Senior Software Development Engineer, Eks

3+ months agoSeattle, WA


At Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS), we are building core services that allow our customers to create and use Kubernetes at scale. In our pursuit to make AWS the best place to run containers securely and reliably, we've introduced EKS Add-ons.

The Amazon EKS Add-ons team owns services that allow the customer to reliably and conveniently deploy, manage, and upgrade operational software (add-ons) on EKS. The charter for the team is to simplify the overall customer experience related to bootstrapping and maintaining a functional EKS cluster. The team operates as a catalyst to help customers easily achieve meaningful use of EKS while remaining focused on their core business problems and solutions.

EKS Add-ons provide cutting edge, curated extensions for networking, observability, storage, and AWS integrations for EKS. As a Senior Software Engineer for EKS Add-ons, you will play a critical role in how we deliver on our mission. Being part of the team, you will have a multiplying effect in enabling our customers to reliably adopt add-ons. With EKS Add-ons, our customers are able to focus on their core business while taking full advantage of the rich Kubernetes ecosystem in an efficient and productive way.

This is an opportunity to operate and engineer systems at scale, provide technical leadership and influence strategies to delight our customers. You will be solving challenging technical problems, often ones not solved before, alongside peers with remarkable expertise. A key part of your role will be collaborating with and influencing other AWS service teams to provide integrations for Kubernetes customers.

If you are excited to work in a dynamic and collaborative environment to deliver results, we would love to hear from you!

About Us
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 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.
Work/Life Balance
Our team puts a high value on work-life harmony. We believe striking a balance between your personal and professional roles is critical to life-long happiness and fulfillment. We offer competitive benefits and support to help employees find their optimal work/life balance.

This position involves on-call responsibilities, typically for one week every two months. We don't like getting paged in the middle of the night or on the weekend, so we work to ensure that our systems are fault tolerant. When we do get paged, we work together to resolve the root cause so that we don't get paged for the same issue twice.
Mentorship & Career Growth
Our team is dedicated to supporting new members. We have a broad mix of experience levels and tenures, and we're building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship. Our senior members enjoy one-on-one mentoring and thorough, but kind, code reviews. We care about your career growth and strive to assign projects 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.
