Amazon strives to be Earth's most customer-centric company where people can find and discover virtually anything they want to buy online. By giving customers more of what they want - low prices, vast selection, and convenience - Amazon continues to grow and evolve as a world-class e-commerce platform.
This position is inside the Cloud Manager Team, which owns the services responsible for the transactions of creating, modifying, and terminating EC2 Instances. We also own the contract with instance resources such as EBS Volumes and AMIs, and are responsible for driving workflows to ensure that instances launch successfully. We are thus the most pivotal team in EC2, and we're hiring!
You will be responsible for the building and operating core infrastructure that launches hundreds of thousands of EC2 instances every day and manages millions of resources. As a Systems Development Engineer (SysDE) in this team you will have the particular focus on introducing and improving automation in order to drive up the resiliency and drive down the operational costs of the team's services. This will include identifying and resolving issues, as well as automating and improving repetitive processes. You will become intimate with the architecture of our systems and be responsible for diving deep into code, while developing solutions for our customers and services. You will operate in a highly collaborative and fast-paced environment, solving challenging problems at massive scale.
We operate from the Amazon Development Center South Africa, in the heart of the beautiful city of Cape Town. If you're not from Cape Town, we offer comprehensive relocation as a part of our package.
