Amazon Development Centre South Africa is looking for passionate software developers to join us and help to solve a challenging set of problems in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)
This vacancy is for the EC2 Placement team which is tasked with implementing a novel mechanism to optimize the placement of customer instances on physical hosts throughout the instance life-cycles. This problem-space is particularly interesting, as it requires us to build systems which solve multi-axis optimization problems in computationally efficient and safe ways. Given EC2's scale, there are wide-ranging and sizeable up-sides to this project.
The ideal candidate will be clearly passionate about the large opportunity that Amazon EC2 presents and about web services in general. We are required by law to verify your ability to work lawfully in South Africa. Amazon requires that you submit a copy of either your identity document or your passport and any applicable work permit if you are a foreign national, along with an updated curriculum vitae.
