The AMP Server Frameworks team is responsible for providing both frameworks and reference examples for Java applications and services that various AMP engineering teams build on top of. We need to provide our engineering counterparts with reliable, well-tested and documented frameworks. Like widely used open-source frameworks, these APIs and frameworks need to consider backward compatibility, upgrades, transitive dependencies and dependency management. As we evolve and modernize, we need to rev and introduce new frameworks as appropriate. The candidate will be working with a team of other hardworking Java engineers and architects focusing on implementing a feature backlog and roadmap. The frameworks need to incorporate AMPs standard methodologies and incorporate foundational support for core services like logging, statistics collection, distributed tracing and other critical features of services frameworks.
