Amazon | Edinburgh, UK | Full Stack Engineers - On-site Only | Relocation Assistance | Full Time | Visa Sponsorship available

Amazon development Centre (Scotland) is looking for experienced software developers with strong technical ability, a focus on the customer experience, great teamwork and communication skills, and a motivation to achieve results in a fast-paced environment.

Our development centre in Edinburgh is responsible for devising and growing innovations for Amazon around the world. Small teams of developers, designers and leaders run major parts of Amazon’s business, technology and operations. From interactive UI design to large-scale distributed systems and machine learning, we do whatever it takes to deliver great products and experiences for our customers.

Our work is characterised by high scale, complexity and the need for invention. We offer great opportunities to work on big data, machine learning and high-scale, low-latency distributed systems.

We use a wide variety of languages including Java, Python, Ruby, and JavaScript; Open Source technologies including Linux, Ruby on Rails, and AngularJS; and we build on top of Amazon’s world-leading AWS platform.

For more information take a look at our microsite - http://www.amazondc.com

Feel free to get in touch with me – contact details in my profile - if you are interested in having an informal chat about roles here.

(Please note, I only recruit for the Edinburgh Dev Centre, so cannot help you with other roles/locations)

I have a question about Amazon Recruitment process, I received a codility challenge recently, if I fail that test will that prevent me from applying to other offices later? because a while ago I contacted a recruiter from another office and he told me to reach out at the start of the new year and I don't want to lose that chance. I am sorry if that's irrelevant but I don't know who to ask.

All our teams follow roughly the same process, so if you fail a coding test we generally recommend you wait some time (9-12 months) before re-applying.
