DESCRIPTION

The Amazon Networking organization is hiring, and we're looking for motivated, best-in-class System Development Engineers (SysDEs) to join our Data Center Network Engineering Systems team. Within Networking, we're confronting and solving complex and high-stakes challenges. Our teams support all aspects of connectivity to/from Amazon and the outside world, as well as the connectivity between Amazon's data centers and services. As a member of one our teams, you will play a part in designing and operating networks that simply cannot fail, must scale infinitely, and can never constrain growth or innovation. If working on the networks that support the world's largest cloud provider and Earth's most customer-centric company interests you, please read on!

For this role, we are seeking System Development Engineers to join our Data Center Network Engineering Systems team. This team is a hybrid team with Network and System Development Engineers working in tandem to build controller-based routing solutions to support the rapidly expanding Data Center Networks. You'll work closely with other teams making up the larger Data Center Network. This is an opportunity to join a team where you can heavily influence the strategic and day to day decisions that shape how the team and our products mature.

System Development Engineers in this team focus on developing scalable and operable system designs that allow us to automatically deploy, configure and operate our in-house built route server solution. Our engineers require a strong coding skillset, detailed knowledge of software development best practice, depth in Linux operating systems and networking.

Candidates should have experience working on and driving large projects with ambitious timelines and ideally using agile methodologies to manage their delivery. We expect engineers to work closely with peer and dependency teams within Networking to deliver the right solutions for our customers. The ability to collaborate and influence are a must. Our Engineers contribute materially to each team's roadmap, and constantly help us to determine what's most important. Together, you and your leadership team will decide on the projects that best support your team's mission.

This is an excellent opportunity to join Amazon's world class technical teams, working with some of the best and brightest engineers while also developing your skills and furthering your career within one of the most innovative and progressive technology companies anywhere.
