Amazon Opportunity – AWS Linux Cloud Support Engineer

I am a Campus Recruiter here at Amazon and we are looking to hire a select group of highly qualified engineers to be part of building some of the largest and most complex distributed systems in the world for a specific classified consumer community. I was wondering if you could help distribute the following full time opening that we have available to qualified and interested 2017 graduates? This opportunity is available to anyone that graduates and can begin employment before December 31, 2017.

Are you interested in building and delivering the next generation of cloud computing with Amazon while helping the US Intelligence Community agencies implement cloud computing solutions? Are you proficient in Linux/Unix as well as have experience and/or working knowledge in support engineering or system administration? If so, Amazon wants to talk to you! We are looking for customer-focused, analytical, curious, data-driven recent grads to help us support our Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform by engineering our systems on a massive scale to become even more efficient as we continue to grow. You must be a US Citizen and be able to obtain/maintain TS/SCI US Government clearance as well as have demonstrated proficiency in Linux/Unix. I’ve attached a brochure with additional information.

If you’re interested in this opportunity please apply and submit your application here and we will soon follow up with regards to next steps!
