Amazon.com is hiring for multiple software development engineers in data mining and personalization. Utilize the world's largest e-commerce data warehouse to improve the customer experience!

Multiple positions are available in the following teams

  • Targeted e-mail, which includes automatically generating campaigns and optimally targeting them

  • Automated advertising, which includes optimizing ads on third party sites
  • Personalization, both for unrecognized (people who bought X bought Y) and recognized customers (based on history)
  • Data mining for analyzing customer behavior, including extract-transform-load processes, model building, and visualization
We are looking for engineers interested in either front-end work (user interfaces for building web sites) or backend (e.g., algorithms, scaling up, parallelization) or both.

The positions require strong programming skills (e.g., C/C++/Java/Perl), creative thinking, and a desire to work in a fast-moving environment where ideas are deployed and tested often. All candidates must have a strong computer science background.
