Aws Software Development Engineer

2 months agoSeattle, WA


It's official: We handle more data than any other AWS services and now we are building the next generation of AWS front end. Want to learn how you can play a big role in the cloud revolution? Then read on.
Amazon Web Service's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) provides secure, resizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web-scale cloud computing easier and cost-effective for customers. The Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) service is an essential piece of this puzzle, offering massively scalable and performant load balancing technology that our customers don't have to provision and operate.
We are looking for a Software Development Engineer for a new service which will act as the front gate for all AWS services. We will provide each customer their own view of AWS, completely isolated from every other customer. Imagine doing this at scale for millions of customers, handling hundreds of terabits/sec and millions of TPS and 99.99% availability.
We work with protocols at the lowest level. You will work with team of software development engineers who are the best of the best. You are smart, passionate and customer obsessed. You love building new systems which fundamentally change how things are done. You hate status quo and believe that we are only limited by our imagination. You want to do amazing things and build systems that would become part of technical folklore.
This is a high visibility role with the opportunity to positively impact our most-critical customers and their businesses. If you think you are the one we are looking for, we would love to talk to you.

Inclusive Team Culture Here at AWS, we embrace our differences. We are committed to furthering our culture of inclusion. We have ten employee-led affinity groups, reaching 40,000 employees in over 190 chapters globally. We have innovative benefit offerings, and host annual and ongoing learning experiences, including our Conversations on Race and Ethnicity (CORE) and AmazeCon (gender diversity) conferences. Amazon's culture of inclusion is reinforced within our 14 Leadership Principles, which remind team members to seek diverse perspectives, learn and be curious, and earn trust.

Work/Life Balance Our team puts a high value on work-life balance. It isn't about how many hours you spend at home or at work; it's about the flow you establish that brings energy to both parts of your life. We believe striking the right balance between your personal and professional life is critical to life-long happiness and fulfillment. We offer flexibility in working hours and encourage you to find your own balance between your work and personal lives.

Mentorship & Career Growth Our team is dedicated to supporting new members. We have a broad mix of experience levels and tenures, and we're building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship. Our senior members enjoy one-on-one mentoring. We care about your career growth and strive to assign projects based on what will help each team member develop into a better-rounded engineer and enable them to take on more complex tasks in the future
