Systems Development Engineer / EC2 - Seattle

We have multiple Systems Engineering positions available at different levels (mid to senior) in Seattle.

We’re building a new team dedicated to expanding our Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) to new customers. We are seeking talented engineers skilled in the art of integration who can bridge gaps between systems, software, and ops – and are not constrained by how “things are usually done”. This new team will focus on delivering solid, scalable systems on an aggressive schedule.

Amazon has a fast-paced environment where we “Work Hard, Have Fun, Make History.” On a “typical” day, systems engineers might deep dive to root cause a customer issue, investigate why a metric is trending the wrong way, consult with the top engineers at Amazon, or discuss new approaches to automate operational issues.

You'll be part of a world-class team in a fast-paced environment that has the entrepreneurial feel of a start-up. This is an opportunity to operate and engineer systems on a massive scale, and to gain top-notch experience in cloud computing. You'll be surrounded by people who are passionate about cloud computing, and believe that world class service is critical to customer success. You'll become a expert at EC2 platform diagnosis, response, measurement, and automation. You will design and build the operational scalability that sustains the platform's growth. You will measure your success and it will be visible.
