Software Dev Engineer Intern – Bucharest – Firecracker
Paid internship at Amazon Romania · Starts after academic term
  • room București

If you are interested in learning system software engineering and passionate about understanding and contributing to the software platforms that the AWS cloud runs on, then this is the internship for you!

At the Amazon Development Center, Bucharest, part of Amazon Web Services (AWS), we work on global-scale compute platforms, with special focus on serverless & container virtualization technologies, trusted compute, and server fleet tooling for AWS EC2. We invent, own, and operate core compute platforms for EC2, Amazon, and the cloud.

In this role, you will work on Firecracker, an open source virtualization technology that is purpose-built for creating and managing secure, multi-tenant container and function-based services that provide serverless operational models. Firecracker is already the basis of AWS Lambda and AWS Fargate, while other teams such as Kata Containers and Weaveworks have used Firecracker to enable Kubernetes pods to be isolated within microVMs. Firecracker has an ambitious roadmap of continued innovation in the quickly expanding serverless container and function space, all of it built out of the Amazon Development Center, Bucharest - come help us make history!

Your main goal here will be to work on your growth as an engineer. You will ramp up with the support of your dedicated mentor, and then you will work on a team deliverable that is both a good learning opportunity and has practical applicability.
