Senior Software Development Engineer
- Boston, MA
Senior Software Development Engineer: Elastic Block Store Data Services (AWS)
Come and build the future with us as we change the way customers move and transform their EBS data at never before seen scale.
EBS customers frequently need to move or transform their underlying data whether its accelerating volume creation from snapshots using Fast Snapshot Restore, increasing their database storage or changing their volume type through Elastic volumes, or encrypting their volumes using AWS managed keys. Our team creates solutions that enable and simplify EBS customer workflows.
Building a High-Performing & 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.
EBS Data Services values work-life balance. Most days, our entire team is co-located in the Boston 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. Some of the team come in earlier and the rest of us stay later. We are builder-operators of our services at AWS and have a modest on-call rotation where you'll participate once every 2 months.
Energizing and Interesting Technical Problems

It's humbling and energizing to provide data movement solutions to customers at AWS scale.
