Are you a Java platform implementer? Have you contributed patches to OpenJDK? Have you led a team in adopting bleeding edge Java9 features? Do you sometimes investigate or devise new JVM features or languages? If so, we want to talk to you!
AWS Developer Tools is building a team of software engineers to take ownership of Java in order to improve how we use it and direct its future at Amazon. We care about security vulnerabilities, optimization for high scalability in our systems, and providing our customers (hint: almost every single engineer at Amazon) the best possible Java experience. As we define the next generation of best practices for language support, you will help build a platform for other first tier languages at Amazon.
On this team you will play a leading role in the definition, vision, design, roadmap and development needed to support the JDK at Amazon. You will:
- Work with development teams across all of Amazon as your core customers.
- Iterate, test new ideas, and shape the future vision for services and libraries built on Java.
- Learn and use core AWS and Amazon technologies to design and then build an optimization and validation platform for JDK at Amazon.
- Utilize your deep knowledge of the JDK to define how it’s used across the spectrum of products and services developed at Amazon.
