Job Description

Join AWS to help mobile developers and enterprises build great cloud-backed apps and services. 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, and the mobile web. You will enable our customers to use the serverless microservices way to create apps, an approach that let's customers turn business logic and application code into scalable, fault-tolerant production systems without requiring every developer to become an expert in distributed systems, deployment technologies, and infrastructure management.

Willing to read research papers but also move quickly to turn code into customer solutions. Excited (and a little frightened) by the scale at which we work. A roll-up-your-sleeves type. Able to think about business opportunities, operational issues, and architectural diagrams in the course of a single conversation. Intellectually curious and dedicated to turning developers into raving fans. Someone who makes the team both productive and fun to work in. Excited to learn from others while bringing your own novel capabilities and perspectives.

Together, we’ll deliver the next generation of mobile application development platform and help every business from the smallest startups to the largest enterprises build their mobile apps in the cloud. We’ll shape not just our own products, but the direction of the industry . Come help us change the world!
