As a Software Development Engineer on the Customer Trust and Partner Services team you will be actively working on systems and features that accomplish this for buyers and sellers on everyday.

Who you are: You are technically well versed with the prowess to deliver world-class software.

The Selling Partner Trust and Loyalty team is geared to protect Amazon customers (Buyers, Brand owners and Sellers) from bad actors, abuse and fraud. We realize that the future of Marketplace – and Amazon – is increasing trust across all facets of the buying and fulfillment experience. Our vision is to provide Buyers and Sellers with the most trusted experience, exempt from performance gaps, abuse and negative post-purchase experiences.

We will be delivering a wide range of automation and experiences using massive datasets and distributed frameworks. You will develop high performance applications and services to facilitate the world’s largest selection to millions of customers. We will learn from existing data through machine learning and build targeted solutions that help Sellers improve their performance and maintain the excellent Customer Experience that meets our Marketplace bar.
