AWS Lambda (https://aws.amazon.com/lambda) is changing the way that companies big and small think about computing in the cloud. Lambda functions offer customers a "serverless" way to create applications, an approach that lets customers turn business logic and application code into scalable, fault-tolerant production systems without requiring every developer to become an expert in distributed systems, deployment technologies, and infrastructure management.
We are looking for a senior software engineer who is passionate about building large scale services, performance and efficiency. As part of this team you will lead the charge and be responsible for building services that will scale lambda to millions of transactions per seconds. You will also be responsible for performance optimizations in an environment where we are already are at milliseconds of latency. You should be willing to read research papers, but also move quickly to deliver results to our customers. While delivering software for the short and medium term, as a senior developer, you will work with Principal Engineers to identify risks and recommend architectural improvements for the long term. You will also be responsible for mentoring and developing other engineers on the team.
If this is you, come help us solve problems like:
* Design and implement fault-tolerant systems and services that run at large scales and high availability guarantees. * Dive into complex architectures, research and identify new technology that can help optimize performance * Design and implement systems that will help Lambda achieve 5x the current scale within a year * Design and implement software that will help minimize outages and improve the availability of our service
