Job summary
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 owning the user experience and user interface elements 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
Here at AWS, we embrace our differences. We are committed to furthering our culture of inclusion. We have ten employee-led affinity groups, reaching 40,000 employees in over 190 chapters globally. We have innovative benefit offerings, and we host annual and ongoing learning experiences, including our Conversations on Race and Ethnicity (CORE) and AmazeCon (gender diversity) conferences. Amazon's culture of inclusion is reinforced within our 14 Leadership Principles, which remind team members to seek diverse perspectives, learn and be curious, and earn trust.

Mentorship & Career Growth
Our team is dedicated to supporting new team members. Our team has a broad mix of experience levels and Amazon tenures, and we're building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship. Our senior engineers truly enjoy mentoring more junior engineers and engineers from non-traditional backgrounds through one-on-one mentoring 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.

Work Life Balance
Our team puts a high value on work-life harmony. 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.
