Amazon Eyes DVD Rentals

Amazon.com job listings for software engineers raise the specter of the internet retail giant entering the online DVD rental market in the United States, challenging companies like Netflix and Blockbuster.

Advertising for positions based at the company's Seattle headquarters, the listings seek engineers to help in "building systems and algorithms that must move inventory between our fulfillment centers and our customers in a way that gives customers exactly what they want, when they want it." The postings indicate they are specifically for an online DVD rental service.
