Job summary
We are looking for an experienced Senior Software Engineering Manager to join the Amazon MQ leadership team. This is an exciting opportunity to build and lead a team of managers and engineers to further grow our fully managed message broker service. #AmazonMQSDM

Our team builds and operates Amazon MQ, which provides AWS customers with the cloud infrastructure for building highly scalable, asynchronous, and fault-tolerant cloud applications. If you are passionate about the challenges of large scale, building cutting-edge technologies, and making applications reliable then the Amazon MQ is the team for you. Amazon MQ is one of the fastest growing AWS services. Customers are rapidly adopting it because they can use open-source technologies like RabbitMQ and Apache ActiveMQ, but without the operational overhead..

You excel at leading developers and managers through collaborative development planning, coaching, and strategic project assignment, and have a track record of building and growing strong engineering teams. You identify future leaders, provide challenging opportunities, and grow their careers. You create a positive culture and participate in efforts to drive improvements within the broader organization. You have exceptional written and verbal communication skills with customers, technical teams, and senior management to collect requirements, describe features/capabilities, product strategy, and influence technical decision-making.

If you are interested in leading and building large-scale web services, have a high quality bar, a flair for innovation, and a passion for solving some of the most challenging problems in the industry, we need you to step into this highly-visible leadership role! You'll have an opportunity to work alongside and learn from the architects of Amazon's infrastructure, and to build a platform that drives success for AWS customers.
