3 days agoSunnyvale, CA


Do you want to advance the state-of-the-art for robot simulations and virtual worlds? AWS RoboMaker is a new platform for running robotics simulations at scale in the cloud, and we're looking for talented engineers to help us build innovative and powerful new features for simulating robots in dynamic 3D worlds. If you're passionate about building software that powers large-scale machine learning with Simulations, scenario testing for exciting new robot applications, let's talk!

In this role, you will deliver some of our most strategic technical projects, design new software systems at the cutting edge of robot simulation technology and have a significant bottom-line impact on our business and competitive position. In addition to delivering critical software, you will draw from a deep and broad technical expertise to mentor engineers and provide leadership on complex technical issues.

You will be designing, leading and building new features for robot simulation. You'll build features to customize the simulation world at runtime (example, introduce an obstacle in the path of the robot at runtime, customize the floor friction of simulation world), enable actions based on ground truth events (example - close the door when a robot enters a room), create a new high-level scenario-based testing system, and more. You will identify and investigate new technologies, and prototype solutions, to deliver an exceptional customer experience.

Our team is intentional about attracting, developing, and retaining amazing talent from diverse backgrounds. We're looking for a teammate who is enthusiastic, empathetic, curious, motivated, and will contribute positively to our inclusive team culture. We're committed to your growth and development. Our team has all experience levels and Amazon tenures, and your growth is supported by our principle engineers who truly enjoy mentoring. You will be working on complex projects that will challenge you and further develop you a well-rounded engineer.


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.
