    Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a dynamic and rapidly growing business within Amazon.com. Identity and Access Management (IAM) has been strategic to AWS from the early years. We are pioneers in areas such as identity management, access control, security, and providing fundamental platform capabilities to all AWS services.

    Now we are embarking on a new initiative to further expand the portfolio of AWS Identity services to embrace the new era of mobile applications and Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices. As AWS continues to grow rapidly, we are building the next generation of IAM platform that is best suited for the cloud in the future. This is an area that requires building some of the largest massive scale distributed systems in the world. It represents a unique opportunity to contribute in developing Tier-0 platform services for AWS from the ground zero with security, scalability, high availability, and low latency in mind from day 1.

    We are looking for a senior software development engineer who is technically very strong, with deep knowledge in web services, backend storage design, and distributed systems, takes pride in tackling challenges, excels at working in an agile environment, and gets excited about owning the architecture of a set of critical infrastructure services that serve customers globally every second of the day. You will provide technical leadership to the team that owns design, implementation, testing, deployment, and operation of the new global distributed systems that are core to all AWS services. As a member of the IAM leadership team you will help set and meet aggressive goals. By working with customers and other leaders throughout AWS, you will help shape our long term technical and business strategies.
