Would you like to join a team focused on producing high-quality technical content for one foundational product of Amazon Web Services (AWS)? As a member of the AWS CloudFormation service documentation team, you’ll be responsible for creating a wide range of both admin- and developer-focused content (such as getting started guides, conceptual overviews, tutorials, and API references) for CloudFormation, as well as for its vibrant ecosystem of open-source framework and tooling.

It helps you leverage a wide range of AWS services such as Amazon EC2, Amazon SNS, Elastic Load Balancing, and Auto Scaling to build highly reliable, highly scalable, cost-effective applications in the cloud without worrying about creating and configuring the underlying AWS infrastructure.
