We enable Amazon pay to go fast by providing real-time feedback on production systems. We work side by side with the product family and platform developers to maintain and improve services and performance. We live the company values with a strong customer focus and possess a healthy sense of urgency. We are a heavily data-driven team, utilizing a variety of data collection, enrichment, analytics and visualizations to learn about our complex systems.
We believe in “Work Hard. Have Fun. Make History” value by having a strong focus on sharing learning experiences from the front line with the development teams. So, the options for people in the team are vast. If you like mastering a domain and going deep, we need you. If you can juggle three tasks and coordinate with multiple people in the heat of an incident, we need you. If you love the benefits of process and methodical improvement, you will love it here. If you want to keep your head down, headphones on, and bash out code to support the team, we have a spot for you too.
The team is filled with customer focused individuals that champion and support industry-leading payment gateway. We challenge one another every day and hold ourselves accountable for our work product as well as our customer’s overall success. We all enjoy the interactions with the customers, problem solving, digging into complex issues.
We wake up every morning asking ourselves how we can improve the customer’s experience, the quality of our product, the quality of our support system, or our individual weaknesses. We are not scared of challenges, nor do we back down or get deterred by tough problems. When problems seem the hardest we are at our best, we work harder to find the root cause and a solution.
