Amazon invests on acquiring, producing andprogramming TV shows & movies - from brand new, including must-seeexclusive series like The Grand Tour, Neil Gaiman's American Gods, toThe Man in the High Castle, Transparent, Mr Robot and more.Prime Video is known for its ground-breaking impact, and in case youthink there is nothing more to do, then think again. We are building anew global innovation platform designed to transform how we develop,test, verify and automate against physical devices. With hundreds ofdevices currently supported, and many more being certified in thefuture, we are changing how we work with devices to ensure that even atthis scale we can assure the exceptional customer experience at all times.Prime Video product teams are continually striving to deliver morefeatures, and platform improvements, faster through CI/CD deliveryplatforms. With platform complexity increasing, and aggressive increasesin the number of customer device types, our ability to test on customerdevices has understandably struggled to keep up.Join us on a mission to change that!We are designing the next generation cloud platform for both physicaland virtual devices.As we work from the physical tiers, onto micro-processors and rightthrough to rack capacity we will be building custom solutions from thehardware systems to the contention management software.
