DESCRIPTION

AWS has the most services and more features within those services, than any other cloud provider€“from infrastructure technologies like compute, storage, and databases€“to emerging technologies, such as machine learning and artificial intelligence, data lakes and analytics, and Internet of Things. AWS Platform is the glue that holds the AWS ecosystem together. Whether its Identity features such as access management and sign on, cryptography, console, builder & developer tools, and even projects like automating all of our contractual billing systems, AWS Platform is always innovating with the customer in mind. The AWS Platform team sustains over 750 million transactions per second.

The Open Source Amplify Framework team is continuously innovating and expanding our mobile and web framework to enable developers to quickly build, deploy, and manage native, web, and hybrid apps.

We have a vibrant open source community on GitHub with contributors and customers across the world.

We need to support our customers when they open feature requests, bug reports and pose questions in the many places our customers expect us to be.

Our Support Engineers work with AWS customers on GitHub, Stack Overflow, Discord and other developer community sites to help them build on AWS.

A successful candidate will be someone with solid coding skills who is customer focused, and who can multi-task and utilize both written & verbal communication skills to help our diverse range of customers resolve their technical issues.

· Work with leadership on process improvements and strategic initiatives
Learn and Be Curious. We have a formal mentor search application that lets you find a mentor that works best for you based on location, job family, job level etc. Your manager can also help you find a mentor or two, because two is better than one. In addition to formal mentors, we work and train together so that we are always learning from one another, and we celebrate and support the career progression of our team members.

Inclusion and Diversity. Our team is diverse! We drive towards an inclusive culture and work environment. We are intentional about attracting, developing, and retaining amazing talent from diverse backgrounds.
