How Would You Like to Make Games for Amazon?

American electronics commerce company Amazon is widely recognized as the largest internet-based retailer in the United States. However, it looks like the company is looking to branch out from selling DVDs, gadgets, furnishings, toys and jewellery and wants to jump right into the world of PC gaming development. To this end, Amazon has posted up to 70 job openings for skilled developers.

The targeted sector is for both FTP and core-orientated games, and personally I’m quite curious to see what kind of projects will come out of this endeavour. Here’s the encouraging statement released by Amazon:

“At Amazon, our goal is to create great PC games. We believe in ground-breaking games that can redefine the boundaries of player experience and change the way the world sees digital entertainment. Games have the power to connect people at a massive scale, and creating these experiences will produce some of the future’s most influential voices in media and art. We seek the best game developers in the world to join our team and become the architects of this vision. Join us, and you’ll have the power of Twitch, AWS, and the entire Amazon ecosystem to shape the future of games. You will work alongside talented industry veterans, including key contributors from dozens of titles: Half Life 2, Left for Dead, Portal, Thief, System Shock 2, Age of Empires, Dawn Of War II, Halo, The Last of Us, Gears of War, Forza, and Bioshock.”

If you think that you could make a valuable contribution to Amazon’s gaming division, you can have a look at the available offerings right here.
