Do you want to create the experiences that empower customers to build serverless applications?

We are the Serverless Application Experience team. We own the developer experience that helps customers who want to build, operate, and govern serverless applications that span across multiple AWS services. We ensure customers have a great multi-service experience.

Customers are excited by the vision of serverless: the ability to quickly deliver applications by writing new business logic without needing to become experts in distributed computing and cloud operations. Compared to traditional architectures, customers increasingly build applications using a collection of services, delivering new applications by writing small amounts of business logic connected to other services. This new development approach can be a challenge. Serverless applications are made up of many more parts than traditional applications, and those components and services need to be modeled and managed with tools, CI/CD pipelines, and workflows. We believe this challenge of helping customers "cross the chasm" into serverless development is another opportunity to delight our customers and make them even more successful. We own the end-to-end experience, working across multiple services, for customers who want to build, operate, and govern serverless applications. We work closely with the individual service experience teams to deliver simple, powerful, and reliable tools to help customers get to production as quickly as possible. In other words, while each service (Lambda, API Gateway, EventBridge, SQS, etc.) will continue to develop their individual developer experience, this team will ensure customers have a great multi-service experience.

We seek a leader to build a new high performing team for our Serverless Application Experience. You will thoughtfully hire, retain, and grow engineers. You will focus on the career growth of your team in order to develop our future technical leaders. You will own the delivery of new products and features that delight our customers. You will lead through others and collaborate with partner teams such as PM and UX. You will build a strong team culture that keeps a high technical bar to ensure we make the right technical trade-offs and maintain operational excellence.
