We are already putting together our 2011 plans for AWS. I can't tell you what we are planning to do, but I can tell you that we need to hire some more great people in order to turn these plans into the kinds of amazing services that you have come to expect from us.
The AWS Jobs Page contains two links -- one to jobs within the US, and another to jobs outside of the US. As I write this there are 230 open positions in the US and another 20 open positions in Europe, Asia, and South Africa. We need developers, development managers, testers, test managers, product managers, marketing managers, developer support engineers, technical program managers, sales representatives, and business development managers.
Today I would like to highlight three teams that are doing important work that happens behind the scenes. The bill processing, payment processing, and account management teams are responsible for the technical infrastructure that stands behind AWS and allows us to offer AWS on an economical pay-as-you-go basis. Each of these teams must deal with immense amounts of complex, multi-dimensional data and must work cooperatively with a number of other Amazon teams. I asked the leaders of the teams to tell me a bit more about what they do and the answers were very interesting. This is what they told me:
Here is a sampling of the open positions:
- Software Development Engineer.
- Senior Software Engineering Manager.
- Software Development Engineer - AWS Platform Services.
