Job Description

Do you want to own the deployment processes, operations, and availability for a collection of diverse software applications in a region?

The AWS Kumo Software team combines the culture of a startup, the innovation and creativity of an R&D Lab, the work-life balance of a mature organization, and technical challenges at the scale of AWS. We offer a playground of opportunities for builders to build and make history!
