Software Development Engineer - EC2

2 days agoHerndon, VA

DESCRIPTION

The EC2 Networking team is looking for a Software Development Engineer to join our 6 person team.
We deliver some of the core EC2 network virtualization systems. Our services range from the ones responsible for metering all network usage across AWS (billions of records per hour) to low-level code delivering encrypted VPN connections, to large-scale web services allowing customers to reconfigure networks at their whim.
In our team, you will have a direct impact on our core software supporting massive public AWS services, EC2 and VPC. You will own and implement specific components, build highly available, secure, scalable, distributed and event-driven systems, and help define the system architecture. On any given day, we use Java, JavaScript, Scala, Ruby and Python as well as other public AWS services and a host of Amazon-internal tools. We don't expect you to be an expert in, or necessarily even be familiar with, all of the technologies listed above, but we do expect you to be excited to learn about them!
This is a full-stack development position, leaning towards back-end work.

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, typically for two weeks every two months. 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 and we're building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship. We care about your career growth. We follow a DevOps model and we try and assign projects and tasks based on what will help each team member develop into a better rounded engineer that will enable them to take on more complex tasks in the future. As an Amazonian, you'll enjoy interacting with some of the most talented engineers in our industry through breakfast talks and demos, internal communities and extensive training material that span all aspects of our business. Engineers in our teams have a strong sense of ownership and drive to innovate and have resounding impact in how we develop and deliver software at such a large scale.
Inclusive Team Culture
Inclusive Team Culture 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. We have innovative benefit offerings, and host annual and ongoing learning experiences, including our Conversations on Race and Ethnicity (CORE) and AmazeCon (gender diversity) conferences. Amazon's culture of inclusion is reinforced within our 14 Leadership Principles, which remind team members to seek diverse perspectives, learn and be curious, and earn trust. Work/Life Balance Our team puts a high value on work-life balance. It isn't about how many hours you spend at home or at work; it's about the flow you establish that brings energy to both parts of your life. We believe striking the right balance between your personal and professional life is critical to life-long happiness and fulfillment. We offer flexibility in working hours and encourage you to find your own balance between your work and personal lives. 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. Our senior members enjoy one-on-one mentoring. 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.
