DESCRIPTION

Job summary
Do you want to work on hard software problems at a global scale? Are you passionate about continually improving the services you own? Come work for AWS Route 53!

Amazon Route 53 is a highly available and scalable Domain Name System (DNS) service offered by Amazon Web Services. We operate in over 50 locations worldwide and provide advanced functionality such as latency-based routing (LBR), Private DNS, Geo DNS routing, DNS failover, and integration with a plethora of AWS services. On top of that, we offer fast change propagation with a 100% availability SLA.

Our services are growing rapidly and are expanding around the world. To meet our ever-growing needs, we are building a team that will work on new ways of deploying and operating our services at scale. If you’re interested in solving hard problems with software, eliminating manual effort, and passionate about delivering results then we want to hear from you!

In the Amazon Route 53 team we like to “work backwards”: start by understanding what customers need and using that to guide our software engineering. We are looking for software development engineers who are experienced in listening to customers, translating their needs to technical solutions, and rapidly iterating our services to quickly put features into customers’ hands. Our best ideas become even better when we get feedback from real customer use. The sooner we can get that feedback, the more quickly we can grow.

  • 2+ years of non-internship professional software development experience

  • Familiarity with the Linux development environment
  • Knowledge of Internet protocols such as HTTP, DNS, TCP, and UDP
