Job Description

Come build the future of Linux at Amazon with the Amazon Linux Team!
If you are a software developer who is passionate about building the platform to support the world’s premier cloud computing environment, then this is the job for you.

The Kernel and Operating System team is responsible for the design and maintenance of all of Amazon's core compute platforms, with a special focus on EC2, the Elastic Compute Cloud that is the basis for much of Amazon Web Services (AWS). We're also responsible for tools associated with the performance characterization, qualification, build and deployment of our Linux platforms.

Software Development Engineers work with technical leaders to refine technical direction, and then follow through with detailed analysis, designs, and superior code. They are equally comfortable leading small, focused project teams as well as making major direct contributions to the project. They deliver features with minimal direct oversight.

The baseline individual for this role will be entirely comfortable with the Linux operating system and understand how to develop in languages such as Java, Python, and Ruby in a Linux environment. Experience with Linux package management, version control systems, automated build processes, and software unit testing are a must.
This team creates the very core of the cloud, and is directly responsible for radically changing and improving the way that people use computers - come help us make history!
