Job Description

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the world leader in providing a highly reliable, scalable, low-cost infrastructure platform in the cloud that powers hundreds of thousands of businesses in 190 countries around the world!

At AWS, we are continuously innovating and expanding our mobile services to enable developers to build, deploy, and manage cloud-enabled native, web, or hybrid apps for iOS and Android. Our services include AWS Mobile Hub, AWS Mobile SDK, and AWS Device Farm. And, we are building new services and features to meet our customers’ growing needs. With these services, we enable developers to create high-quality apps that are scalable, secure, and highly available. By leveraging our services, developers are able to easily deliver rich cloud-enabled experiences to their customers by integrating a broad range of AWS services into their apps including voice & chat capabilities, user engagement & analytics, push notifications, cloud storage, NoSQL databases, and serverless business logic leveraging Lambda.

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. Now we need to grow in order to meet demand for our services and to build new features for our users. 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; we are moving from a Mobile First to a Mobile Only world where we aim to enable millions of people to enrich their experience with everyday mobile experiences that become smarter over time, help them live a healthier lifestyle, and have closer and more meaningful interactions with services providers, public services, and their workplaces.

You will be responsible for developing the services that enable Mobile Hub to eliminate the friction and complexity of wiring up Mobile App projects to AWS services, using the AWS SDKs (iOS, Android, React Native, Unity). Our mission is to make it easy for Mobile App Developers to get up and running quickly using AWS services even if they are unfamiliar with them, so they can focus on building great innovative experiences for their customers.

We are looking for a strong Java developer who is excited about creating software for other developers. The ideal candidate is passionate about new opportunities and has a strong track record of successfully delivering new features and products. A commitment to team work, initiative, and strong communication skills are a must. Creating reliable, scalable, and high performance products requires exceptional technical expertise, a sound understanding of the fundamentals of Computer Science, and practical experience building scalable software products. This person thrives on delivering high quality technology solutions in an environment where priorities shift fast to meet the changing needs of our customers.

As a member of the team, you will:
  • Deliver a lot of high quality code
  • Work closely with the product team and other AWS teams to deliver on the team’s technical vision
  • Influence technical strategy to build products developers will love
  • Drive team discussions on system architecture and component design
  • Lead development and launch of core features and products
