Senior Simulation Engineer, AWS Robotics

2 months agoSunnyvale, CA


Are you interested in making history, defining and building innovative products and services for the robotics industry?
AWS RoboMaker is a service that makes it easy for developers to build, test, and deploy intelligent robotics applications at scale. The service provides robotics software framework, development, simulation, and fleet management capabilities as an integrated platform. We are looking for a passionate Senior Simulation Engineer to guide the development of new simulation software and features.

In this role, you'll be designing, building, and supporting new features to empower robotics developers through cloud-based simulation. You will focus your skills in service-oriented architectures, building horizontally-scalable systems, and help build new publicly-facing AWS features and services. You will design and build new features, identify and investigate new technologies, and prototype solutions, to deliver an exceptional customer experience.

Our team is dedicated to supporting new team members. Our team 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. We care about your career growth. We try to assign projects and tasks 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.

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
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.
