Software Development Engineer - Kinesis Video Streams
- Sosnowiec, Poland
Come build the future with us as we change the way the world build video applications for never before seen scale!
Amazon Kinesis Video Streams (KVS) makes it easy to securely stream video from connected devices to AWS for playback, analytics, machine learning (ML), and other processing. KVS provides a fully managed service for businesses to ingest vast amounts of data from millions of cameras. KVS SDKs and service APIs allow easy access to the video data and enables customers to quickly build computer vision and ML applications through integration with Amazon Rekognition Video, Amazon SageMaker and frameworks such as Apache MxNet, TensorFlow, and OpenCV.
In the KVS team you will get to develop key components supporting secure video ingestion, playback, indexing, and consumption of videos at vast scale. This is a C/C++/Java software development position focusing on open-source development of client-side software.
KVS values work-life balance. Most days, our entire team is co-located in the Seattle office, but we're also flexible when people occasionally need to work from home. We generally keep core in-office hours from 10am to 4pm. About half of us come in earlier and the other half of us stay later.
This position involves modest on-call responsibilities, typically for one week every two months. On-calls in this team support our open source developer community and customers' software integration efforts. This position is with a software development team in KVS that rarely get paged in the night time or on weekends. 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. We have a wide range of experience levels in the team and we're building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentoring. Our senior engineers are truly supportive of more junior engineers, and committed to help them grow through coaching and thorough, but kind, code reviews.
We care about your career growth. We try to assign projects and tasks 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.
Inclusive Team Culture
Our team is intentional about attracting, developing, and retaining amazing talent from diverse backgrounds. Yes we do get to build a really cool service, but we also think a big reason for that is the inclusive and welcoming culture we try to cultivate every day.
We're looking for a new teammate who is enthusiastic, empathetic, curious, motivated, reliable, and able to work effectively with a diverse team of peers; someone who will help us amplify the positive & inclusive team culture we've been building.
