Do you want to impact millions of customers? Do you want to work on open source projects? Do you feel passionate about working with highly scalable and available systems? Do you get excited at the idea of designing and delivering next generation cloud infrastructure? Your quest is finally over!!

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a global leader in Cloud technologies. As an increasing number of enterprises move their critical systems to the cloud, we are in need of high-powered technical talent to delight our customers by building and deploying scalable cloud solutions.

AWS CloudFormation provides an easy declarative way to create, deploy and manage applications and infrastructure in the AWS cloud in an orderly and predictable fashion.
We are looking for software engineers who are self-driven, embrace innovation to deliver meaningful results, and who excel in a fast-paced and sometimes ambiguous environment.

The ideal candidate must be passionate about code quality, demonstrate strong communication and collaboration skills, possess the ability to work independently, and be a self-starter with a bias towards independent problem solving and dealing with ambiguity.

As a part of our team you will:
· Implement open source projects
· Work with various teams and technologies to gain deep knowledge of the architecture of our systems
· Be responsible for diving deep into code design and develop/iterate developer tools that are used across Amazon, AWS and external clients
· Own the entire lifecycle of CloudFormation products, from the design/architecture to implementation and continuous iterative development and deployment of services
· Drive complex features from effective technical design to high-quality code and balance trade-offs in both design and implementation
· Write clean, production ready code that reliably manages enterprise workloads and elegantly handles failures in real world environments at scale
· Actively engage with and nurture open source communities to find and address the most important challenges
· Interface closely with internal and external customers to quickly drive new products, new features and inventive ways forward for new feature development, operational excellence, and DevOps management
· Work effectively both independently and collaboratively with teammates to deliver software successfully and to communicate and socialize your ideas effectively and in a courteous and collaborative manner
· Demonstrate your excellent oral and written communication skills with both technical and non-technical audiences
Amazon has built a reputation for excellence with a mission to create the most customer-centric company in the universe, a company that customers from all over the globe will recognize, value, and trust for both our products and our service.
