Job description


Have you ever thought about helping U.S. Intelligence Community agencies implement innovative cloud computing solutions and solve technical problems? Would you like to do this using the latest cloud computing technologies?

We're looking for an customer driven Systems Development Engineer Intern to join our Special Regions Engineering Team in AWS Marketplace. You will be an important member of a growing team split across two locations using cutting edge AWS technology to help build tools, automation and technical solutions for our internal team, and customers. You'll embrace the opportunity to tackle challenging problems in a fast pace environment that is rapidly growing. You will closely interact with other engineers and serve as a subject matter aspect on the topic of AWS regions supporting the US Government for the organization.
Come join the AWS Marketplace Team in our mission to change the way software are bought and sold! AWS Marketplace enables software sellers to reach all AWS customers; and enables software buyers to easily discover, purchase and consume software. Our goals include enriching the platform to support more diverse selection, improving buyer and seller experience and implementing new ideas to add new dimensions to the product. Our vision is to make AWS Marketplace one stop shop for buying and selling software just like Amazon.com is for retail.

On a “typical” day, System Development Engineers might Dive Deep to root cause a customer issue, investigate why a metric is trending the wrong way, consult with the top engineers at Amazon, or discuss new approaches to automate operational issues. You'll become a master at AWS Services platform diagnosis, response, measurement, and automation. You will design and build the operational scalability that sustains the platform's remarkable growth. You will measure your success and it will be visible.

We're looking for technology leaders for the largest compute service on the internet. This position is perfect for you if you're interested in creating tools and automation so that engineers can be as hands-off as possible. We want our service to be as autonomous as possible, and that can only be done by having bright individuals who understand how to Think Big, simplify solutions to complex unprecedented problems, all in pursuit of the best customer experience possible. Our environment is built for engineers who flourish in creating automation to reduce the operational workload rather than simply performing operational work all day.

You should be an engineer who is focused on developing internal services written in Python, Java, C or a similar language. You also have an appropriate understanding of Linux, networking and cloud services.
Successful candidates will join an elite engineering team, provide troubleshooting and operations support, and innovate to replace operational tasks with scripts and code.

This position requires that applicant selected be a U.S. citizen and obtain and maintain a TS/SCI US Government clearance with polygraph. TS/SCI eligibility is not required to start; however, the applicant selected will be subject to a Single-Scope Background Investigation (SSBI) and must meet eligibility requirements for access to classified national security information. Applicants with a current SSBI, SBPR, or PPR, may be eligible for crossover in accordance with ICPG 704.4.
