Sr. Software Engineer – Master Mint Diecaster, Amazon Coins

If the crazy ride and popularity of Bitcoin makes you cackle like a mad-scientist, this is the place for you.

Unlike some of those other “currencies” out there, we are backed up by and have access to the customer trust and fortitude of the world’s largest online retailer.

Could they be talking about the US dollar?

Job Description
Since the beginning of time, mankind has traded one good or service for another: animal skins for a better club, delicious berries for a place next to the fire, a sweet bicycle for that awesome Darth Vader Large Size Action Figure. With each generation we have found new and interesting ways to swap our valuables. Well here in the Amazon Coins team, we are re-thinking money, and if you are up for it, you can help.Amazon Coins is a virtual currency that can already be used to purchase apps, games, and in-app items on Amazon Appstore. We are excited by the challenging problems we face building a brand new concept of money and we are always thinking about how to redefine the way people think about the cheddar. Unlike some of those other “currencies” out there, we are backed up by and have access to the customer trust and fortitude of the world’s largest online retailer.As a Senior Software Development Engineer on the Coins team, you will work closely with the product and engineering teams to design and develop solutions for hard to solve problems in a technically complex environment. We are looking for someone with advanced software development skills, technical leadership capabilities and proven experience building highly available and fault tolerant software. In this role you will serve as a team leader and are also responsible for mentoring less senior engineers on the team. Since our team is focused on the big picture of how to change a world’s economy, we have a bit of a unique culture. It is kind of like working for a start-up, only you do not run out of money (the old, boring, currently need it to buy food kind of money.)

Here is the deal: if you have been holding out for an opportunity to use your senior level code-crafting skills to have a major impact on a product that touches millions of people, and work on an awesome team of engineers and designers, then this is the place for you. If the crazy ride and popularity of Bitcoin makes you cackle like a mad-scientist, this is the place for you. If you have ever wanted to know that people are using your code to make their lives better, this is the place for you.
