  • Jobs Rated


Prime Video API is the single source of truth for all Prime Video metadata, a high throughput, low latency system that delivers all data needed to build all pages on all devices for all marketplaces. This year we are expanding our charter to build a raw metadata provider that allows any team in Prime Video to experiment with brand new UX and supporting our massive growth into Live Sports.

Our systems are used by a variety of devices with different capabilities€”from 2010 smart TVs to the latest Fire TV. Our design must support a lot of flexibility across clients while still standardizing common functionality. The central nature of this team means high visibility, and plenty of opportunities to grow and learn. As a member of the PV API team you will have the opportunity to collaborate with senior engineers from client and services teams, understanding and anticipating their needs from our platforms, and influencing complex, multifaceted, cross-system designs.

Amazon Prime Video is changing the way millions of customers interact with video content. The Prime Video team delivers high-quality instant video to Amazon customers through subscriptions (Amazon Prime) as well as purchases and rentals. Amazon believes so deeply in the mission of Prime Video that we've launched our own studio to create original and exclusive content. Every day we face the challenges of a fast paced market and expanding technology set.
