Are you interested in shaping the future of movies and television and providing Prime Video Live customers? Do you want to define the next generation of how and what Amazon customers are watching? Prime Video is one of the leading digital video services on the Internet today, and we're just getting started. The Prime Video Ads team owns services that integrate with ad decision systems, handle dynamic transcoding and stitching of ad creatives using client/server side ad insertion (CSAI/SSAI) across HLS/DASH/SS streaming protocols. We helped launch Thursday Night Football and CBS All Access (with ads) on Prime Video and powered the tech of IMDB TV.

The systems you design and build will be in the core path of video delivery to Prime Video customers worldwide. We leverage Amazon Web Services (AWS) technologies including AWS CloudFront, EC2, S3, DynamoDB, Lambda, SNS, SQS and internal AWS incubator technologies.

About the team
The team is chartered to design large scale systems to power the live and VoD streams with ads viewed by a massive audience daily, and you will help bring customers streaming video view experience to a new level.
