Job summary

At Amazon, we believe that every day is “Day One.“ A day for the first step or to meet a new challenge, and today could be the day that you become part of a bigger idea. Come join a group of creative people that help redefine the company daily. Working for Amazon is a new excitement every day.

In AWS Enterprise Engineering, we build the software, services, and infrastructure that enable Amazon teams across the world to do their work on a daily basis. We represent the intersection of AWS technology and the need for traditional IT solutions at Amazon’s scale. We’re an AWS-focused, builder-centric organization, focused on using AWS technology to reshape and reinvent the traditional IT experience. We succeed when we make Amazonians around the world more effective in their work and more efficient in how they get it done.

You and your team will work with internal Amazon service owners and AWS product teams to develop new services and solutions that give enterprise IT customers more choice and self-service platforms that we offer our global workforce. You will influence AWS product roadmaps and build new solutions as needed to raise the bar for security, automation, and operational excellence for Amazon’s corporate infrastructure.

In this role, you will build the tools and services that move our Windows-based systems into the infrastructure-as-code age, enable self-healing for our systems, and provide capabilities that enable other Amazon service owners to do the same. You will use AWS products and DevOps patterns to build the next generation of Windows-based management tools.

We are looking for a motivated builder to inspire our teams and deliver results to our customers. This is a hands-on position where your daily activities will range from strategic planning to new system development to supporting the customers that depend on your services. You will deliver consistent, well-defined results in an agile systems development workflow. To succeed in this role, you will deliver on-time results that delight your customers while inspiring your team to think big about their work. If this sounds like a fit, we would love to speak with you.
