Millions of customers, from individual developers to large enterprises, interact with AWS by using the AWS Management Console. The Management Console is their introduction to AWS, and for many, their primary interface to accomplish a wide variety of tasks. It is our job to maintain and improve this experience, constantly innovating with rapid design and experimentation leveraging well-established mechanisms for gathering and understanding user behavior and feedback.

As an front-end engineer on the team, you will share responsibility for designing, implementing, and enhancing our widget creation framework - empowering AWS console developers to deliver these targeted experiences rapidly and efficiently. If you are passionate about building Web experiences using AWS and open source technologies to help drive the future of the AWS customer experience, we'd love to hear from you!
