Are you passionate about the developer experience? Want to make an impact on how thousands of development teams build products? Do you have great ideas on how to build powerful, intuitive development tools? If so, we want to talk to you!

Our team is building a new component of the AWS Developer tools- CodeCommit. We know the problems we want to solve but there's still a lot work left to design and build the solution. The product will meet AWS standards on scalability, availability and security, integrate closely with other AWS services and be a delight to use.

On this team you will play a leading role in the definition, design and development of this new service. You will:
• Work with development teams inside and outside Amazon as your core customers.
• Identify and eliminate developer pain points in multiple languages and toolchains.
• Iterate, test new ideas, and shape the future vision for software development at Amazon.
• Learn, use and master core AWS and Amazon technologies
• Work closely with remarkable engineers and business leaders on hard problems.

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. AWS Platform is the glue that holds the AWS ecosystem together. 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.

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. We have innovative benefit offerings, and we 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.
