Are you passionate about driving innovation? Do you want to be a part of an innovative, agile development team to deliver software that will help customers solve tough problems? If you have a passion to help create global impact at scale, join the AWS Public Sector team! We are a team of problem-solvers and builders who work on customer problems that don't have cookie-cutter solutions. We often don't have the answers right away, and are expected to Dive Deep to figure out the best approach.

AWS is looking for world-class software development engineers to build software for healthcare and education customers in the public sector. You will work with product managers, solutions architects, customers, and your team to deliver high-quality, high-impact software that leverages AWS to help these customers meet their mission goals.

As a software development engineer, you must design, develop, test, and deploy well-architected software. You must be able to dive deep into the details on operations and engineering. Everyone is a leader at AWS. You will have a lot of ownership and autonomy. You will have to be obsessed with delivering the most customer-centric experience on the planet. We need leaders that are able to look at problems in new ways and invent simple solutions to complex problems.

You'll have access to a wealth of Amazon internal training, including instructor-led courses and talks from experts. This will give you the opportunity to become an AWS expert, gaining valuable expertise in AWS services including those used for machine learning, IoT, and big data. We provide the environment and support to learn new tools, libraries and frameworks.

Work/Life Balance

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 lifeboth in and outside of work.

Mentorship & Career Growth

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.
