Are you driven by performance? Are you able to identify bottlenecks and design approaches that solve them for a whole class of problems? Do you then find ways to make those problems disappear for the rest of the developer community? The Amazon JDK team is looking for talented engineers skilled in high performance and high scale Java or similar systems (V8, Chakra, .NET...) to work on the future of Java at Amazon. We care about optimization for high scalability, availability, and efficiency, and also about going above and beyond to provide our customers (hint: almost every single engineer at Amazon) with the best possible Java experience.
You will do well in this role if you are able to look clinically at a problem and identify possible root causes and solutions, up to and including authoring modifications or enhancements to the JVM/JDK themselves.
On this team you will be sharing your findings with the rest of the engineering community and contributing improvements back to OpenJDK where possible. You will:
· Iterate, test new ideas, and shape the future vision for services and libraries built on Java.
· Work with development teams across Amazon as your direct customers.
· Use your deep knowledge of the JDK to define how it’s used across the spectrum of products and services developed at Amazon.
