Software Development Engineer, AWS Immune


Our mission: To be Earth's most customer-centric company.


Job summary
Amazon Web Service’s Immune team is developing systems for recognizing and correcting the conditions that would cause a system to fail before the failure occurs. We’re using machine learning, data analytics, and predictive algorithms to alert service owners and engineers to potential problems in time to take corrective action.

AWS has a track record of constantly growing the variety of services we make available and the geographies where we make them available and adding other capabilities that improve performance, flexibility, and ease of use. Delivering on this growth, with availability, resiliency, and reliability, requires solving distributed systems and data science problems at the forefront of computer science. The benefit of this work is to enable faster innovation across the rest of the software industry.

We seek a software developer who has demonstrated expertise in building large-scale distributed systems, preferably leveraging Amazon services. Exposure to machine learning, isometric algorithms, and predictive analytics is a plus.

The role provides a unique opportunity to build large-scale systems working across the entire AWS platform. You will draw upon exemplary technical architecture, deployment and management skills, critical thinking, problem-solving skills, and a passion for building stable, resilient, reliable systems at a massive scale. You should be open to new challenges, extremely comfortable working in an ambiguous problem space, innovative, creative, self-directed, and a great team player. You will drive the business, continuously process improvements, and collaborate effectively with cross-functional business and software development teams to solve problems, implement new solutions, and drive new usage cases. You will interact with a broad cross-section of the Amazon organization, spanning various technologies and engaging with external vendors and internal teams.

Responsibilities include:
• Execute in a multi-OS environment.
• Collaborate with engineering teams to drive the product roadmaps.
• Address bottlenecks, provide customer input, anticipate and make tradeoffs and balance the business needs versus technical constraints.
• Partner with multiple teams across multiple locations with varying priorities to ensure timely delivery of the solution.

  • Be comfortable in an environment where the problem to solve is not always well-understood.

Key job responsibilities
An SDE1 on this team will work under the direction of a Sr. Engineer and Software Development Manager to add features to existing or new products which collect data, analyze data, predict problems, or recommend mitigations.

A day in the life
Our organization works primarily remotely. We have daily syncs through video conferences, twice-monthly in-person planning sessions, daily informal round-tables, and occasional team social meet-ups in person.

About the team
The AWS immune team is a close-knit group of problem solvers. We voraciously analyze data to understand what can cause software systems to fail, and experiment collaboratively to correct those failures. We pride ourselves on working together and succeeding as a team.

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 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 16 Leadership Principles, which remind team members to seek diverse perspectives, learn and be curious, and earn trust.

Work/Life Balance
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.

Mentorship & Career Growth
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. We care about your career growth and strive to assign projects based on what will help each team member develop into a better-rounded professional and enable them to take on more complex tasks in the future.
