Software Development Manager - Amazon Web Services - Berlin

1 week agoBerlin, Germany


Come and join our team to tackle some of the hardest scalability, performance, and distributed computing challenges in the world.

The AWS Commerce Platform provides the back and front-end services that enable AWS customers to purchase AWS services and understand and manage their infrastructure costs.

We process trillions of events per month using stream processing techniques (Kinesis), process billions of line items via map reduce (EMR), and manage artifacts through the latest in database technologies (DynamoDB and Aurora). We process big data and provide tools for customers to interactively understand their bills. We also provide the analytics that let customers manage billions of dollars of IT usage and spending. Because we sit at the nexus of all AWS services and interact directly with end-customers, we also work closely across all AWS teams to ensure that we offer a great customer experience.

Every team needs a manager to reach its goals while leveraging each and every team member strength. If this sounds like you, come and join us.

As a Software Development Manager at AWS, your key responsibilities will include:

  • Hiring, leading, and developing a high performing team of engineers responsible for the development of a broad range of the Identity technology stack
  • Driving a coherent technology roadmap from sometimes ambiguous requirements balancing a focus on long-term ambitious vision with short and medium term customer requirements
  • Participating in the architecture and technology choices that enable a world-class user experience
  • Being a champion for the user: staying up to date with industry innovations, and create functional and engaging features that delight customers
  • Collaborating with colleagues in different countries; ensuring alignment on the long term strategy and vision

Amazon's culture of inclusion is reinforced within our 14 Leadership Principles, which remind team members to seek diverse perspectives, learn and be curious, and earn trust.
