AWS users want to know what's going on in their account. CloudTrail provides a DVR for activity within users' AWS accounts. CloudTrail allows AWS users to answer the question of who/what/when/where within their account. CloudTrail quickly became a critical component of customers' use of AWS, particularly enterprise use. We integrate with virtually all AWS services. CloudTrail is the place for people up to the challenge of processing huge amounts of super important data.

CloudTrail has grown significantly since its launch in 2013, but we're still just scraping the tip of the iceberg of what's possible. We are looking for strong software development engineers to help us deliver next-level value to customers. There are many new opportunities for growth in CloudTrail, and we need experienced software engineers to help define the direction and drive toward it.

If you are interested in living every day at the forefront of high scale and cutting edge distributed technologies, we want you to help us build this next generation service. Come be part of the revolution we're creating!
