EC2 Networking has been one of the foundational pieces that has allowed customers to move to the cloud. We manage the traffic flowing through one of the largest networks in the industry, managing billions of requests. EC2 Networking is re-inventing itself again, and on a mission to transform how customers use networking.
We need your help though! We are looking for a Sr. Software Development Engineer who wants to build a next-generation networking service that will shift how customers use networking in the cloud. We need someone who will think big, deal with copious amounts of ambiguity, have laser focus on customers, and drive for results. We would like someone who isn't afraid to roll up their sleeves and get things done. At the end of the day, you can't build anything without great engineers, so we want a technical leader who grows and develops the other engineers on the team too.
A successful candidate is a strong engineer who is eager to grow their technical craft and help elevate the team around them. You're eager to be part of an exciting business and to add impactful value to internal and external customers alike.
