Senior Software Development Engineer, Aws Envision Engineering

3+ months agoToronto, Canada


What do we do?
The Envision Engineering team helps customers solve their most interesting business challenges by rapidly developing innovative prototypes using world-class and open-source technologies. We've helped customers by using image recognition to find missing persons, Artificial Intelligence to optimize rideshares and Machine Learning to grade exam answers.

We are a team of problem-solvers and builders who work on customer problems that don't have cookie-cutter solutions. We often don't have the answers right away, and are expected to Dive Deep to figure out the best approach. The code we write provides immediate value for customers by showing how technology can solve their problems.

What's in it for you?
You will be part of an exceptional team of Product Managers and Engineers where collaboration is highly valued, where innovation is something that happens every day, where taking risks is encouraged, and every day is Day One. You will face unique challenges, learn from some of the brightest minds in the industry, and build deep expertise in the most sought after skills in the market. You will have the opportunity to be part of one of the fastest growing, customer obsessed, and innovative companies in the world.

You won't get bored working on the same codebase. Each project is greenfield and approximately six to eight weeks in length. These short innovation cycles will continually develop your engineering skills and you'll see results quickly.

You'll have access to a wealth of Amazon internal training, including instructor-led courses and talks from experts. This will give you the opportunity to become an expert, gaining valuable expertise in services used in Machine Learning, IoT, image recognition, chat bots, and big data. We will provide the environment and support to learn any new tools, libraries or frameworks.

What will you do?

You will:
• Feel a real sense of achievement from completing and delivering projects in less time than you thought possible.
• Get hands-on with a range of technologies and practice a range of disciplines: back-end, front-end, full-stack, DevOps, machine learning engineer, and data scientist. We are curious generalists who don't pigeon-hole ourselves as particular "flavours" of engineer and never say "that's not my job".
• Collaborate with customers through full engagements; you'll learn about their business challenges, rapidly and develop prototypes to solve them, showcase the functionality you've written in demos and finally see the difference you've made when customers deploy solutions into their production environments.
• Work with the latest services and open-source technologies to build your prototypes. You'll always be encouraged to pick the right tools for the job.
