Do you want to shape the future of virtualized (SDN) networking in the world€™s biggest public cloud?

The Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) VPC Packet Pipeline team owns the packet pipeline that runs right beneath all our customer's EC2 VPC instances, adding features like firewalling (security groups), billing and monitoring as we touch every single packet on every single host across our massive worldwide fleet. Our vision is to combine the performance of bare metal networking while maintaining all the benefits of the cloud, including delivering features not possible on bare metal i.e. true Software Defined Networking (SDN).

We are growing fast, and are looking for a Sr. SW Engineer to help build our next generation of automation and big-data analytics services to help scale AWS VPC. In this role, you will be part of a team that builds scalable frameworks and highly available services to automate anomaly detection (e.g. crashes, network performance degradation), remediation strategies, data warehouse analytics, and data visualizations across a large organization. This will require a thorough understanding of AWS networking components, back-end software development using a variety of AWS services, full-stack web development, and familiarity with exciting computer science fields such as machine learning and real-time data processing of time series data. You will also have the opportunity to impact and influence a wide range of teams across EC2 by developing frameworks used in validation of end-customer workloads on both production and pre-production environments.

Your responsibilities will include:
· Being the lead engineer on a team, mentoring junior engineers, ensuring the right development practices are followed.
· Being very hands-on; working with an engineering team to manage the day-to-day development activities by leading architecture decisions, participating in design reviews, code reviews, and implementation.
· Maintaining current technical knowledge to support a rapidly changing technology stack, always being on the look out for new technologies and working with management and development teams in exploring new technologies.
· Communicating with users, other technical teams, and senior management to collect requirements, describe software product features, technical designs, and product strategy.
