Amazon Web Services Software Development Manager in Boston, Massachusetts


We are looking for a Software Development Manager to play a leadership role on the Amazon FSx service. Launched in a re:Invent keynote in November 2018, Amazon FSx is a brand new AWS service that makes it easy for customers to launch and run file systems in the cloud. Customers already love the service, but we're just getting started. Come join the Amazon Web Services engineering team in our Boston Seaport location overlooking the Fort Point channel as we revolutionize the world of cloud storage!

AWS is a dynamic and rapidly growing business within Amazon, with over a million active customers in 190 countries around the world. AWS has been continually expanding its services to support virtually any cloud workload, and it now has more than 90 services that range from compute, storage, networking, database, analytics, application services, deployment, management, developer, mobile, Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), security, hybrid and enterprise applications. We maintain this rapid pace of innovation by treating each team like its own independent business inside AWS, directly accountable for their customers’ satisfaction, service innovations, growth, and meeting revenue goals.

As a Software Development Manager, you will lead a team designing and building transformative new customers experiences on the Amazon FSx service. Delivering reliable and high-performance services and features at AWS scale requires technical leaders with extraordinary expertise and boundless creativity. At Amazon, managers will interact with customers, understand our business goals, and innovate rapidly, delivering high-quality and ground-breaking functionality.
