Job Description

The AWS Silk Developers team harnesses the power of AWS to build best of bread development tools. We embrace the philosophy of Continuous Integration, verifying all code as it flows into our pipeline, instead of on a scheduled basis. To raise the bar even further on check-in quality, we have built a pre-verification system to test code before it even reaches the repo, ensuring that any pushed code passes a minimal quality bar. We are looking for a strong technical leader with hardened operational focus to build out new services that unlock key developer scenarios, as our current service offerings only scratch the surface of what’s possible.

The ideal candidate will be passionate about developers, building simple and elegant software solutions, and utilizing agile development processes. This leader has thrived and succeeded in delivering high quality technology products/services in an environment where priorities shift quickly. The candidate is a strong leader who can prioritize well, communicate clearly, and who understands how to drive a high level of excellence with a strong team. You will have the opportunity to work across the stack from cloud-based services to mobile apps and collaborate closely with peers from teams across Amazon.
