Software Development Engineer

3+ months agoSeattle, WA


Come work for Amazon Web Services (AWS) Outposts; a highly recognized hybrid cloud offering from AWS. AWS Outposts is an on-premises version of AWS public cloud.

Our team is responsible for managing the network route that enables communication between Outpost and its associated AWS Region, performing several transformations and validations on the packets both to and from the AWS Region, setting up and managing network configuration, pushing the network configurations to other Outpost services, packet inspections, and the logical interconnect virtual router that enables communication between Outpost and customer on-premise network.

We are a start-up like team within a big enterprise. This allows us to take risk and experiment, allow team members to flex their technical muscles and grow in their respective careers, and an unique opportunity to be part of the product's growth story. Are you interested in building and managing systems in scale, interested in software defined networking, low-level programming, and building high performant applications with limited resources? If so, come join us as a Software Development Engineer.

We aim to hire engineers who will thrive in a fast-paced, collaborative and open environment, who aren't afraid to dive-deep to solve seemingly impossible challenges, who want to build rock solid 24x7 never-fail, highly-secure, software at world-class scale and who obsess over customers.

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 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. 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.
