Are you passionate about building, owning and operating infrastructure to enable our secure communication services for National Security customers? If the answer is yes, then Amazon Web Services (AWS) has an exciting opportunity for you.
Joining our team gives you the opportunity to:
Work on a disruptive service that's still in its very early stages
Solve challenging problems that will revolutionize secure connectivity to the cloud
Come join a new growing team of builders and innovators that think outside the box. A team that thinks big and gets process out of the way of development.
That leverages AWS technologies to their fullest to grow a new ecosystem in the cloud. That's committed to low operational burden by designing for it. That puts work-life balance, personal and professional growth as a principle, not a goal.
Software development engineer positions require a depth and breadth of knowledge in design and development, experience with agile methodologies, proficiency in a high-level language, and experience building highly scalable systems involving distributed services and persistent storage. You will own the design of major deliverable and have opportunities to build them from scratch. This is a high visibility and fast-paced environment where you will make a direct impact on the customer experience and the bottom line of the company.
