Job summary
Amazon Advertising help advertisers reach Amazon customers on our owned and operated sites, on other high-quality publishers across the web, and on millions of Kindles, Fire Tablets, Fire TVs, and mobile devices. We start with the customer and work backwards in everything we do, including advertising. If you’re interested in joining a rapidly growing team and working to build a unique, highly respected advertising group with a focus on customer obsession, you’ve come to the right place.
Amazon Advertising is dedicated to driving measurable outcomes for brand advertisers, agencies, authors, and entrepreneurs. Our portfolio ranges from sponsored, display, video, and custom ads to insights and reporting.

Web Development Engineers in our team build branded custom advertising experiences on Amazon’s platforms. Paired with Design Technologists and Campaign Product Managers, the team works together to deliver bar-raising content to our customers, achieve the goals of our advertisers and identify opportunities to grow our business.

Key job responsibilities
You will be expected to read, write, and code-review modern HTML/CSS/JS, leverage common frameworks like React and contribute to our development infrastructure. You will build and test experiences that provide a consistent customer experience cross-browser and cross-device, delivering branded content across desktop, mobile, Fire tablet, Fire TV, and Alexa.

You will support the operation of our team by participating in regular stand-ups, participating in the team on-call rotation, documenting new processes, evolving old processes, immediately surfacing project concerns to the team and handling multiple projects simultaneously during a sprint.

A day in the life
As a Web Development Engineer (WDE) in our team, you will support the scoping and production web development (HTML/CSS/JS) of custom features and content for advertising campaigns on web, mobile and FireTV. Your partners are Designers, Design Technologists and Campaign Product Managers. Your customers are external advertisers and consumers that use our platforms and services. A typical day will involve a mix of team and project meetings as well as heads-down development time. We follow a 2-week sprint cycle.

About the team
The CAPT team designs and builds products that fuel growth in the Brand Products & Solutions org and enable it to scale. We learn from advertising customers to bridge gaps in our existing ad-product portfolio, and partner with them to test new concepts with a view to developing the most valuable ones into scalable ad products. We also empower the wider org by designing & building products that reduce its total operational weight (TOW). Our primary objective is to accelerate Amazon’s flywheel by delivering initiatives that drive incremental ad revenue and/or lower TOW. We are based in Santa Monica, CA. Our partners and customers are global.


  • Experience in advertising.
  • Experience communicating requirements and technical designs with users, other technical teams and management.
  • Experience influencing software engineering approaches and culture within your team.
  • Desire to learn new technologies and systems.
  • Strong sense of ownership and drive.
  • Sharp problem solving skills and ability to convert ambiguous requirements to structured solutions and actions.
