At Amazon Web Services (AWS), we build systems and services at massive scale. Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) is seeing rapid adoption by customers and partners of all sizes and as a result offers you the opportunity to work on challenges that are truly unique. We're the EC2 Enterprise team, responsible for building services that help our customers efficiently manage hundreds, thousands and tens of thousands instances.

This position is for a team building several new services we're planning to launch later this year.

•Help shape the future roadmap for our team and the services we work on

•Learn what makes EC2 tick and work with our partner teams across the breadth of AWS
