AWS Lambda is changing the way that companies big and small 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.
The Event Bridge team in AWS Lambda is making it even easier for developers to build new serverless applications, or extend existing systems using serverless technology, by seamlessly integrating services such as DynamoDB, Kinesis, S3, and SNS as "Lambda Event Sources". Our growing team in Seattle is looking for experienced Software Development Engineers who will extend and improve integration, build features that drive customer adoption, and evolve our systems to scale with rapidly increasing customer demand.
Why would you want to join our team?
If you are passionate about solving hard technical problems in the distributed systems space and want your work to make an immediate impact in the real world, this is the place for you. We solve problems on par with leading academic research for the benefit of customers who celebrate our feature launches on social media, constantly demand new features, and - through adoption - force us to invent new ways to scale our systems. If going deep to optimize for scale, latency, and resource usage excites you as much as working backwards from the customer to develop features that not only work, but delight, then join us in making Lambda the most successful compute platform on the planet!
What does it take to succeed in this role?
In addition to meeting the technical qualifications, you need to be creative, responsible, and able to dig deep into emerging technologies. Willing to read research papers, but also move quickly to turn ideas into code that solves customer problems. You should be excited (and a little frightened) by the enormous scale at which we operate. A natural problem solvers, who is able able to think about business problems, operational issues, and software architecture in the course of a single conversation. Curious about our customers' needs and dedicated to turning developers into raving fans. Excited to learn from others while bringing your own novel capabilities and perspectives. Someone who makes the team room both productive and fun to work in.
