Job Description

Amazon API Gateway is changing the way that companies big and small think about APIs. API Gateway is the front-door of the Serverless revolution, an approach that lets customers turn business logic and application code into scalable, fault-tolerant production systems without requiring every developer to become an expert in distributed systems, deployment technologies, and infrastructure management. API Gateway turns daunting tasks such as traffic management, authentication and authorization, monitoring and API versioning into easily configurable steps. It then helps companies to build their developer eco-systems and turns their data sets and business logic into new revenue streams.

The Seattle-based Amazon API Gateway team is growing rapidly and is looking for talented Software Engineers who can help us create the massively scalable and powerful service. If you are excited about cloud computing and architecting highly available and large-scale services used by millions of users, then join us in making the Serverless revolution ubiquitous. 

You will own and help driving exciting new initiatives on API Gateway - from building new features to improving its performance and latency. Along with this, you will interact with our customers (from mobile developers to large enterprises) to ensure their needs are met; clear, professional communication with other developers and customer representatives is an important part of the job. This customer interaction is a unique opportunity to feel first-hand the impact of your work.

What does it take to succeed in this role? Excited (and a little frightened) by the scale at which we work. A roll-up-your-sleeves type. Able to think about business opportunities, operational issues, and architectural diagrams in the course of a single conversation. Intellectually curious and dedicated to turning developers into raving fans. Someone who makes the team room both productive and fun to work in. Excited to learn from others while bringing your own novel capabilities and perspectives.

We guarantee that your work in our team will be deeply interesting, ground-breaking and challenging. For more information, visit the Amazon API Gateway page:
