The AWS Well-Architected Tool team is hiring Software Developers!!

Imagine if you could help shape the future of cloud architecture, and make it increasingly easier and better for customers looking to build in the cloud. AWS Well-Architected aims to help our customers develop technical expertise in AWS services, learn how to architect their cloud applications, identify and remediate potential risks, and provide a great experience for customers and partners.

AWS continues to be one of Amazon's fastest growing businesses. More than a million active customers, from Airbnb to SAP, use AWS Cloud solutions to deliver flexibility, scalability, and reliability. As a Software Development Engineer at Amazon, your code is held to a high-standard and you are expected to stay up-to-date on the latest technologies.

In this role, you will be responsible for co-owning aspects of the Well-Architected tool and building/maintaining features from the ground up, relating to how we provide customers with actionable feedback for improving their cloud architectures. This involves designing new features, continually improving existing ones, and writing highly scalable and reliable code to do so. Operational excellence is a high priority for us, so evangelizing technical improvements and bugfixes along with new features helps us continue to evolve the product easily over time. You will be joining a relatively new team with high potential for growth. This is also a pivotal time for the tool with great upward potential for improving customer usage of cloud technologies and building some really cool, meaningful features for our customers.

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.

Work/Life Harmony
We recognize the importance of a good work-life harmony. Most days (pre-COVID), our entire team is co-located in the New York City office. Schedules and work-from-home options are flexible depending on the situation and role. Most engineers generally keep normal business hours, although some of us may come in earlier or stay later, depending on the day.

Mentorship & Career Growth

Our team is dedicated to supporting new team members. We have a broad mix of experience levels and Amazon tenures, and we're building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship. As an engineer in Amazon, you would be one of the people responsible for raising the bar on how we develop complex, scalable, reliable code for our team. Managers have frequent 1:1s with their engineers, and career conversations where we seek to understand people's career motivations and provide honest, respectful feedback to facilitate them achieving their goals.
