Amazon Web Services is looking for a Systems Engineer to join our CloudFront Systems Engineering team. Our projects include massively scalable distributed systems that provide inexpensive, reliable, global distribution. This is an opportunity to join a world class team that is at the forefront of creating the next major computing platform. As a member of this AWS team you will help create the environment that will set the pattern for a generation to come. You should be somebody who enjoys working on solving problems, is customer-centric, and feels strongly not only about operations but also about running systems and software in the real world. You must enjoy a close-knit team environment of shared responsibility. The ideal candidate will have progressively stronger experience in distributed systems, Linux/Unix design, networking, implementation and systems engineering.
You will be participating with team members from multiple disciplines to provide solutions that meet cost and availability needs for our customers.
You will be expected to deliver on these kinds of things in the first six to twelve months on the job:
* Develop or further existing automation and system management tools and processes that reduce manual efforts and increase overall efficiency. * Adapt and improve operations management systems and processes to accommodate rapid and increasing growth in systems and traffic. * Monitor the health of the fleet, automating system health, maintenance tasks, and reporting systems as needed. * Perform various system maintenance tasks (your hands get dirty here), including configuration of new edge locations down to the machine level. * Manage directly assigned tasks and on-call duties gracefully.
