Job Description

We are seeking talented engineers, skilled in Networking (LAN and WAN) technologies, who are not constrained by how “things are usually done”.

Amazon has an exciting environment where we “Work Hard, Have Fun, Make History.” On a typical day, cloud support engineers might deep dive to root cause a customer issue, investigate why a metric is trending the wrong way, consult with the top engineers at Amazon, or discuss radical new approaches to automate operational issues.

You'll be part of a world-class team, in an environment that has the entrepreneurial feel of a start-up. This is an opportunity to operate and support systems on a massive scale, and to gain top-notch experience in cloud computing. You'll be surrounded by people who are incredibly smart, passionate about cloud computing, and believe that world class service is critical to customer success. You'll become skilled at cloud platform diagnosis, response, measurement, and automation. You will measure your success and it will be visible.
