  • Job Description

    The Network Remediation Software team is looking to hire a senior software development engineer to join the Event Correlation team in Seattle. The team is focusing on correlating events generated by AWS Network services, and investigating novel techniques such as Machine Learning to perform efficient and accurate correlation.

    This team offers a unique opportunity to work at the heart of AWS Networking and become an expert in automating our massive network. The engineers within our team are instrumental in allowing us drive the stability and sustainability of our next-generation networks and to discover innovative ways to automate and scale our network as we expand globally.

    The team today owns a platform which auto-remediates the majority of network events, significantly lowering the ops burden for network engineers, while reducing the outage minutes of the network. Software Development Engineers in this team will work hand-in-hand with Network Engineering teams and Network Operations to automate and invent new ways of operating Amazon's Next-Generation Network. You will work with a group of technologists across the company, leveraging AWS technologies such as DynamoDB. Our platform requires high-availability, high scalability and operational excellence, all while enabling the network to scale effortlessly without human involvement in network operational events.

    Our team faces technical challenges such as: how do we mitigate a critical problem before it manifests as an impairment to our customers? How we detect trends in network incidents and how do we prevent them? What would it take to achieve 100% uptime for AWS Networking? This team is in the early stages of platform development and this is your chance to play a significant role in developing and shaping that platform as the team iterates its development!

    Your role in this team will be to drive the technical design and development of software components that enable the team to progress with its mission. You will be required to architect highly scalable and available systems and lead a team of high-caliber engineers.
