The Continuous Delivery team at AWS is looking for a Front End Engineer to help us make Continuous Delivery software that works at massive scale. The Continuous Delivery team in AWS owns and operates the systems that help development teams model, visualize, and automate their release processes.

You have an understanding of your customers (Amazon developers) and the challenges they face. You work relentlessly to delight them.
You take responsibility for your code and the systems the team maintains.
You solve complex problems, applying appropriate technologies and best practices.
You work with your team to invent, design, and build software that is stable and highly performant.
You address root causes to ensure the operational excellence of our services.
You write code that an FEE/SDE unfamiliar with the system can understand.
You help your team evolve by actively participating in the code review process, design discussions, team planning, and ticket/metric/operational reviews.
You foster a constructive dialogue and seek resolutions in a professional way.
