Amazon Web Services ("AWS") enables customers of all sizes to run their applications on Amazon's industry-leading cloud computing infrastructure. As we continue to grow our business, we are constantly looking for ways to help serve our customers with innovative offerings that fundamentally change the way people build, deploy, and manage AWS cloud applications.
Amazon Route 53 is a highly available and scalable Domain Name System (DNS) service offered by AWS, and we are growing rapidly! At Route 53, we work on deep, technical problems that span a variety of core topics ranging from databases, to networking, to distributed systems, to numerical analysis and even security. We need experienced Software Development Engineers interested in not only building good software, but also running that software in the real world. This is an opportunity to help build the platform that will set the standard for cloud computing.
Why would you want to join our team?
We are now embarking on adding the next wave of functionality for a service that is core to all modern Internet businesses. If you're excited about solving hard technical problems in the distributed systems space, and want your work to make an immediate impact in the real world, this is the place for you. If going deep to optimize for scale, latency, and resource usage excites you as much as working backwards from the customer to develop features that not only work, but delight, then join us in delivering a next generation platform.
What does it take to succeed in this role?
In addition to the technical qualifications, you must be a passionate, creative, self-driven, responsible role model. You must be an accomplished engineer with experience in distributed systems and a focus on scalability and operational excellence to help us grow and operate a large-scale, global service, intended to be a core building block for many larger services. You should have strong experience in designing solutions focused on customer needs, leading teams in developing and deploying these solutions, and operating the systems in production with a demonstrated focus on security, stability and availability.
You should be excited (and a little frightened) by the enormous scale at which we operate. A natural problem solver, who is able to think about business opportunities, operational issues, and architecture in the course of a single conversation. Curious about our customers' needs and dedicated to turning developers into raving fans. Excited to learn from others while bringing your own novel capabilities and perspectives. Someone who makes the team room both productive and fun to work in.
Responsibilities will include diving deep into existing infrastructure, analyzing and prioritizing engineering demands, and delivering maintainable and scalable solutions to customer problems. As a member of the team, you will work closely with management and engineering leaders to set strategy, define the product, and make the hard, high-judgment trade-offs between features and time-to-market. You should lead development teams by example in delivering elegant system architecture, innovative designs, and maintainable code, all in the service of a fantastic customer experience.
