Interested in building an entirely new AWS service from the ground up? Motivated by the opportunity to re-imagine the customer experience for one of the day's most fundamental business tools? AWS is building a new team intent on delighting both corporate IT and their internal customers, across virtually every business vertical.

The team is a part of the AWS End User Computing category, a market segment that is growing at an incredible pace, with rapid customer adoption. As a Software Development Engineer, you will have the unique opportunity to be a founding member of a new AWS service. We are inventing an entirely new service concept and you will have the opportunity to lead technical design, influence product direction, work across the stack from cloud-based services to web apps, and collaborate closely with both end customers and peer teams across Amazon.

We operate like a startup in a big company - our engineers work closely with product management and user experience designers to build best-in-class services and apps. Our engineers are owners who identify, define, and build solutions that delight millions of customers every day. We are building our organization based on smart people, diversity of perspective and experience, and looking for individuals with a "can-do" attitude who love to tackle hard problems.

This team is a good fit for you if:
• You are sensitive to customer needs and interested in having a firsthand impact on Amazon's global customer base
• You truly care about the business results of what you build, not just the elegance of the technology
• You like to solve interesting technology problems
• You enjoy collaborating in a diverse team environment
• You are a passionate learner and motivated to take on new challenges.
• You want to have fun; surround yourself with a highly talented pool of engineers that like to solve complex problems, but also enjoy work life balance.

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.
