and driving higher sales as a result.

Qualifications

The ideal candidate will have strong development skills in Java or C++, with experience in designing and architecting scalable high-performance systems and services that are also flexible, reliable, and maintainable. They will have excellent problem-solving skills, a solid understanding of computer science fundamentals, a quantitative mindset along with a proven track record of on-time delivery. We are seeking engineers that are highly pragmatic and can solve real-world problems faster than others believe possible. Candidates should be familiar with machine learning, data analysis and data mining techniques. Database skills and experience with large-scale multi-tiered distributed systems are highly desired. Familiarity and comfort with front end web technologies a plus. Advanced degree in Computer Science with a strong Mathematical background preferred.

If you are a Software Developer and the job description above sounds like it might be up your alley, toss me a resume at abulsme@abulsme.com. If that specific position isn’t quite what you might be interested in, the Website Application Platform group I am a part of has a bunch of other spots open as well, not just software engineers. See the WAP Jobs site for more information.

If you don’t fit any of the above yourself, but know someone who does, send them my way too. :-)

Hiring Software Engineers - Email Me!

Last month I posted that my company was hiring. They still are. But now I am also hiring for my own group. If you are a Software Developer (and I know some of you are) and you might be able to be convinced to come to the Seattle area for a good position at a good company on a good team doing interesting things, please toss me a resume at abulsme@abulsme.com and I’ll give you some more background and get you into our system to start the process of looking to see if you would be a fit for the spots I am hiring for, or other places within the company. The specific job description for my team:

[My] team manages a number of systems which enable [us] to target highly relevant content to the users most likely to respond positively. Our systems span the range from completely automated email and website programs to systems which assist human schedulers in finding and applying relevant targeting. Our systems rely heavily on computational advertising, data mining and machine learning techniques. [Our] team is looking for truly exceptional software engineers with strong technical abilities and a passion for this area.

The ideal candidate will have strong development skills in Java or C++, with experience in designing and architecting scalable high-performance systems and services that are also flexible, reliable, and maintainable. They will have excellent problem-solving skills, a solid understanding of computer science fundamentals, a quantitative mindset along with a proven track record of on-time delivery. We are seeking engineers that are highly pragmatic and can solve real-world problems faster than others believe possible. Candidates should be familiar with machine learning, data analysis and data mining techniques. Database skills and experience with large-scale multi-tiered distributed systems are also highly desired. Advanced degree in Computer Science with a strong Mathematical background preferred, minimum 3-5 years work experience required.

Note that we are looking for engineers with less experience as well. So if the 3-5 years listed at the end of the above is the only thing holding you back, email me anyway.

And if you don’t meet the description above, but know someone who does, send them my way too.

As with my post last month, I’ll mention that I make a habit of not naming my company explicitly online (at least on my blog, you can find it at LinkedIn and elsewhere if you look and pay attention), but it is a Fortune 500 company based in the Seattle area which is not Costco, Microsoft, Paccar, Weyerhaeuser, Starbucks, Nordstrom or Expeditors, and it is in the tech/retail space and is named after a geographic feature in South America… if you can’t figure it out with that, we don’t want to hire you anyway. :-)
