Imagine yourself as part of a team stretching the boundaries of cloud computing, adopting the latest technologies, and rapidly resolving unique SaaS incidents. In this role you'll act as one part firefighter and one part super sleuth. On a given day you might discover that a Docker container is down because the daemon is failing and you need to investigate which service is causing the conflict. Or, you might have to investigate an abuse report from AWS and determine if the issue is caused by a hacked server or a customer abusing the platform. Because there's always something new, your technical skills will never become obsolete.
If you're excited about the idea of diving into the unknown and taking on novel cloud computing challenges that affect thousands of users, then this is your opportunity to join a global SaaS operations support organization unlike any other. As Amazon's #1 centralized database partner, we are building new possibilities with today's cloud computing technologies to provide services for a rapidly-growing network of business customers worldwide.What You Will Be Doing
