Amazon Web Development Engineer
The EC2 UX Team develops the EC2 website (or Console as we call it) designed to provide a simple way to provision instances, networks and application services in the Cloud over the Internet.
Our Console allows you to use what you need when you need it. Choose from multiple instance types, operating systems, and software packages.
Configure the memory, CPU and storage optimal for your operating system, application and business need. Interact with instances in the Cloud as if it were your own onsite bare metal machine while retaining full control.
