You're looking for an opportunity to have world-changing impact at one of the most innovative companies on Earth. You're excited about open source and want to help design, deliver, and operate a revolutionary new AWS service, Amazon EKS. You are a strong developer with a background in large scale distributed systems, Linux systems development, and/or networking, and are energized by the idea of helping us make AWS the best place to run containers and Kubernetes.
We're a relatively new team of AWS engineers that are building a core set of services to help our customers to run and use Kubernetes and etcd at scale on AWS. CNCF in 2017 found that 60%+ of Kubernetes workloads run on AWS. Given the massive scale and customer demand on Amazon EKS, it is is our goal to contribute upstream to strengthen the design, scale, security and stability of the Kubernetes and etcd projects and ultimately Amazon EKS.
Some things you'll do here
* Collaborate with the community to integrate AWS services with Kubernetes and etcd * Maintain upstream projects related to Amazon EKS, Kubernetes, and Etcd * Work with some of the largest etcd users, such as Kubernetes project, to drive etcd to the next level of scale * Recommend architectural improvements to Kubernetes and Etcd * Expand upstream test coverage for Kubernetes on AWS and EKS * Work on large scale problems both on the control plane and data plane * Incubate revolutionary ideas that benefit Kubernetes and Amazon EKS * Troubleshoot and fixing bugs reported by customers * Mentor junior engineers on design and coding best practices * Represent AWS technical chops in conferences
Some things we like about you
* Your written and spoken English are excellent * You've experience working with (or - top of the pile! - on) AWS services * You've been writing software since you could tie your shoes or 3+ years * You're experienced with strongly-typed languages and know what a pointer is * You're familiar with distributed system design and don't recoil or hiss at either
