Job Description

Do opportunities to work on ambiguous and never-solved-before problems excite you?
Are you interested in scaling challenges that are constantly evolving?
Would you like to *really* contribute, both technically and as a leader in a team?

The Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) Networking team is looking for software engineers who have a passion for diving deep while also being able to see the big picture. We are re-engineering our virtual networking control plane as part of Amazon’s initiative to get EC2 performance to be as close as possible to that of bare metal. This role would involve being part of the team that owns building, scaling, and maintaining high performance software to streamline the management of millions of Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) configurations.

If you are a Software Engineer with a strong background coding in Linux, a passion for improving quality, solving challenging problems and curiosity about virtual networking, then this is your opportunity to own major deliverables and all aspects of the development cycle: scoping, design, implementation, and testing. You will be encouraged to exercise judgment in proactively determining and recommending the best features, designs, and support models based on business objectives, timelines, and resource constraints.

  • Opportunities for growth and leadership - You will have the opportunity to work around both principal engineers and mentor more junior engineers, as well as influence and shape the direction of the service.
  • Direct Customer Contact – The Amazon way is to maintain and enhance what you build. This gives you the opportunity to work directly with customers to understand and guide their needs.
  • Scale New Heights - With cloud adoption accelerating, we are challenged with fun, complex problems to think about scale and grow the service to meet ever increasing demands.

Basic Qualifications

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science or related field
  • Proficiency in programming languages such as C/C++, Java, Ruby, or Python with a strong base in object-oriented design and development
  • Knowledge of professional software engineering practices & best practices for the full software development life cycle, including coding standards, code reviews, source control management, build processes, testing, and operations

Preferred Qualifications

  • 4+ years professional experience in software development
  • 1+ year of MySQL or similar database experience
  • Scripting (Perl Ruby/Python/Shell script)
  • Experience with Linux networking stack and TCP/IP protocols
  • Demonstrated ability to achieve stretch goals in a highly innovative and fast paced environment
