Software Development Manager - AWS Developer Tools

Do you want to build platforms and services that fundamentally improve test automation for your fellow software developers? The AWS Test Automation Platform space, part of the Release Automation Space, is looking for passionate software developer manager to transform the way AWS customers improve and write test automation software. We develop frameworks and services that enable teams to improve the quality of their products through testing and feedback at every stage of the software lifecycle. We make best practices the path of least resistance, our tools are automated, intelligent and ubiquitous and wherever possible, we automatically perform actions on behalf of software engineers.
The Release Automation Space space owns the tools used by developers inside of Amazon, as well as a new set of development services available to all AWS customers. The AWS Code services were built from Amazon's own DevOps experience to help developers quickly and reliably deliver software updates. AWS CodeStar, AWS CodeCommit, AWS CodePipeline, and AWS CodeDeploy are a set of pluggable developer tools that are designed to work together and integrate with other tools from start to finish. We are now filling out the suite of AWS Code products and we are looking for engineers that want to shape the developer experience from the ground up.

As a Software Development Manager in our Developer Tools space, you'll be empowered to take ownership of a broad range of responsibilities, such as:
• Directly hiring, retaining, and growing top management and engineering talent within your group.
• Being a clear technical voice, working in partnership with your teams to deliver an architecture which will scale with the needs of the AWS business.
• Quickly and reliably delivering high quality technical solutions that will delight our customers.
• Working on business strategy to define a product roadmap that's compelling and focused on growth, while collaborating with product management teams across Amazon's businesses.
• Meeting with customers to learn and help them shape their own tooling story.
• Clearly communicating at the executive level risks, successes, and missteps as you define and execute on a vision for the product.
