Amazon Web Services - Networking is looking for a Sr. Manager to lead our Intent Based Networking (IBN) organization. As a Sr. Manager you will be leading multiple teams working in the IBN space, working on technologies such as description languages to describe network topologies and intents, automated generation of configuration for hundreds of thousands of routers in our fleet, configuration backend services and authoritative systems that model, store and generate network routing policies.
What do we do here? Amazon Web Services (AWS) runs one of the largest networks in the world. We are changing the way Networks are conceived, designed, built and operated, by adopting the principles of Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Intent Based Networking (IBN). We derive our network topologies from higher level designs and intents, and a distributed software system controls the way we manage our network. We put services and algorithms in place to control and manage all layers of the Amazon network, from top of the rack switches in our datacenters (TORs) to our internet and private backbone facing routers.
Why do we do that? At Amazon, we are always customer obsessed. By creating an intent-based, scalable network, we respond quickly and safely to network changes like scaling, maintenance, failure, security and other types of events. This also lowers the cost and overhead for customers, while driving up performance, availability and reliability.
Why now? We want to expand scope of our IBN and configuration backend systems to store and vend operational intent, there by facilitating anomaly detection. We also would expand our description languages, parsers and workflow engines to go beyond the mostly static configuration elements and cover dynamic and operational elements. To achieve this we need to expand our current team focusing on IBN related areas. We are looking for senior leaders who want to get hands on experience with fully automated hyper scale data center networks, cloud infrastructure, large-scale software deployments, algorithms, distributed systems and service oriented architectures (SOA).
How do we operate in our team? We empower our engineers to take ownership of their realm and make a difference. They start by gathering requirements, diving deep to choose technologies, designing features and spinning new services, coding and reviewing, deploying software across the globe and maintaining services. In AWS, we are nimble and agile, like being part of a startup, innovating while collaborating with a smart group of people around you. We are thrilled about how software is changing the landscape of networking. We operate on an unimaginable scale. We push the boundaries in robustness, fault-tolerance and smart adaptive algorithms that can react intelligently to real-world events. Software engineers on our team contribute to every phase of the development process and deploy scalable software systems worldwide.
What will you be doing here?
* Manage mutiple teams, including other managers and Principal Engineers.
* Work backwards from customer needs, build and track business metrics by which the team works to improve customer impact
* Plan, develop, deploy and maintain network management plane software for highly scaled networks, using IBN concepts
* Recruit, coach and mentor managers, and senior software engineers
* Work with management, customers and adjacent development teams to build state of the art solutions, incorporate new technologies, and algorithms
* Set quality standards, build mechanisms and processes for team efficiency, continuously inventing and simplifying
