If you are an experienced system developer who is passionate about building the platform to support the world's premier cloud computing environment, then this is the job for you.
The EC2 data plane team is responsible for the design and maintenance of all of Amazon's core compute platforms, with a special focus on EC2, the Elastic Compute Cloud that is the basis for much of Amazon Web Services (AWS). We're also responsible for tools associated with the performance characterization, qualification, build and deployment of our Linux platforms.
We are looking for a System Development Engineer to drive product and operational excellence in this strategically critical space.
System Development Engineers work with technical leaders to refine technical direction, and then follow through with detailed analysis, designs, and superior code. They are equally comfortable leading small, focused project teams as well as making major direct contributions to the project. They deliver features with minimal direct oversight.
The baseline individual for this role will be entirely comfortable with the Linux operating system and understand how to develop in languages such as Java, C#, Python, Go or Ruby in a Linux environment. Experience with Linux package management, version control systems, automated build processes, and software unit testing are a must. Knowledge of the use, design, and development of distributed systems and web services is preferred for this role.
This team creates critical pieces of infrastructure to deploy to our fleet, and is directly responsible for accelerating deployments and driving quality at cloud scale - come help us make history!
