  • Job Description

    What do we do here? Amazon Web Services (AWS) runs one of the largest networks in the world. We are putting services and algorithms in place to control the traffic flow across the different fabrics of the Amazon network, taking static topological information as well as real-time network inputs into account.

    Why do we do that? In Amazon, we are always customer obsessed. By responding fast to network changes like scaling, maintenance, failure, security and other types of events, we lower the cost and overhead for customers, while driving up performance, availability and reliability.

    Why now? As we expand the reach of our algorithms, we need to scale and grow our team. We are looking for talented software engineer that want to get hands on experience with Software Defined Networking (SDN), hyper scale data center networks, cloud infrastructure, large-scale software deployments, algorithms and SOA.

    How do we operate in our team? We empower our engineers to take ownership of their realm and make a difference. They start by gathering requirements, diving deep to choose technologies, designing features and spinning new services, coding and reviewing, deploying software across the globe and maintaining services. In AWS, we are nimble and agile, like being part of a startup, innovating while collaborating with smart group of people around you. We are thrilled about software and we are changing the landscape of networking. We operate on an unimaginable scale. We push the boundaries in robustness, fault-tolerance and smart adaptive algorithms that can react intelligently to real-world events. Software engineers on our team contribute to every phase of the development process and deploy scalable software systems worldwide.

    What will you be doing here?
    • Designing and developing network control plane software for highly scaled networks, using SDN and traditional routing/switching solutions.
    • Working with management, customers and development team to develop state of the art solutions, incorporating new technologies and algorithms and innovations.
    Who are we? We are a highly motivated team of software developers who thrive on solving challenging problems and building large-scale distributed software systems.

    Who are we looking for? Smart, talented engineers. You do not need to have networking background up front. Join us if you like working hard, having fun and making history. We do just that.

    Have more questions? Talk to us! We'll be happy to setup an info call to give you more context and details about the job.
