Software Development Engineer


We are a motley group of engineers and scientists within AWS and we are here to create history by taking Artificial Intelligence to the next level solutions for our customers. We dream of a world where using customers can scale up their business by using Artificial Intelligence by simple button clicks, rather than writing thousands of lines of code for months.

  • Break down complex design problems into simple independent pieces, and review your designs with senior engineers.
  • Be very hands-on; work with others on the engineering team to manage the day-to-day development activities, participate in designs, design review, code review, and implementation.
  • Delivery quality features on-time and on-budget and execution against project plans and delivery commitments.
