3+ months agoSeattle, WA

DESCRIPTION

AWS EC2 core platform team is looking for a software development engineer like you to work on the very heart of EC2. Our team has a vision of consolidating best practices in one place. We are changing the way EC2 build services and we would love for you to learn, contribute and have resounding impact.

As a member of the EC2 team, your responsibilities would include:
• Working with team members to manage the day-to-day development activities, participate in designs, design review, code review, and implementation.
• Engaging and working with customers and dependencies to ensure quality delivery.
• Mentoring other engineers.
• Maintaining current technical knowledge to support rapidly changing technology, aspiring to look out for new technologies and work with the team in bringing in new technologies.

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.

Inclusive Team Culture

Our team is intentional about attracting, developing, and retaining amazing talent from diverse backgrounds. Yes we do get to build a really cool service, but we also think a big reason for that is the inclusive and welcoming culture we try to cultivate every day. We're looking for a new teammate who is enthusiastic, empathetic, curious, motivated, reliable, and able to work effectively with a diverse team of peers. Someone who will help us amplify the positive and inclusive team culture we've been building.

On-Call Responsibility

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.

Our team puts a high value on work-life balance. It isn't about how many hours you spend at home or at work; it's about the flow you establish that brings energy to both parts of your life. We believe striking the right balance between your personal and professional life is critical to life-long happiness and fulfillment. We offer flexibility in working hours and encourage you to find your own balance between your work and personal lives.

In joining our team, you'll enjoy a competitive salary, great benefits, a creative and comfortable work environment, and the exciting opportunity to be part of a fast-paced and growing technology company.
