Software Development Engineer
Amazon Business launched in 2015 and reached $1B in its first year, and $15B in 2020. As part this growth, we are starting a new greenfield initiative know as Amazon Catalog. This new initiative will be led by a team of entrepreneurial makers. They will create a seamless experience between B2B buyers and sellers to manage items, prices, and catalogs. As part of Amazon’s efforts to be “Earth’s most customer-centric company” we will enable businesses to configure their Amazon Catalog. This solution will allows businesses to use Amazon as their one stop procurement solution.
While Amazon.com caters to consumers like you and me, Amazon Business aspires to be the preferred choice for all types of business (sole proprietors, small businesses, schools, universities, hospitals, government, enterprises (and everything else). The needs of these business customers are different from those of the traditional Amazon customer, so we are reinventing everything from how we offer our selection, pricing, customer experience, and unparalleled customer service. We have the opportunity to disrupt how businesses buy in this modern age.

You will get to be customer obsessed about both suppliers and the businesses that buy from them. Your solution will span Amazon’s entire technology stack and be deployed worldwide.
