Software Development Engineer II
- Seattle, WA
Come join us to renovate the way to visualize the EC2 fleet state! Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) is a fast-growing business within Amazon that provides secure, resizable compute capacity in the cloud. The EC2 Fleet Insights team provides visibility to the internal EC2 state through UI solutions and query APIs. Our services are a one-stop-shop for Amazon teams who manage and control EC2.
We are looking for software development engineers who are passionate about creating & improving the services that collect, aggregate and render the real-time fleet state data for our customers. On any given day, we use Java, Ruby on Rails, Python, SQL, Lambda, DynamoDB, and CloudFormation, 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!
In this role you'll you define, implement and upgrade the data services interacting with the EC2 data distribution platform and also shape the future of the new data retrieval solution including both front and back ends running at the massive scale level. You will apply your creative and critical problem solving skills to handle the customer requests and create simple & elegant solutions to solve their challenges.
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.
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.
This position involves on-call responsibilities, typically for one week 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 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.
