AWS Migration Services - Senior Software Development Engineer

Amazon Dev Center U.S., Inc.
 Boston, MA


More and more enterprise companies are moving to the cloud so they can focus on business instead of technical debt. It's a critical time for cloud providers, and Amazon Web Services is investing in making sure we continue to offer the world's best customer experience for these complex migrations.

If the idea of accelerating a historic shift in technology excites you, apply to join us in the AWS Migration Services group. We are expanding by adding a new team to build a brand new service, and looking for talented engineers obsessed with customer experience and operational excellence.

As a Software Development Engineer on our team, you will design, build, and operate AWS services that will help large enterprise companies move their computing into AWS. You will become an expert in migrations, which are complex problems involving hundreds or thousands of computer systems that must be identified, organized, and migrated or modernized in a way that meets each customer's unique needs.

What does a successful Software Development Engineer at AWS look like?

You provide effective communication of your ideas within and across teams to create the right outcomes for your team and customers. The quality and efficiency of your code, design, and implementation set a great example of best practices for engineers.

Work/Life Balance

We understand that sometimes you need to work from home. Outside of quarantine, our team is co-located in the Boston office and we work from home as needed for a doctor’s appointments, to take our kids to school, pick them up, and do the things that can’t be done from the office.

Mentorship & Career Growth

We are 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. You'll have an opportunity to learn from people with and without engineering backgrounds through one-on-one mentoring and thorough and helpful code reviews.

We care about your career growth. You will work on projects and tasks that will develop your skills and enable you to take on increasingly complex tasks.
