Location: Boston, MA


As a Cloud Software Architect at CloudZero, you will take a lead role helping design and build systems with the humility that comes from knowing the more you know, the more you realize there is to know. You will build systems that have never existed before using AWS or GCP services that may have been released only a month ago. We expect you to be wise but not an expert with a real passion for cloud and serverless computing; solving complex problems in a collaborative environment where mistakes are encouraged.

If you consider yourself to be a multi-year student of AWS services and AWS complexity, are a software developer at heart who understands the architectural trade-offs of working with RDS vs. DynamoDB, enjoy experimenting with SQS, SNS, S3, ECS, Kinesis and RedShift we would like to hear from you. If you think Serverless computing is going to change the world, have architected systems in AWS that can do the Kessel run in 12 parsecs and can share stories of emergent behavior at scale, we would really love to buy you a cup of coffee (or tea).

What we are looking for in more detail:

  • 3+ years of professional experience architecting systems in AWS
  • Skilled individual contributor with experience as a team lead or running a small team
  • Experience using serverless application design patterns and a dream to build new patterns and share them with the community
  • Have worked with Lambda, SNS, SQS, S3, Kinesis, DynamoDB, Redshift, CloudTrail, CloudWatch and VPC with a desire to learn more
  • Comfortable working with IAM permissions, cross-account AWS complexities and what it takes to triage connection challenges
  • Polyglot software engineer with a love for Python (our favorite language)
  • Knowledge of automated build and continuous integration processes, we run 5 minutes from production at all times (see our blog post on continuous integration in the world of serverless)


At CloudZero our team is one that values diversity, honest feedback and the pursuit of knowledge. If that sounds like a good fit drop us a note at to start the conversation.
