Would you like to enable mobile app developers to create the next generation of cloud-connected mobile apps? Would you like to help mobile app developers unleash the power of Amazon Web Services to make their mobile apps highly scalable, available, capable, and secure?

Features like Natural Language Processing, User Engagement Analytics, Targeted Push Notifications, Cloud Storage for Files and NoSQL Databases, and Serverless Business Logic are quickly expanding the toolset for mobile app developers, allowing our customers to build powerful new innovative end-user experiences in their mobile apps. We make enabling these capabilities seamless with a simple yet powerful user interface and a core service that automates much of the heavy lifting.

We started as a small team and built an initial suite of services which are currently being used by thousands of developers and tens of thousands of mobile apps.

We have exciting new projects that will continue to simplify and speed the creation and management of cloud-enabled apps. This is a unique opportunity to join a team that is working to change the mobile industry.
