AWS Job: Architect & Designer Position in Turkey

Late last year an entrepreneur from Turkey visited me at Amazon HQ in Seattle. We talked about his plans to use AWS as part of his new social video portal startup. I won’t spill any beans before he’s ready to talk about it himself, but I will say that he has a really good concept, strong backers, and infectious enthusiasm for the online world.

He’s now ready to hire a software architect and designer in order to bring his vision to life. I’ve posted the job below; you can send your resume to if you are interested, qualified, and located in the right part of the world.
