  • You can articulate and document architectural patterns in AWS and how best to implement them.
  • You have experience with AWS Lambda serverless computing and architecture.
  • You have hands-on experience with S3, Lambda, EventBridge, DynamoDB, RDS, SQS, and SNS.
  • You can design cloud-based solutions with an understanding of performance and scaling.

  • Ability to work both independently as well as collaboratively across cross-functional internal teams.
