Full Time
Do you want to use social networks to solve problems and generate large business value? Have you thought about how to efficiently find patterns across multiple streams of data? Are you excited about solving a problem that will have an impact on every team in Amazon? If so, you may be a fit for a new team within Amazon Web Services. We are going to use all the above along with cloud computing to disrupt a space rooted in pre-Internet/pre-social networking processes and technology. And when we are done, create a huge competitive advantage for Amazon.

We're a new start-up business in AWS, and we're looking for top engineers to join our team of founders. We're going to be scrappy and agile and deliver value quickly, while also focusing on long-term solutions. As a SDE on this team, you will get to experience the full Amazon Experience of defining solutions from first principles through to delivery. You will be able to select the appropriate languages, frameworks and technologies best suited to solve the problems at hand. You will have full access to all AWS Services and Amazon infrastructure and toolsets. The projects will be Agile-based and generate value with each iteration. We will work at Amazon scale in terms of volumes, latency and availability. If you have worked in an entrepreneurial start-up paced environment, and have strong CS-skills (OO, Algorithms, Data Structures, Design Patterns, etc.), we would like to talk to you about what we are doing and how you can help.
