Would you like to work on one of the world's largest transactional distributed systems? How about working with customers and peers from the entire range of Amazon's business on cool new features? Whether you're passionate about building highly scalable and reliable systems or a software developer who likes to solve business problems, Tax Services is the place for you.

As a member of the Tax Data Analytics team, you'll play a key role in solving some of the world's most complex technical challenges associated with Tax. You will apply Large-scale computing, Distributed systems, Data mining, Scalability and Statistical Algorithms techniques - just to name a few.

Our Data Engineer needs to be able to gather and understand data requirements, present it to software engineers, and work in the team to achieve high quality data ingestion goals. You need a passion for complex problems, and enjoy the challenge of operating complex and mission critical systems under extreme loads. Do you think you are up to the challenge? Would you like to learn more and stretch your skills and career?
In this role, you will be a technical expert with significant scope and impact. You will work closely with a group of Software Development Engineers, Product Managers, Software Development Managers and Technical Program Managers to create the data infrastructure and pipelines necessary to drive our team’s initiatives.

Successful candidates should come from a strong data engineering background. You need to have experience with structured data, and being able to analyze/transform the data using various tools. Although SQL is a strong requirement, being flexible enough to work in a scripting environment is a must. Often, the pace of innovation and change implies a need to move to new data sources, and our Data Engineers get to participate in deep diving business data in order to understand/measure sources of disparity. Your analytical skills and knowledge of schema metadata will be essential.
