We are looking for a senior software technical lead who enjoys diving deep into the world’s most challenging software challenges and relishes the opportunity to hold his/her team to the highest standards in architecting, developing and deploying everything the team builds. Specifically, we are looking for a senior “lead from the front” engineer who will own and drive the architecture, design and development for a brand-new technology platform for managing events, and then guide this effort to bring it to the AWS developer population as a platform for events-as-a-service.

AWS events are high profile events and this role (and team) will design and build a state of the art event platform to power the events and the customer experience - pre-event, onsite and post-event.

§ A Master’s degree in Computer Science, or equivalent work experience.
§ 5+ years of “hands-on” building of large scale, distributed systems & web farm applications.
§ Preferably, an active contributor/creator of open source software frameworks (both web and server-side technologies)

Preferred Qualifications
