Apollo is the answer!

The Apollo team (part of AWS Builder Tools organization) owns the software and systems that helps Amazon's massive developer team community build the cutting edge services and technology that Amazon is known for. Our systems deliver the technology that powers fully-automated continuous deployment workflows and dynamic scaling for some of the world's largest services.

What we do makes a difference, and we're not done yet! We are looking for developers who are passionate about making managing applications in the cloud work for everyone. We have so much more we want to do. Interested in providing containers and serverless infrastructure to Amazon engineers, not just using them? We should talk.

If you have what we're looking for, come join a strong team in a highly-visible organization. You will have a significant impact on Amazon's massively distributed software development environment and help us to build the best continuous deployment and fleet management system in the world.

Help us to write the next generation of systems that controls the software on millions of servers, for tens of thousands of applications, while delivering on the promise of elastic capacity.
