1 month agoArlington, VA


We are looking for a passionate, hard-working, and talented Software Development Manager who has experience building innovative, high volume applications that customers love and who enjoys managing people. Growing, motivating, and mentoring your team is the most important part of this role.

You will lead a team of talented engineers building AWS CodeArtifact, a managed artifact repository service launched in June 2020. You will have an enormous opportunity to impact the everyday experience of thousands of developers both inside and outside of Amazon.

The ideal candidate understands software development. You've kept your technical skills reasonably current, to the point that you can still contribute to architecture discussions. You regularly take part in troubleshooting exercises and drive technical post-mortem discussions to identify the root cause of complex issues.

On this team you will play a leading role in the development Code Artifact. You will:
• Help define the vision, designs and roadmap for Code Artifact.
• Work with development teams inside and outside Amazon as your core customers.
• Identify and eliminate developer pain points in multiple languages and toolchains.
• Work closely with remarkable engineers and business leaders on hard problems.
• Build your team by mentoring and growing the engineers who report to you.

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.

Work/Life Balance
