Job Description

AWS Incident Response is at the heart of high availability of Amazon Web Services. We make customer impacting events shorter and less frequent by providing large scale event and incident management. Our automated tooling quickly identifies the cause of an issue and helps mitigate its impact, and much of our engineer time is spent on projects to improve the tooling and automation. We also provide manual incident management for AWS and other Amazon groups, directing the resolution of an issue with service teams, and diving deep into those events to drive improvements to the tooling. It's an exciting time to join our team as we are rapidly growing and expanding our offerings.

As a Senior Support Engineer on the TechOps team your mission is reducing the duration, frequency, and impact of issues within the AWS and Amazon infrastructure. You will direct the resolution of high visibility incidents by leading conference calls and teams across the globe. You will mentor others, helping them grow their incident management skills. You'll dig into data to identify trends, and will propose and drive projects so that the next event is shorter or avoided entirely. Your work will make an impact across all of AWS with executive level visibility. If interested, you'll also have the opportunity to grow your coding skills by taking on development projects matched to your ability level. If you're looking for a team with great growth potential and an opportunity to make a huge impact, this is the team to join.

Key job responsibilities
• Drive the resolution of large scale customer impacting issues as part of a team rotation, including some weekends and holidays
• Identify and troubleshoot recurring platform issues and own projects to drive improvements
• Participate in Agile sprints to evolve business processes and technologies
