Job Description

Amazon API Gateway, an AWS service, is rapidly changing how every company - from 2-person startups to the largest of the Fortune 100 - think about building and delivering 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 API Gateway team is growing rapidly and is looking for a Senior Manager of Software Development. In this role you will own and drive exciting new initiatives on API Gateway - from building new features to improving its performance and latency. This is a highly visible position that will interact at all levels of the AWS and Amazon.com businesses and the ability to collaborate effectively with other senior leaders and customers is a key requirement for this role.

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. 


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: http://aws.amazon.com/api-gateway
