Amazon Cognito handles sign up, sign in, federation as well as advance security features for your web and mobile users at internet scale. Our team is responsible for providing flexible federation mechanisms and integration with other AWS services, making it easy for customers to authorize their end users access to AWS resource. We need brilliant engineers to work with us on this new initiative and help us tackle new challenges.
The challenges SDEs solve for at AWS are big and influence millions of customers and their customers around the world. We are looking for individuals who are passionate about creating new products, features, and services from scratch while managing ambiguity and the pace of a company where development cycles are measured in weeks, not years.

You will be part of a high performing development team that owns end-to-end development for the service.
A successful candidate is a software developer who has the ability to learn quickly and solve challenging problems from scratch, can operate independently demonstrating strong judgement in face of technical problems and successfully deliver projects. Ideally, an interest with security and/or Identity systems would make it easier to hit the ground running. You take pride in writing simple code for complex problems that is secured, performant and stable. If this sounds like you, come join us and help write a new chapter in the computing story for the industry.
