2 months agoBoston, MA


Do you want to join a team of talented software engineers who are helping to revolutionize mobility to the cloud for their customers? AWS is seeking an exceptional developer to work on the challenging problem of accelerating our customer's journey from on-premises computing to running their businesses on AWS.

As a senior developer in this office, you will design and build a service that will help large enterprise companies migrate their computing to AWS. Delivering a reliable and high-performance service at AWS scale requires engineers with extraordinary technical expertise and boundless creativity. At Amazon, we also expect engineers like you to interact with customers, to understand our business goals, and to innovate rapidly, delivering high-quality and ground-breaking functionality.

What does it take to thrive as a developer at AWS? You need to be creative, curious, responsible, and able to work with others to rapidly turn an idea into working code. You're excited about writing code, implementing big ideas, and helping to coach those around you to raise the team's bar for code quality. You want the opportunity to grow your technical and professional skills while helping AWS grow. You relish the opportunity to dig into complex operational issues and to help customers build the next generation of web applications. You're someone who knows how to work hard and deliver results but is also able to have fun while they are doing it.

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.

Work/Life Balance
Outside of quarantine, our team is based in the Seaport in Boston but we understand the need for flexibility when it comes to working locations and hours. We aim to keep core office hours from 10am to 4pm with individuals free to start earlier or finish later as they please. Working from home is always an option.

At AWS, we build and operate our services so this position involves periodic on-call responsibilities. No one enjoys being paged, so we do our best to build fault tolerant systems and to ensure that we fully root cause issues so that we aren't paged for the same issue twice.

Inclusive Team Culture
Our team is intentional about attracting, developing, and retaining talented individuals from diverse backgrounds. We are looking for a new teammate who is enthusiastic, empathetic, curious, motivated, reliable, and able to work effectively with a diverse group of peers.
