AWS Elemental is an Amazon Web Services company that combines deep video expertise with the power and scale of the cloud. We are looking for a Senior Software Development Engineer focused on optimization to improve the performance of our CPU based video compression components.

As a Software Development Engineer, you will improve the performance of our CPU based video decoders, encoders, and image processing.

You will work on a focused team with clear leadership and a direct ability to solve our customers€™ problems and enable their success. Your work will have a broad reach. Your code will process thousands of video streams around the world, and the final output will be enjoyed by millions of viewers. The full resources of Amazon Web Services are available to us and the only limit is our imagination.


· 2+ years of non-internship professional software development experience
· Programming experience with at least one modern language such as Java, C++, or C# including object-oriented design
· 1+ years of experience contributing to the architecture and design (architecture, design patterns, reliability and scaling) of new and current systems.
· 4+ years experience with optimizing x86 CPU code using vectors (such as SSE, SSE2, AVX, AVX2) and threading


· Video codec development experience, particularly AV1, HEVC, H.264 and MPEG2
