Job Description

Join AWS Device Farm to help mobile developers build great cloud-backed apps! As a member of the AWS Mobile team, you will develop services which cater to the needs of mobile developers who build apps for iOS, Android, Kindle, and the mobile web.

We believe that cloud-backed mobile and device applications are a big deal, and our customers are developers who think likewise. We are driven to support our customers in their endeavors, providing software and services to help them use AWS as the foundation for their apps. This is a unique opportunity to influence the mobile app development community in a big way.

In this role, you will be responsible for architecting, implementing and expanding features, services and core components of a brand new service - Device Farm. Device Farm enables mobile developers to run their iOS, Android and FireOS apps and test on our cloud of mobile devices.


As a Software Developer on AWS Device Farm you will also be integrating with a wide range of existing AWS infrastructure to deliver large-scale, high-throughput distributed services consumed by mobile developers. We expect all team members to actively participate in product definition, technical architecture review, iterative development, code review, and operations. Along with this, you will interact with customers (mobile developers) to ensure their needs are met; clear, professional communication with developer customers is an important part of the job.

Responsibilities will include:
- Collaborating on system architecture and new product features
- Designing and implementing highly scalable cloud computing and mobile services
- Delivering working prototypes and proof-of-concepts for iterative development
- Troubleshooting customer issues and communicating with customers
