Job Information

Amazon Web Services Systems Development Engineer, API Gateway Dataplane in Seattle, Washington

Description

Job summary

Amazon API Gateway is changing the way that companies big and small think about 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 Amazon API Gateway team is growing rapidly and is looking for engineers who will work on infrastructure, tools, and processes, which enable API Gateway to safely scale rapidly. We are looking for a passionate builder who will remove repetitive processes and make immediate difference in delivering systems that continue to support API Gateway’s growth.

We're looking for an engineer who has a sense of ownership and drive. You will have the opportunity to talk with customers to understand their needs; you will see them adopt the technology you build; and you will use their feedback to inform future development. You should be able to leverage others to get your vision into production at scale. Your ability to lead and influence others through word and action will be key to your success. You will help set a tone for the culture of the team that balances excellence and bias for action.

If you are excited by the prospect of making it easy for developers to build and operate distributed systems, and are intrigued by any of the details above, please reach out – we would love to hear from you.
