Sr. Manager, New Service, EC2 Networking

Vancouver, BC
Full Time
5 days ago
EC2 Networking has been one of the foundational pieces that has allowed customers to move to the cloud. We manage the traffic flowing through one of the largest networks in the industry, managing billions of requests. EC2 Networking is re-inventing itself again, and on a mission to transform how customers use networking.

We are looking for a Sr. Software Development Manager who wants to build a next-generation networking service that will shift how customers use networking in the cloud. We need someone who will think big, deal with copious amounts of ambiguity, have laser focus on customers, and drive for results. We would like someone who isn't afraid to roll up their sleeves and get things done, but also someone that can use mechanisms to scale as the service grows. At the end of the day, you can't build anything without great engineers and managers, so we want a leader who unblocks and empowers their team, grows and develops them, and unleashes them to solve big problems. You will build this new team of software engineers and manager(s) from the ground up, and then lead them to create this brand new service. As if that isn't enough, this leader will be the first leader in Vancouver for EC2 Networking, and will own site leader responsibilities (e.g. working with facilities, etc.). You'll thrive and succeed in delivering high quality technology products/services in a rapid growth environment where priorities shift quickly.

About Us
1) Inclusive Team Culture
Here at AWS, we embrace our differences. We are committed to furthering our culture of inclusion. We have ten employee-led affinity groups, reaching 40,000 employees in over 190 chapters globally. We have innovative benefit offerings, and host annual and ongoing learning experiences, including our Conversations on Race and Ethnicity (CORE) and AmazeCon (gender diversity) conferences. Amazon's culture of inclusion is reinforced within our 14 Leadership Principles, which remind team members to seek diverse perspectives, learn and be curious, and earn trust.
2. Work/Life Balance
Our team puts a high value on work-live balance. It isn't about how many hours you spend at home or at work; it's about the flow you establish that brings energy to both parts of your life. We believe striking the right balance between your personal and professional life is critical to life-long happiness and fulfillment. We offer flexibility in working hours and encourage you to find your own balance between your work and personal lives. This position involves on-call responsibilities, typically for one week every two months. We don't like getting paged in the middle of the night or on the weekend, so we work to ensure that our systems are fault tolerant. When we do get paged, we work together to resolve the root cause so that we don't get paged for the same issue twice.
3. Mentorship & Career Growth
Our team is dedicated to supporting new members. We have a broad mix of experience levels and tenures, and we're building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship. Our senior members enjoy one-on-one mentoring and thorough, but kind, code reviews. We care about your career growth and strive to assign projects based on what will help each team member develop into a better-rounded engineer and enable them to take on more complex tasks in the future.
