Job summary
Would you enjoy broad yet equally deep scope that impacts all AWS systems globally? Have you ever wondered what it would be like to build massively scalable systems that are used by the world's largest cloud infrastructures? AWS Data Center Automation (DCA) continues to pioneer new functionalities and platforms, and our teams are architecting, building and operating scalable services that are at the core of AWS software infrastructure. DCA is responsible for building out the systems and software that orchestrate the physical work processes that occur inside all of AWS' Global Data Centers.

Who is our customer: Our software teams develop the platforms and tools that are used in Data Centers to automate server and equipment lifecycle to provide capacity to all AWS products reliably and efficiently.

What you will do: Our developers own the projects that set the bar for Amazon and the industry for platform level service, effectively enabling the data center operations at scale by writing the software that manages all aspects of global AWS data center operations. In this role you will be building the next generation of platform level software. You regularly work with senior AWS leadership to plan for the future.

Why it's high-impact: Our systems ensure that AWS data centers run correctly and efficiently and that our leadership has visibility into every step of every process.

What's the challenge: Our space is fast-moving, and has a large number of ambiguous and difficult challenges. Our projects require deep technical and software expertise and the ability to work within a fast moving, startup environment in a large company. You will be responsible for identifying solutions, trying ideas, given space to fail and iterate to produce products that your customers love.

Who would succeed in this role: Deeply technical engineers, who stay close to the customer as well as the architecture and design. A person who works autonomously and dives deep in to a problem to deeply understand how things work, when to make subtle change, and when to disrupt the status quo to achieve the right results.

Where can you work: This position can be based in Bellevue, WA or Cupertino, CA.
