Amazon CloudFront is a web service which allows publishers to use the worldwide CloudFront content delivery network (CDN) to deliver static and streaming content. Since November 2008, when CloudFront launched, we have been working hard to add new features, improve availability and scale our systems. In that time, we've had a big impact on the CDN space, attracting some major customers and filling a gap in the market.
At Amazon Web Services, we believe in simple, reliable, and low cost systems which serve our customers' needs. We plan to expand our services, our reach, and increase benefits to our customers and we need your help to get there.
Are you a tenacious, ambitious, self-starter with a passion for the CDN market? Amazon CloudFront is looking for people who excel in fast-paced, small-team environments. The Amazon Web Services business requires innovative thinking balanced with a strong customer and quality focus.
Come work on Amazon CloudFront if you want to solve hard problems, work with smart people, and have fun.
