Job Description

The AWS Service Catalog is looking for an exceptional software development manager to manage our team of customer obsessed software development engineers and web development engineers delivering rapid enhancements in response to customer feedback, often demanding code spelunking into back-end and dependency services to deliver satisfying end-to-end solutions.
The AWS Service Catalog makes it very easy to create, manage and scale individual resources such as EC2 instances, EBS volumes and RDS databases. The AWS Service Catalog extends the Amazon Web Services capabilities by giving developers and systems administrators an easy way to create and manage collections of related AWS resources as a single unit, manage the lifecycle of applications on the Amazon Web Services platform and make AWS the place to run your business.
If you are excited to solve problems that are raised by challenging questions like: How do I see all of the resources my application requires in a single place? How can I reliably duplicate my infrastructure between test, staging, and production environments? How should I name my resources so multiple developers and applications don’t conflict? How can I make sure everything I need started correctly, and in the right sequence? How do I manage and operate my application when it is running and, how can I make sure things are cleaned up reliably and automatically when something goes wrong?
We are looking for a tech-savvy leader to lead the team, interfacing regularly with BD, PM, and customers to understand their innovative use case on our services and extend capabilities to a broader community. Customer requests will demand you develop a multi-faceted team capable of delivering on: full-stack development, back-end services, analytics, machine learning, delivering scalable big-data solutions, data engineering, operational excellence, and more!
