Job Description

Amazon Web Services is coming to Sydney Australia the week of August 28th to hire Mid to Sr. level Software Development Engineers for multiple locations to include Seattle WA, Dublin Ireland and of course Sydney Australia! Interested in joining us? Take a look at the job descriptions below.

Welcome to AWS, the world leader in cloud services! Our technologies have already become a force that is making a difference in the lives of millions, yet new opportunities arise every day. AWS is growing so rapidly we need to hire software engineers of all experience levels.

Our organization, Kumo, is an AWS team that builds software which is helping customers (from startups all the way to Netflix and NASA) design and manage their AWS resources safely and effectively, we put the obsession in customer obsession. The software our organization produces ranges from tools the enable the support engineers to diagnose and solve customer problems to predictive algorithms that warn customers of potential hazards and inefficiencies.

Our team specifically owns an application that enables support engineers to access AWS services on the customer's behalf and truly forms the basis for the outstanding customer support that AWS is known for. Rather than specializing in any single AWS service our team offers the opportunity to gain broad expertise across all of them. It also offers a unique opportunity to work very closely with your direct customers, Amazon Support Engineers, who are part of the same organization.

We are free to use any modern technologies. On the front-end we are building visualizations with Javascript frameworks like React, Redux and D3. On the backend we perform sever-side computations on AWS Lambda, store and manage data with services like Dynamo DB, RDS, S3, Redshift and CloudSearch.

We are a modern team that follows the best engineering practices like Continuous Deployment. We have invented our own flavor of Agile development process: our engineers work in very small (2-3 people) "project crews" which minimize distractions, overhead and meeting load.

Kumo really combines the culture of a startup, the innovation and creativity of a R&D Lab, the work-life balance of a mature organization, and technical challenges at the scale of AWS. We offer a playground of opportunities for builders to build, have fun and make history. Come join us!
