Are you interested in building the user experience for cloud robotics?

AWS RoboMaker is revolutionizing robotics application development, robot simulation, and robot fleet management. We are looking for a frontend engineer to join our team and build world-class web applications for robotics. As a frontend engineer on the RoboMaker team you will have an opportunity to make the most out of the latest frontend web technologies and play an integral role in a product that is changing the robotics industry.

In this role, you will be building interactive applications that our customers engage with on a daily basis, to simplify and eliminate the heavy lifting that robotics developers are facing. You will drive design and architecture decisions that impact long term vision, identify and investigate new technologies, and prototype solutions, to deliver an exceptional customer experience.

An ideal candidate for this role enjoys working on complex software problems, possesses analytical, design and problem-solving skills, and is experienced in building and operating large scale systems. Customer obsession, strong judgment and communication skills, long term technical vision, and continuous focus on engineering and operational excellence are essential for the success in this role.

Work/Life Balance
Our team puts a high value on work-life balance. Most days, our entire team is co-located in the office, but we're also flexible when people occasionally need to work from home. We generally keep core in-office hours from 10am to 4pm. About half of us come in earlier and the other half of us stay later.

Inclusive Team Culture
Our team has developed a reputation for attracting, developing, and retaining amazing talent from diverse backgrounds. We're looking for a new teammate who is enthusiastic, empathetic, curious, motivated, reliable, and able to work effectively with a diverse team of peers; someone who will help us amplify the positive & inclusive team culture we've been building.

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 we 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.

Our team is dedicated to supporting new team members. It has a broad mix of experience levels and Amazon tenures, and we're building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship. Our senior engineers truly enjoy mentoring more junior engineers and engineers from non-traditional backgrounds through one-on-one mentoring and thorough, but kind, code reviews.
