On the heels of Amazon’s successful launch of its South African customer service centre, comes the news today that Amazon Web Services (AWS) is launching a new AWS Developer Support office in Cape Town.

AWS is a collection of remote (cloud) computing services, the most popular ones being EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud) and S3 (Simple Storage Service). AWS Developer Support provides technical assistance for these services and others to its customers around the world as they build applications on top of AWS services. Other AWS services include Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), Amazon DynamoDB, and Amazon CloudFront.

“Amazon has had a software development center in Cape Town for a number of years, and we’re delighted to bring new technical jobs to the region with the launch of the AWS Developer Support office,” said Brent Jaye, Director of AWS Developer Support and Customer Service. “Cape Town has proven to be a great location for finding the top talent we need to support the continued growth of our business.”

When can we expect AWS Developer Support to come into service? By mid-2012 and roles are currently available for support engineers, systems engineers, software developers and technical managers. Amazon encourages those interested to apply at http://aws.amazon.com/careers/. Qualified candidates will be invited to participate in interviews on April 25.
