We are the Developer Tools Team at Amazon. We love developers because we are developers. We work day in and day out to make their lives, and ours, better. We build and refine tools and services for their most essential tasks. Browsing, searching, reviewing, code analysis--at Amazon scale. We do it all, and we do it first. There's nothing like submitting a code review that improves the code review experience! We own everything backend to frontend. We innovate with speed and purpose.
On a typical day, you may:

• Discuss and design a feature requested by customers
• Implement code and tests for a service
• Ensure operational readiness of a service
• Resolve impending issues before customers notice them
• Engage with customers to help them understand and use a feature
• Craft a plan to evolve or deprecate a service
• Collaborate with other Developer Tools teams to provide a smooth developer experience
