Software Development Engineer - AWS Lambda

Job ID: 1104420 | Amazon.com Services LLC

DESCRIPTION

AWS Lambda (https://aws.amazon.com/lambda/) is changing how businesses of any size think about computing in the cloud. Lambda functions offer customers a "serverless" way to create applications. Developers build scalable, fault-tolerant production systems without thinking about infrastructure, capacity management, or large-scale deployments. Many of the hard problems of distributed systems development are abstracted away by Lambda's simple programming paradigm, so that our customers can focus on solving business problems.

Lambda’s Invoke Routing team in Seattle is looking for experienced Software Development Engineers who can help us optimize, evolve, and rethink some of our core system components, to make Lambda even more reliable, better support use cases with stringent latency requirements, and prepare an already high-scale service for several orders of magnitude growth.

If you are passionate about the distributed systems space or lower-level system development and optimization, and you want your work to make an impact in the real world, our team is a great place for you. You will have the opportunity to work with and learn from some of the most experienced engineers in AWS, as you solve deep, technical problems in one of the biggest and fastest growing distributed systems (https://youtu.be/QdzV04T_kec). If this sounds appealing to you, then join us in making Lambda the most successful compute platform on the planet!
