Frontend Software Engineer II, SageMaker Studio

6 days agoSeattle, WA


Want to be part of a mission to make Machine Learning accessible to everyone?

Amazon SageMaker is a fully-managed Machine platform that makes it easy to build models, manage them, and integrate them with custom applications for batch or online predictions. SageMaker Studio is the first fully integrated development environment (IDE) for machine learning. Users can build, train, tune, debug, deploy and monitor ML models - all in a single, unified web-based interface that boosts developer productivity. SageMaker Studio takes away the "heavy-lifting" normally associated with large-scale Machine implementations so that developers and scientists can focus on the truly creative work of modeling and solving the business problem at hand.

As a member of our team, you will own the complete Studio experience and be responsible for building critical user facing features for various customer personas (Data Scientists, Data Engineers, Analysts etc). You'll also be working on the interfaces and architectures that enable our partner teams within SageMaker to quickly and easily develop customer-facing experiences. You will have significant influence on our overall strategy by helping define the features, driving the system front end architecture, and spearheading best practices within and across several other teams.

This role requires deep technical expertise, excellent leadership skills, and ability to hit the ground running. You will be responsible for solving algorithmically complex problems and build features that can scale to millions of requests and deployed globally delivering an exceptional customer experience. To be successful in this role, you will need to have an established background in developing complex front end products, a strong technical ability, solid communication skills, and a motivation to achieve results in a fast-paced environment. As innovators we embrace new technology, you will be empowered to choose the right highly scalable and available technology to solve complex problems.

Within the role, you should expect to:

  • Work closely with senior engineers, UX designers, and product managers to design and develop friendly UI experiences.
  • Improve and evolve the technical architecture, working closely with engineers and architects both within and outside your team.
  • Lead the operational and engineering excellence efforts for the the team.
  • Mentor and develop the engineers.
  • Collaborate with other SageMaker engineers and managers for features that cut across the organization.
  • Engage with customers and other AWS partners.
  • Engage with developers contributing to Open Source JupyterLab Project
  • Help with hiring.
You'll be well supported with by a group with deep technical chops, including multiple senior and principal engineers.
