Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) enables customers to build large scale highly available services. ELB automatically distributes incoming application traffic across multiple targets, such as Amazon EC2 instances, containers, IP addresses, and Lambda functions. ELB provides the entry point for building hyper scale, fault tolerant applications. While ELB has seen tremendous growth since launch we are still in the early stages of realizing its full potential.
As a Software Development Engineer (SDE) for ELB High Performance Data Plane , you will be responsible for working with group of top talent in the design and development of a new high performance data plane to enable micro seconds latency for hundreds of billions packets per second and handle significant percentage of Internet traffic. In this role, you design and implement new technologies to enable ELB scaling at massive scale.
Success in this role requires the SDE to be willing to learn how to build high performance low latency distributed networking applications. We will provide you mentorship to become familiar with inner workings of packet processing at the kernel level and adept at writing code for distributed packet processing. You will learn from experts in integration of software components and Application Programming Interface (API) development in multiple languages. You will have the opportunity to build skills in operational excellence for large scale systems, failure monitoring and recovery, metrics and visibility. What you need is strong fundamentals in Computer Science and a desire to learn and work hard. Come work hard and make history with ELB.
