Software Development Engineer - AWS - Fully Virtual
- Seattle, WA
The AWS Professional Services Customer Engineering (CE) team force-multiplies our largest enterprise customers by developing and delivering production-ready custom software and infrastructure.
We are looking for customer and automation obsessed Software Engineers to join us develop new, challenging cloud-native software and infrastructure that our customers will integrate into their own offerings as well as help convey Amazon development practices to our customers.
The ideal candidate loves to learn and invent. As members of AWS Professional Services we are not stewards of a single service, but of the entire AWS platform and keeping abreast of the ever-widening stream of platform improvements and new service. The candidate should come prepared with an understanding of OO software design and implementation experience, strong knowledge of web protocols, and an in-depth knowledge of Linux/Unix tools and architecture, preferably in Java, Python and/or Node, but also be willing to learn and be curious as necessary. Experience with web-based applications and/or web services-based applications, especially at massive scale and in a DevOps environment, are very applicable and helpful.
Our team also puts a high value on work-life balance. Striking a healthy balance between your personal and professional life is crucial to your happiness and success here, which is why we aren't focused on how many hours you spend at work or online. Instead, we're happy to offer a flexible schedule so you can have a more productive and well-balanced life-both in and outside of work.

We have a formal mentor search application that lets you find a mentor that works best for you based on location, job family, job level etc. Your manager can also help you find a mentor or two, because two is better than one. In addition to formal mentors, we work and train together so that we are always learning from one another, and we celebrate and support the career progression of our team members.
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.
