Amazon Development Centre South Africa is looking for passionate software developers to join us and help to solve a challenging set of problems in a space packed full of opportunities. The Cape Town based Amazon Web Services (AWS) Development Center plays a key role in building the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)
. EC2 is pioneering cloud computing by providing resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It gives any developer complete control of their computing resources and lets them run on Amazon’s proven computing environment.
The advertised position is within the team responsible for the EC2 customer facing APIs. We focus on achieving high availability, low latency and consistent customer experience at scale. As such, we develop performant, high volume customer facing web services and integrate with many other EC2 service teams. We're involved in almost all feature projects which requires integrating with many different Amazon services, thinking deeply about what makes a good API and working hard to ensure backwards and forward compatibility and consistency. Finally, the EC2 APIs are a critical very-high volume service, and working at scale regularly presents unique and interesting challenges!
The ideal candidate will be clearly passionate about the large opportunity that Amazon EC2 presents and about web services in general. Amazon.com offers a demanding, exciting and rewarding experience, with opportunities to work with the world's best computer scientists on some of the most interesting problems.
