Full-time cloud systems development engineer sought
July 1, 2016 12:10 PM

Hi! One of my colleagues is moving away, which means I'm on the lookout for a new coworker. Please consider being my next coworker...especially if you write good wiki docs.

This job is as a System Development Engineer at Amazon Web Services in The Hague, Netherlands, where we write and run Amazon WorkMail. As sysdevs, we're responsible for designing and running operational tools, security, and generally doing things to preserve the sanity of a small herd of owner-operator developers, like making sure they don't have to worry about their servers. You're devops? You're a sysadmin? You're a jack-of-all-trades systems wrangler? You're an SRE? You...you're like... you're like me!

We <3 our paying customers and our developers (who are also our customers), and want to build things to make their lives awesome...then we go do it, because wanting isn't all that much fun on its own. We automate all that can be automated, we give our inventions silly names, we keep the lights on. Come, let us sing the song of our people together. (It goes a little like "git, I'm going to detach YOUR head." Or at least that's what it sounded like to me yesterday.)

The public posting is at https://www.amazon.jobs/en/jobs/421343. Relo and visa sponsorship are possible, 25 days vacation, English speaking company but all the hagelslag you can eat at lunchtime, etc etc. Plus, since this is NL, you get up to half off a fancypants new bicycle every 3 years, which you can park in our swanky bike room, because bikes. Please feel free to MeMail me if you have questions!

(I'm sorry I can't fill out the salary field specifically -- I'm not the hiring manager, and I don't know what range they got approvals for. I'm just a MeFite lookin' for other MeFite system wranglers...if only so we can have more IRLs 'round these parts.)

payscale: commensurate
job type: full-time
