Software Development Manager
- Arlington, VA
The Amazon Web Services (AWS) EC2 Core Platform team in our Herndon and Arlington VA Development Centers is expanding to build new AWS products and services to enrich our customers' use of the AWS Virtual Private Cloud (VPC).
We are seeking a results-oriented software development manager who is passionate about both feature development and operational excellence, who can build and lead a team of world class engineers as they expand, optimize and fine tune our APIs and services to support our ever-increasing scale and our customers' demands for new capabilities.
In this role you will build your team, balance technical and business objectives in a comprehensive roadmap, set the future vision for your teams and the services they own, and provide day-to-day technical direction. If you look forward to stretching yourself technically and delivering high visibility products in the cloud, then Amazon is the place for you. You will be defining, building and supporting VPC services within EC2 which push the limits of software defined networking at massive scale.

Inclusive Team Culture
Our team is diverse! We drive towards an inclusive culture and work environment. We are intentional about attracting, developing, and retaining amazing talent from diverse backgrounds. Team members are active in Amazon's 10+ affinity groups, sometimes known as employee resource groups, which bring employees together across businesses and locations around the world. These range from groups such as the Black Employee Network, Latinos at Amazon, Indigenous at Amazon, Families at Amazon, Amazon Women and Engineering, LGBTQ+, Warriors at Amazon (Military), Amazon People With Disabilities, and more.
Our team puts a high value on work-life balance. It isn't about how many hours you spend at home or at work; it's about the flow you establish that brings energy to both parts of your life. We believe striking the right balance between your personal and professional life is critical to life-long happiness and fulfillment. We offer flexibility in working hours and encourage you to find your own balance between your work and personal lives. This position involves on-call responsibilities, typically for one week every two months. We don't like getting paged in the middle of the night or on the weekend, so we work to ensure that our systems are fault tolerant. When we do get paged, we work together to resolve the root cause so that we don't get paged for the same issue twice.
Mentorship & Career Growth
Our team is dedicated to supporting new members. We have a broad mix of experience levels and tenures, and we're building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship. Our senior members enjoy one-on-one mentoring and thorough, but kind, code reviews. We care about your career growth and strive to assign projects based on what will help each team member develop into a better-rounded engineer and enable them to take on more complex tasks in the future.
