Are you passionate about open source? Do you want to make app development better for millions of native mobile developers? This is a unique opportunity to join us and lead an Amplify Framework engineering team. The Amplify Framework (https://aws-amplify.github.io/) was launched in November 2017 and has quickly gained popularity within the industry. Adoption and usage of the framework has also grown rapidly but it is still Day 1 for the team and for our product with an extensive set of new capabilities scheduled for delivery in 2019.
The Amplify Framework is a collection of open source libraries and tools that enable developers to create mobile and web apps on AWS.
