Job ID: 2647642 | Amazon Data Services Ireland Limited


Amazon is looking to hire highly motivated Network Engineers to help design, deploy and automate one of the worlds largest and most complex networks. With Amazon Web Services, our goal is to become “The Infrastructure Platform“ to the world and our customers demand the highest quality and reliability for their services. We are expanding at a tremendous rate and our goal is to design, deploy and automate network delivery while maintaining the highest reliability for our customers. Our teams scale the existing network, design new topologies, deploy these topologies and also automate activities where possible.

AWS Infrastructure Services owns the design, planning, delivery, and operation of all AWS global infrastructure. In other words, we’re the people who keep the cloud running. We support all AWS data centers and all of the servers, storage, networking, power, and cooling equipment that ensure our customers have continual access to the innovation they rely on. We work on the most challenging problems, with thousands of variables impacting the supply chain — and we’re looking for talented people who want to help.

You’ll join a diverse team of software, hardware, and network engineers, supply chain specialists, security experts, operations managers, and other vital roles. You’ll collaborate with people across AWS to help us deliver the highest standards for safety and security while providing seemingly infinite capacity at the lowest possible cost for our customers. And you’ll experience an inclusive culture that welcomes bold ideas and empowers you to own them to completion.

- Design, deploy, and scale our network across multiple global datacenters

- Work closely with our software teams in defining the tools that allow us to scale at unprecedented volume
- Create and review documentation regarding new standard operating procedures and process improvement
- Work with data sets related to DC and networking infrastructure, network utilisation, traffic demands and forecasts
- Developing metrics related to health, availability and cost of the network in AWS regions
- Determine what the best network topologies and designs are to minimize cost and latency while ensuring high availability, security and performance, using simulation and optimisation tools

You will possess strong written and verbal communication skills, strong project management and time management skills and have a successful track record of designing simple, scalable solutions and troubleshooting complex network problems and delivering innovative solutions. The desire and ability to work in a fast paced, collaborative environment is essential.
