DESCRIPTION

Job summary
Do you think innovating for customers and providing NextGen solutions at Amazon Web Service (AWS) scale is interesting?

Amazon is breaking new ground and changing the rules at Amazon Web Services (AWS) constantly. AWS is core at serving world's public cloud traffic, serving customers at ultra large scale, and this volume is growing exponentially every day. At Amazon/AWS, we take software applications and services to their limits. Due to our scale, we see issues that no other companies see. We are creatively and disruptively solving some of the most complex problems related to immense growth, scaling, leveraging the cloud, extremely high performance and high availability. If these types of challenges excite you, then this is the place for you.

You will be playing a key role at solving challenging problems in distributed systems, secure multi-tenancy, concurrency, scale, availability, durability, and performance engineering. Surrounded by world-class technical talent, building on a pure AWS infrastructure, you will translate user requirements, help define roadmap, design, develop, deploy, and test end-to-end. The team is stronger due to your presence, and you regularly contribute to the professional development of colleagues. You understand the business impacts of technical decisions and guide technology choices to create amazing experiences for customers. You will be working closely with leaders in the org to ensure your solution's contract and functionality aligns with the broader objective.

This role requires ownership, autonomy, and an ability to deliver results, often within the ambiguity of building a new product. You will need to work efficiently to build the right things with limited guidance, and your experience will raise the bar to create an amazing experience for our customers.

We intend to be the world's best and most reliable service, built by an excellent team, all while having fun - come join us on the journey!

Company Information

We are driven by the excitement of building technologies, inventing products, and providing services that change lives. We embrace new ways of doing things, make decisions quickly, and are not afraid to fail. We have the scope and capabilities of a large company, and the spirit and heart of a small one. Together, Amazonians research and develop new technologies from Amazon Web Services to Alexa on behalf of our customers: shoppers, sellers, content creators, and developers around the world. Our mission is to be Earth's most customer-centric company. Our actions, goals, projects, programs, and inventions begin and end with the customer top of mind. You'll also hear us say that at Amazon, it's always "Day 1." What do we mean?
