Job summary
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a place where invention, thinking big, and redefining the definition of what is possible are woven into the company culture. We are proud to be the place where cloud computing first came to life, proud of being widely recognized as the industry leader, and excited about what's possible in the years to come. We're looking for people who share that same excitement. Come join us and become part of our diverse team of leaders who make cloud computing attainable for anyone, anywhere, be they hobbyists, startups, not-for-profits, or large multi-national organizations.

The next great evolution of cloud computing is serverless. Are you passionate about the cloud? Do you want to help shape the future of how customers build amazing applications with AWS? Are you a technical individual who is looking to shape the future of serverless technologies? If you have the right blend of passion, enthusiasm, customer advocacy, curiosity and creativity, you may just be right to join our Specialist Solution Architecture team, focusing on serverless technologies.

Increasingly, developers are moving to a "cloud native" application development approach. Serverless Computing allows you to build and run applications and services without thinking about infrastructure or server based operations. With serverless computing, your application still runs on servers, but all the server management is done by AWS. At the core of serverless computing is AWS Lambda and API Gateway. AWS Lambda lets you run your code without provisioning or managing servers. With Lambda, you can run code for virtually any type of application or backend service, and it takes care of everything required to run and scale your code with high availability. Amazon API Gateway is a fully managed API service that makes it easy for developers to create, publish, maintain, monitor, and secure APIs at any scale. Additionally, API Gateway provides companies with an easy way to build/integrate their APIs with the AWS Marketplace and start monetizing their processes and data. These powerful capabilities build on the wider serverless ecosystem of tools including Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon Cognito, AWS Step Functions, Amazon SQS and SNS, Amazon Kinesis, AWS IoT, Amazon S3, etc.
