Job Description

EC2 Foundational Technologies is the core of the cloud. We own operating systems, hypervisors, plus system integration and the launch and maintenance of compute platforms for all of EC2. We power innovation across Amazon and the tech world - from startups through the Fortune 500.

Our team assembles all the components of new EC2 instances -- the hardware, device drivers, hypervisor components, etc. that come together to offer new compute platforms. You'll help design and build both test automation frameworks, as well as automate test cases, to drive these new compute platforms to high quality. You will help drive test strategies, system-wide tooling and solutions to asses and mitigate quality risks for EC2 Instances. As new platforms launch with new capabilities, you'll develop the test plans, and work with others to make sure the test cases cover all the key new functionality. You should be an expert in test tools, white-box testing, performance measurement, operating systems and hypervisors. You should love working on the deepest, most technical platforms, and helping figure out what goes wrong, and how to make it better.
