Software Development Engineer, AWS Auto Scaling

Vancouver, BC
Full Time
Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides cloud infrastructure for many of the world's largest companies, and Auto Scaling ensures they have the capacity they require, when they require it. Auto Scaling intelligently and dynamically scales up applications during demand spikes and optimizes cost savings by scaling down when demand lulls. We are building the next generation of Auto Scaling, offering even more "cloud intelligence" to our customers.

Our team now is working on the next version of Predictive Scaling that leverage Machine Learning algorithms to help customers auto scale their AWS resources based on load history.
We are a highly motivated, co-operative, and fun loving team of engineers who thrive on solving challenging problems and building large-scale distributed software systems, and we are looking for a software development engineer to join our Automation and Operational Excellence team.

• You get excited by cloud computing and want to build and manage systems to support the world's largest cloud computing infrastructure.

• You are driven to continuously improve systems and processes, you are passionate about automation and DevOps.

• You have a strong aversion to repetitive manual tasks and fundamentally believe continuous integration and delivery.

The selected engineer will:
• Design, implement, and deploy software tests/testing strategies to evolve and improve the automated tests and infrastructure that enables the team to achieve 100% continuous deployments.

• Design, implement and deploy system management solutions using automation and self-repair rather than relying on alarming and human intervention.

• Create tools that enhance operational workflow and provide positive customer impact.
