Amazon Corporate LLC Software Engineering Manager (AWS API Gateway) in Seattle, Washington

Amazon's API Gateway group is rapidly changing how every company - from 2-person startups to the largest of the Fortune 500 - 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.We are hiring an Engineering Leader for our Dataplane Integrations team.
