Job Description

We are building a new set of services within Amazon Web Service (AWS) that will transform many industries and change how people work. This is a rare opportunity to work on a v1 product, being involved in designing the architecture from the ground up. Our team is led by well-known executives who have made significant contributions across multiple disciplines and products, and we are looking for engineers to join us on this journey!

As a high-performing member of our engineering team, you will build and operate services at scale, utilizing existing AWS products such as Lambda, S3, and CloudFront. Surrounded by world-class technical talent, every day will bring new opportunities to be challenged, learn new technologies, and make an impact with our customers.

This role requires ownership, autonomy, and an ability to deliver results, often within the ambiguity of building a v1 product. You enjoy working efficiently to build the right things with limited guidance, and your practical experience raises the bar for both security and ease of use. The team is stronger due to your presence, and you regularly contribute to the professional development of colleagues. You understand the business impacts of technical decisions and guide technology choices to help the team create an amazing experience for customers.

  • Deep understanding of object oriented design and development
  • Demonstrated ability to ship product to customers
