Amazon hiring event in Prague

24-28 лютого відбудеться в Празі Amazon hiring even.
Кому цікаво може відсилати CV на цей мейл для Tamara Rea
Подейкують амазон оплачує дорогу в Прагу якщо ваше резюме їх зацікавило.
Також як можна прочитати нижче є варіант що напередодні амазон проведе хайрінг івент в Україні.

We will be in Prague from the 24th-28th of February.

Right now we are also in the talks to first going to Ukraine for a few days before the Prague event. That’s not a for sure thing though, so I don’t know if that’s worth mentioning at this point.
The interview itself will take 4-6 hours and will be technical, and would include Coding, Data structures, Algorithms and Object Oriented Design.
The teams that are attending are the Core Shopping and Social Shopping teams.
You will find information on them here:
Core Shopping includes the Checkout, Detail Page and Gateway/Nav/AUI teams. The Core Shopping Group is the team that owns most of our eCommerce site,, meaning a ton of visibility and huge customer impact!

Social Shopping includes the following teams:
Product Reviews helps take reviews to exciting new heights. Shared Shopping Experience redefines the Amazon shopping experience to be much more social. Community Moderation is a behind-the scenes hero at Amazon, working relentlessly to root out abuse and increase the quality of community contributions.
