Amazon Web Services Software Development Manager, AWS Core Networking in Seattle, Washington
Amazon is seeking an experienced, results-oriented, Software Development Manager.
What do we do here? Amazon Web Services (AWS) runs one of the largest networks in the world. We are putting services and algorithms in place to control the traffic flow across the different fabrics of the Amazon network, taking static topological information as well as real-time network inputs into account.
Why do we do that? In Amazon, we are always customer obsessed. By responding fast to network changes like scaling, maintenance, failure, security and other types of events, we lower the cost and overhead for customers, while driving up performance, availability and reliability.
Why now? As we expand the reach of our algorithms and services, we need to scale to two teams. We are looking for a talented software development manager that wants to get experience with Software Defined Networking (SDN), hyper scale data center networks, cloud infrastructure, large-scale software deployments, algorithms and SOA.
How do we operate? We empower people to take ownership of their realm and make a difference. We work backwards from customer needs, gather requirements, diving deep to choose technologies, designing features and spinning new services, deploying software across the globe and maintaining services. In AWS, we are nimble and agile, like being part of a startup, innovating while collaborating with smart group of people around you. We are thrilled about software and we are changing the landscape of networking. We operate on an unimaginable scale. We push the boundaries in robustness, fault-tolerance and smart adaptive algorithms that can react intelligently to real-world events.
