Do you want to help shape customer experience for millions of AWS customers? Are you excited about building something from the ground up? Come join a brand-new team, and help design and deliver the next generation of the AWS Support Subscription experience. You will work with both external and internal customers, translating complex business requirements to a scalable, maintainable and extensible design, and deliver using Agile project management methodologies.

You will have access to Amazon's Senior Engineers to help you on this new journey and grow your skills. You will have opportunities to mentor and coach other engineers on the team. You will get firsthand experience working with AWS services such as API Gateway, Lambda, DynamoDB, CloudWatch, and more. This is your chance to make the business value case for the best technology to build with, before it becomes entrenched in "what we use" or "how we do things".
