Join Amazon in the fight against COVID-19!

Are you passionate about leveraging technology and data at scale to innovate, drive better decision making and streamline processes? Amazon seeks an experienced DevOps Engineer to join the innovative division of our new COVID-19 testing and Amazon’s global clinical laboratories. We are looking to help protect the health and safety of our workforce and people in their communities. Regular testing on a global scale across all industries would both help keep people safe and help get the economy back up and running. But, for this to work, we as a society need vastly more testing capacity than is currently available and getting that done will take collective action by NGOs, companies, and governments. For our part, Amazon has begun the work of building incremental testing capacity.

This is an exciting opportunity to be a part of a new high-impact space at Amazon. If you are passionate about innovating, building, and scaling high impact business models, this is for you. The successful candidate will work closely with our technology, business and operational partners, to build and operate a robust data lake that will house both PII and PHI data, generate insights, scale data driven operations, systems and decision making. As a system development (DevOps) engineer, you have an opportunity to work along side with a big data team to tackle exciting and challenge data system problems. You will play a lead role on the team to drive identifying operational and security risks and then resolve, mitigate and/or escalate them.
