Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a dynamic and rapidly growing business within Amazon.com. Identity and Access Management (IAM) has been strategic to AWS from the early years. We are pioneers in areas such as identity management, access control, security, and providing fundamental platform capabilities to all AWS services.
Now we are embarking on a new initiative to further expand the portfolio of AWS Identity services to embrace the new era of mobile applications and Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices. As AWS continues to grow rapidly, we are building the next generation of IAM platform that is best suited for the cloud in the future. This is an area that requires building some of the largest massive scale distributed systems in the world. It represents a unique opportunity to contribute in developing Tier-0 platform services for AWS from the ground zero with security, scalability, high availability, and low latency in mind from day 1.
We are looking for software development engineers who take pride in tackling hardest challenges, excel at working in an agile environment, and get excited about owning critical platform services that serve customers globally every second of the day. You will own design, implementation, testing, deployment, and operation of the new global distributed systems that are core to all AWS services.
