About the team
The Bidder team (within Amazon DSP) is an exciting program that is at the heart of the Amazon Ads stack. We own and operates bidding systems and services responsible for assessing and responding to ad opportunities on Owned and Operated properties and 3rd Party Exchanges and Publishers. We are responsible for orchestrating a complete, efficient and effective bid flow to maximize the number of desirable bids. We measure success of advertiser outcomes along key KPIs and bid effectively on behalf of advertisers. Our decisions are grounded in statistics, control feedback loops, and continuous experimentation. We serve and respond to hundreds of billions of requests annually, and have ambitions to grow that number several orders of magnitude, while maintaining response latencies in the milliseconds. We delight in data, and are constantly trying to enrich our models and make more informed decisions using every bit and byte we have.

We are building the next generation of the bidding infrastructure that powers Amazon Advertising. If you are a self-starter, enjoy designing large scale distributed and orchestration systems, and are intrigued by ambiguous problems, look no further.
