Full Time
15 hours ago
How would you like to design and launch new features to help customers build and manage their mission-critical global applications? The AWS Route 53 team in Vancouver is looking for a software development manager to lead a world class team who owns the design and development of new Route 53 features and services.

Amazon Route 53 is a highly available and scalable DNS-based naming and routing service offered by Amazon Web Services. We enable high availability for most AWS services via intelligent routing either directly or indirectly. Our service powers most of Amazon retail operations and a significant portion of the Internet.

We operate in over 50 locations worldwide and provide advanced functionality such as latency-based routing (LBR), Private DNS, Geo DNS routing, DNS failover, and integration with a plethora of AWS services. On top of that, we offer fast change propagation with a 100% availability SLA. Our service is quickly growing and we are expanding in multiple directions: adding new features and functionality to our services, better traffic management, new AWS integrations, improving our health check capabilities, and expanding with new services.

We are looking for a leader to take one of our Vancouver teams to the next level. As a leader for the team you will be responsible for significant improvements to the service, making tough prioritization decisions, iterating and innovating, and thinking through distributed systems problems.

You need to be technically deep, be able to communicate clearly, and have the ability to build a strong team that delivers results. The Amazon Web Services business requires creative engineering and a strong customer focus, and you will work with your team and senior leadership to develop and launch high quality services.

About Us

Inclusive Team Culture
Here at AWS, we embrace our differences. We are committed to furthering our culture of inclusion. We have ten employee-led affinity groups, reaching 40,000 employees in over 190 chapters globally. We have innovative benefit offerings, and host annual and ongoing learning experiences, including our Conversations on Race and Ethnicity (CORE) and AmazeCon (gender diversity) conferences. Amazon's culture of inclusion is reinforced within our 14 Leadership Principles, which remind team members to seek diverse perspectives, learn and be curious, and earn trust.

Work/Life Balance
Our team puts a high value on work-life balance. It isn't about how many hours you spend at home or at work; it's about the flow you establish that brings energy to both parts of your life. We believe striking the right balance between your personal and professional life is critical to life-long happiness and fulfillment. We offer flexibility in working hours and encourage you to find your own balance between your work and personal lives. This position involves on-call responsibilities, typically for one week every three months. We don't like getting paged in the middle of the night or on the weekend, so we work to ensure that our systems are fault tolerant. When we do get paged, we work together to resolve the root cause so that we don't get paged for the same issue twice.

Mentorship & Career Growth
Our team is dedicated to supporting new members. We have a broad mix of experience levels and tenures, and we're building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship. Our senior members enjoy one-on-one mentoring and thorough, but kind, code reviews. We care about your career growth and strive to assign projects based on what will help each team member develop into a better-rounded engineer and enable them to take on more complex tasks in the future.
