Job Description

We have an exciting opportunity to shape and define the next generation of fraud prevention in the cloud. We are looking for seasoned senior developers/architects to design/build massive scale, distributed computing solutions. We are building RESTful web services using massive scale cloud trails (over 100K TPS), real-time event streaming for data processing, and elastic MapReduce (EMR) and Machine Learning (EML). Our team is one of the most visible teams within Amazon and you will build systems to protect the entire cloud from fraud for all AWS customers.

In this senior role you will serve as the technical lead on our most demanding projects. You will be responsible for driving the team’s technical direction, strategizing and shaping our long-term vision and architecture. You will own major deliverables end-to-end, drive roadmaps, and provide technical leadership to the engineering team. If you're excited by cloud computing and machine learning, designing highly scalable, fault tolerant systems, and want to be challenged by the toughest computer science problems, then join us to build the next generation distributed systems solving big data problems with machine learning.

You should be someone who wants to conceive and design highly scalable, robust software, and wants to see their software thrive in the face of traffic from huge cloud computing services. You will be partnering with Data scientists to define the future state of systems. The ideal candidate will have strong distributed systems and web services design and implementation experience, as well as experience working on high availability production systems. Machine learning experience is plus but not a must: you will get opportunity to learn this as part of the role.
