Customers coming to AWS often need to make tradeoffs and decisions about the services and features optimal for their situation. The Well Architected Guidance Engine leads customers through scenario-based questions to recommend architecture and technology choices that best meets their needs. The team is hiring a Senior Software Development Engineer. You will be part of a cross-functional team tackling this problem and your peers include senior Solutions Architects who have years of experience building complex, AWS-based solutions for enterprises.

The ideal candidate is an experienced and independent software development engineer, who will be able to balance technical leadership with strong business judgment to make the right decisions about technology and methodologies choices. As a Software Development Engineer at Amazon, your code is held to a high-standard and you are expected to stay up-to-date on the latest technologies. You will be working in AWS serverless technologies to deliver services that meet a high operational excellence bar.

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.

Mentorship & Career Growth
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.
