CloudFront is looking for experienced Software Development Engineers to help develop, deliver, and operate cutting-edge features both to delight our customers and to help CloudFront continue to scale to ever increasing heights. The CloudFront Control team is at the intersection of CloudFront core services and customer-facing APIs. Thus, there is the need and opportunity to impact both. Work on projects that will transform how people produce and consume content in the cloud. Help us build a world where all the computing power and contents in the cloud perform as if they are right next to the customer.
CloudFront is part of Edge Services, with a mission to bring the Internet closer to end users, speeding up their overall experience. Edge Services provides highly available, low-latency, and scalable platform capabilities: CloudFront for content delivery network (CDN); Route 53 for domain name service (DNS); and Shield for anti-DDoS detection and mitigation systems.
This is an opportunity to design, build and operate a better and secure Internet.
