DESCRIPTION

AWS Elastic Beanstalk is dedicated to making the process of deploying and managing web applications and services into AWS as easy as possible. Elastic Beanstalk is uniquely positioned to serve as a vehicle for customers to quickly use the power of AWS cloud infrastructure while managing the complexity around running and maintaining applications in the cloud.

The Elastic Beanstalk team is looking for a passionate, experienced full stack engineer with a focus on front-end development. Creating the perfect user experience requires a blend of technical knowledge, customer obsession and agility. You should be somebody who is interested in how the various components (browsers, networks, protocols and web servers) work together and understand how they can be effectively used together to create great user experiences. You will work closely with product managers, engineers and customers to ensure we are delivering interfaces that make it easy to do complex tasks. If employing your skills at scale and working in a dynamic and delivery-focused environment interests you then this is the perfect role!

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.
This position involves on-call responsibilities, typically for one week every two months. We don't like getting paged in the middle of the night or on the weekend, so we work to ensure that our systems are fault tolerant. When we do get paged, we work together to resolve the root cause so that we don't get paged for the same issue twice.

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 and thorough, but kind, code reviews. 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.
