Looking for a career at a company that seeks to be Earth’s most customer-centric company? Interested in working on game-changing projects that impact the future of the Business to Business (B2B) landscape? If so, meet Amazon Business.
Amazon Business (AB) launched in the United States in April 2015 with the vision of delivering a comprehensive procurement solution for business customers of all sizes. AB now serves many large enterprises worldwide and has expanded internationally into 9 countries.
We are passionate about architecting the systems the right way and enabling AB on building solutions that help our customers to find and buy products and services from a vast selection, across multiple devices, countries and regions. These business customers include individual professionals, small businesses to large institutions (and everything in between). The needs of these business customers are different from those of the traditional Amazon.com customers, so we are reinventing everything from how we display our selection, price our products, provide the right customer experience and offer unparalleled customer support.
This Principal Engineer position is for the Amazon Business Global Tech group, where innovation and technologies merge to build brand new features and capabilities for Enterprise customers.
