Are you obsessed with building the next generation shopping experience for Amazon customers? Do you want to redefine an experience starting with the customer, and build services to support it? If any of this motivates you then look no further, come join our team of engineers to build a magical experience for our customers.

Amazon is building the next generation shopping experience, with a massive collection of inventory from various brands, so customers have a seamless shopping experience. Today the online clothing shopper faces challenges on multiple fronts: discovering interesting items in a sea of products, evaluating fit, assessing cut and other style details.

In this role you will design and build the user experiences on the surfaces our customers interact with (i.e. mobile web, mobile app, desktop). You will work with Product and UX design to understand and create solutions for diverse user requirements (e.g., accessibility, internationalization), user hardware constraints, and front-end security risks. You instrument software with real user metrics (e.g., taps/clicks, feature interaction, performance, fatals) to provide data and protect the customer experience. You will find bold and innovative ways to drive down frontend latency. You use your knowledge of the UX space to improve design and engineering processes, and to raise the team€™s knowledge of frontend development. You will build, create, and deliver the right experience for customers, and make Amazon Fashion the daily destination for inspirational fashion worldwide.

As a member of the team, you can have a huge impact on everything from the functionality we deliver for our customers, to the architecture and operational excellence of our systems, to the algorithms we employ, to the culture we build. Engineers on the team enjoy a low operations load, focus on delivery, and are highly encouraged to explore personal ideas that will deliver significant customer impact or technical benefits to the team or more.
