Job Description

Amazon is searching for industry-leading professionals to join our AWS Load Balancing network team. We own the design, capacity management & scaling, availability and operational excellence of the global networks that power Amazon Web Services. We push our networks to their limit; traditional network vendors simply cannot deliver cost effective solutions capable of meeting our requirements for availability, performance or flexibility. In AWS Networking, we invent, design, refine and then we invent again.

We are building a scalable distributed system to manage the distribution of: libraries, modules and device configuration for thousands of heterogeneous devices in dozens of data centers across the world. These systems enable backend workflows to manage automated, planned and unplanned deployments supporting both roll-back and automatic failover. We are building services to expose device-independent, well defined and abstracted APIs around network elements to build application level networking software. This allows us to build robust network management applications that provide significantly improved control, visibility and predictability for Amazon’s global network.
