  • Job Description

    Do you like helping U.S. Intelligence Community agencies implement innovative cloud computing solutions and solve technical problems? Would you like to do this using the latest cloud computing technologies? Do you have a knack for helping these groups understand application architectures and integration approaches, and the consultative and leadership skills to launch a project on a trajectory to success?

    Amazon is looking for Systems and Software Development Engineers to build the software that operates one of the world’s largest and most complex networks. Tens of millions of customers rely on Amazon’s network for using our retail websites, accessing content on their Kindles and building applications and businesses on top of Amazon Web Services (AWS).

    • You enjoy working in a flexible, fast-paced, collaborative team environment.
    • You are interested in making changes to network devices like routers, switches, firewalls and the internet traffic itself using software
