With a focus on automation, we spend our time on things that matter to customers, that let them focus on their business, not the muck of managing accounts.

AWS has the most services and more features within those services, than any other cloud providerfrom infrastructure technologies like compute, storage, and databasesto emerging technologies, such as machine learning and artificial intelligence, data lakes and analytics, and Internet of Things. Whether its Identity features such as access management and sign on, cryptography, console, builder & developer tools, and even projects like automating all of our contractual billing systems, AWS Platform is always innovating with the customer in mind. The AWS Platform team sustains over 750 million transactions per second.

You are a talented, detail-oriented, and enthusiastic Software Development Engineer who is excited about big challenges. You will contribute your creative ideas and energy to improving the customer experience by leaps and bounds. Duties include research, design, and implementation, and being a key part of delivering new features and systems. The team is growing significantly, so there are opportunities for team leadership and mentoring junior engineers.

You will join a diverse, smart, and hardworking team. We're parents, musicians, and athletes who enjoy time outside of the office. We've worked hard to create a trusting, collaborative, diverse, and supportive atmosphere. We're looking for a positive, enthusiastic, driven, and personable engineer to continue this environment and lead this team. Come join us, and start your next challenge!

Our team is dedicated to supporting new members. We have a broad mix of experience levels and tenures, and we're building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship. Our senior members enjoy one-on-one mentoring and thorough, but kind, code reviews. We care about your career growth and strive to assign projects 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.
