Amazon Web Services is looking for Software Development Engineers to develop state of the art Linux based networking platforms. You will join a team of engineers developing embedded routing platforms that enable one of the world's largest and complex networks.
We are seeking engineers with a demonstrated track record of designing and implementing Linux-based solutions on embedded devices, ideally for networking products. We want people who are passionate about changing the way data center networking is done.
Plenty of complexity and scope for your next challenge! Why would you want to work on network devices for Amazon?
You like to get stuff done and solve complex, impactful problems.
AWS develops both the network and the devices, allowing us to innovate in a way that others cannot.
Amazon's network is global in scope and it continues to grow: most of the network runs on our switches and we continue to expand our footprint.
Very large impact: these devices are central to Amazon.com (, AWS and more AWS customers.
A day in the life
There are two main components to forwarding the Linux Kernel and it's constructs for L2/L3 forwarding and management, and the underlying hardware.
Our goal is to have the Kernel state and the hardware state mirror one another, and as such we need people that have expertise in Linux kernel and core networking expertise. Ideally you understand both how Linux manages forwarding as well as how that maps to the underlying forwarding hardware.
About the team
We are the Data Plane team and are split between Cupertino and Seattle and are looking to expand in either site. Our team owns packet forwarding in our networking devices; that is, the core functionality of a networking switch.
