Have you ever wanted to work on a state-of-the-art machine learning and AI ecosystem? Do you have the passion to tackle hard problems in making an IDE for machine learning professionals and data scientists? As an engineer on the Amazon SageMaker Studio Notebooks team, you'll own the Notebook authoring and data scientist IDE experience for AWS ML.

Our mission is to provide a highly scalable, fully integrated and collaborative data science workbench where any data scientist, developer, or student can develop ML solutions in the cloud.

Engineers on this team get to:
• Learn from the best - you'll be lead technical discussions alongside other engineers with deep technical knowledge, principal engineers and data scientists.
• Support online ML education providers (Coursera,, Udacity, etc.) to develop the next generation of ML engineers.
• Be the voice of the customer to develop open-source software and build interesting customer examples.
• Develop operational rigor for a fast-growing AWS service.
• Collaborate with senior and principal engineers in design, implement and maintain a scalable tier 1 AWS service.

Key responsibilities:
• Be part of "two pizza" scrum team.
• Work closely with senior and principal engineers to architect and develop robust technical designs.
• Collaborate with other SageMaker engineers for features that cut across SageMaker.
• Engage with customers and other AWS partners.
• Continually improve the product and strive for operational excellence.
• Help with hiring.

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.

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.
