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

DESCRIPTION

Job summary
We are building hybrid-edge cloud services for the most demanding industries with some of the most challenging use cases that are deployed world-wide. Are you interested in designing and building the next generation Snow device shipping and fulfillment services that are highly resilience, scalable and tolerant to hardware failures (reliable) ? If so, come join us as a Software Development Engineer!

AWS Snow Family are highly secure, petabyte-scale data transport and edge computing products that are used to collect, process, and move large amounts of data to AWS from on-premises and remote locations.

Processing and moving enterprise size data at remote locations and workflows to the cloud quickly, securely, and cost-effectively is a huge challenge for many customers and we are eagerly looking for innovative leaders to embark on the journey to build the best hybrid-edge solutions that scale without limits and deliver bar-raising customer experience in all environments and under all conditions. We need your passion, innovative ideas, and creativity to help take the service to new heights. This is an opportunity to shape the future of hybrid-edge cloud computing. Our mission is to transform the way the world builds their hybrid and edge cloud computing solutions.

As an entry level developer on the team, you will solve straightforward problems, seeking input and guidance from team members and contribute to all aspects of the software development life-cycle. You will design and develop secure, reliable, scalable, and high-performance on-device software that helps expand the Snow edge compute and data transfer business. You will also contribute to cloud-based software to prepare devices for use. You measure and identify areas of improvement in our frameworks, tools, processes and strive to make them better. You will own the new features from inception through development and release.

We are constantly evaluating our success metrics and are obsessed with identifying new ways to measure our solution’s effectiveness and how to improve them.

Work/Life Balance – Our team puts a high value on work-life balance.

On-Call Responsibility – This position involves on-call responsibilities, typically for one week in every eight. We don’t like getting paged in the middle of the night or on the weekend, so we work to ensure that our products are exceeding customer expectations. When we do get paged, we work together to resolve the issue and ensure that root cause is addressed systemically.

Mentorship and 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 SDEs and other Snow members truly enjoy mentoring and on-boarding new SDE members through one-on-one mentoring and thorough, but kind, doc 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 SDE and enable them to take on more complex features and services in the future.

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.

Come join a smart, innovative team that’s obsessed with serving its customers and is having fun doing so in a start-up-like environment!
