AWS is excited to share that we're hiring for a team that is building a new AWS service from the ground up for the Media & Entertainment industry. Specifically, we are seeking a Senior Software Development Engineer to join our team. Do you want to transform an entire market segment? Do you like to work with artists and creative people with a rich diversity of backgrounds?
Our team puts a high value on work-life harmony. We are distributed across many locations: Seattle, Palo Alto, San Francisco, LA, Vancouver and Winnipeg. In general, you are welcome to work from the office or remotely. We try to keep core availability hours from 10am to 4pm and we have our fair share of early birds and night owls so there is almost always someone available to chat, help or answer questions.
This position involves on-call responsibilities, typically twice a year. 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 and that our alarms are well calibrated. Every week we review our operations as a team and audit our mechanisms to make it easier for our engineers and better for our customers. When we do get paged, we work together to resolve the root cause.
Mentorship & Career Growth
Developing our people is celebrated as part of our team culture. We are dedicated to supporting each other and you will get plenty of opportunities to share your unique knowledge and to mentor others. We believe that developing others is an integral part of developing yourself and we have a very diverse collection of backgrounds, levels of experience and Amazon tenure to support this. Our engineers enjoy growing others through one-on-one mentoring and constructive design and code reviews.
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 that we 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.
