Software Development Engineer - Amazon Web Services Ides - Berlin

3+ months agoBerlin, Germany


The Amazon Web Services (AWS) IDE team provides developers with different tools and services that make it easy to develop modern cloud applications. We provide the IDE Toolkits for Eclipse, IntelliJ, Visual Studio, and Visual Studio Code. With AWS Cloud9, we also provide our customers with a Web-based IDE. Our goal is enable professional developers to create applications targeting the Cloud, e.g. Server-less or containers. We help them author, debug, test, and ultimately deploy code on AWS.

We are looking for a software development engineer who is passionate about building services and tools for developers. You will be part of a team building a new AWS service to enhance the developer experience in Cloud. The team works in close collaboration with other AWS services such as AWS Cloud9, AWS Fargate, and AWS ECS. If you are exited about the thought of working in cloud computing and building future AWS services, then we'd love to talk to you.

Work/Life Harmony
Our team puts a high value on work-life balance. Due to Covid-19 situation, out team currently works from home. We generally keep core working hours from 10am to 4pm. About half of us starts the day earlier and the other half of us stay later.

On-Call Responsibility
This position involves on-call responsibilities. 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 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 & inclusive team culture we've been building.
