Job summary
Impact
Ever wondered how Amazon offers the Earth's biggest selection and still manages to offer lower prices every day to our customers? Our consumer business teams work with a massive array of selling partners and business financial performance metrics to expand selection and drive costs lower. Given the rapid growth of our business, this requires our category leaders, financial analysts, account managers, site merchandisers and vendor managers to quickly analyze vendors, merchants, categories and brands, diving deep into data showing business efficiency down to the unit sale level. The technology that enables this has huge visibility and impact and is critical to Amazon's continued profitability and growth.

Innovation
We're working on the future. If you are seeking an environment where you can drive innovation. If you want to apply state-of-the-art software technologies to solve real world problems.

Opportunity
You will be part of a team of creative, top-notch software developers to work hard, have fun, and make history.
