    About you
    You’re looking for an opportunity to have world-changing impact at one of the most innovative companies on Earth. You’re excited about open source and want to help design, deliver, and operate a revolutionary new AWS service, Amazon EKS. You are a strong developer with a background in large scale distributed systems, Linux systems development, and/or networking, and are energized by the idea of helping us make AWS the best place to run containers and Kubernetes.

    About us
    We’re a relatively new team of AWS engineers that are building a core set of services to help our customers to run and use Kubernetes at scale on AWS. CNCF in 2017 found that 60%+ of Kubernetes workloads run on AWS. Given the massive scale and customer demand on Amazon EKS, it is is our goal to contribute upstream to strengthen the design, scale, security and stability of the Kubernetes project and ultimately Amazon EKS.

    Some things you will do here
    · Collaborate upstream to integrate AWS services with Kubernetes
    · Maintain upstream projects related to Amazon EKS and Kubernetes
    · Expand participation of AWS in Kubernetes SIGs
    · Introduce architectural improvements to Kubernetes
    · Expand upstream test coverage for Kubernetes on AWS and EKS
    · Work on large scale problems both on the control plane and data planes
    · Incubate revolutionary ideas that benefit Kubernetes and Amazon EKS
    · Troubleshoot and fixing bugs reported by customers
    · Mentor junior engineers on design and coding best practices
    · Represent AWS technical chops in conferences

    Some things we like about you
    · Your written and spoken English are excellent
    · You've experience working with (or – top of the pile! – on) AWS
    · You've been writing software since you could tie your shoes or 4+ years
    · You're experienced with strongly-typed languages and know what a pointer is
    · You're familiar with distributed system design and don’t recoil or hiss at either

    Basic Qualifications

    • Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science or related field, or 8+ years of experience
    • Experience with Computer Science fundamentals (ex. object-oriented and distributed systems design, data structures, algorithm design, problem solving, and complexity analysis

    Preferred Qualifications

    • Experience with Kubernetes, docker, AWS technologies, Linux
    • Experience leading the design, implementation, and operation of distributed software systems that have been delivered to customers
    • Experience communicating with users and stakeholders to collect requirements, present and review technical designs
    • Development experience with Go programming and/or C/C++/Java
