#1 of 26We're making a desktop laser cutter/engraver: a magic box that makes beautiful products. CNC lasers have been around since the 80s but innovation's been at a standstill. We're driving the price of the hardware down 5x and building a cloud backend that does motion planning and machine vision to make it dead simple to use. Push a button, out come flat-pack wallets, lamps, board games, and anything else you can dream up. We're up in Seattle, funded, and have 8 employees including 3 founders who've manufactured hardware, sold companies, graduated YC, and built profitable businesses. Check out this article about us: http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2015/02/15/slice-and-carve-the... If you like what you see, shoot us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org!
PS: We'd love to talk to anyone, but especially want to encourage women and underrepresented minorities to apply. We're building a product for all kinds of people, and we'd like it to be built by all kinds of people, too.
#2 of 26AmazonUI (AUI) team at Amazon | Seattle or San Francisco | Full time | Non-remote only, full relocation packages available
AUI is the Front-end platform being adopted on Amazon.com. We are modernizing the company's front end code base, while diving deep on latency, performance, API design, user experience, and cross browser/device compatibility. Basically, we need people who can build libraries, not just use them.
Our team is incredibly customer centric. For any given situation, we have to make the right choice on behalf of the folks using our platform -- and we have to do it at scale. That may sound cliche, but within the next hour AUI will be used to generate tens of millions of page views. And that's just in the US. Worldwide, we're used on about 90% of requests across all device categories.
It's a lot of responsibility, but also a lot of opportunity. For example, we can run experiments that change almost every page on Amazon.com. We can also impact the page load time for the entire site. Have you ever tried to figure out why your site is 6ms slower? We have.
Join our team to help launch the next-gen redesign and create an even better user experience for Amazon customers!
