Software Development Engineer

Amazon Dev Center U.S., Inc.
 Seattle, WA


Amazon Web Services (AWS) is looking for talented software engineers to play a critical role in launching a brand new service from the ground up. AWS customers are pushing the envelope for their customers in new and exciting ways; they want to focus on their core business and not on gluing together various developer tools or building bespoke solutions to get their code to production. Developers want a smooth user experience that highlights things that require attention and allows them to focus on writing code, not managing development tools and scaffolding. At the same time, enterprises want their developers to use a toolchain that is secure and promotes safe best practices by default.

The AWS Code Suite services were built to address this need. AWS CodeCommit, CodePipeline, CodeBuild, and CodeDeploy allow customers to author, validate, and release software and infrastructure changes easily, quickly, and safely. But we aren’t content with the current products - we see a big opportunity to compliment the existing tools with a new offering that we believe will provide more seamless experiences between services and will make our customers more productive.

That’s where you come in. As an engineer on the AWS Developer Tools team, you will play a critical in the creation of a product that will be used (and loved!) by millions of engineers. You will join a strong team as we shape the future of continuous delivery. You will play a key role in all aspects of the software delivery process including requirements gathering, ideation, technical design, implementation, release, and operation. You will design distributed systems at an epic scale, all in service of delighting customers.

Sound like this is in your wheelhouse? Then please apply! We would be excited to have you on the team.
