About the job
The Strategic Security, Design and Operations Tools Development team builds and maintains the tools and services necessary to support International Amazon Dedicated Cloud teams and Global Expansion Intelligence teams.
We are looking for a Software Development Engineer who is excited about designing and building solutions to solve challenging problems to support critical customer requirements and develop expansion intelligence. In Amazon our challenges are broad and deep — we build flexible, secure, scalable, high-performance and robust tools and services. You will help implement, operate, and improve current services as well as build new features to improve the customer experience and make it easier/faster/cheaper for the customer to get what they need.
In Amazon, we obsess over our customers, and their trust is our first priority. Trust is earned by building a highly respected security service to tackle new challenges at a large scale. In this role, you will deliver high quality, scalable solutions to the challenges posed by supporting International ADCs and global Amazon expansion initiatives. You will collaborate with product owners and customers to deliver the best features, using resources and technologies efficiently. You will also help to engage other teams to onboard their services for data ingestion into the platform, aide in the tooling for analysis of the data, as well as transforming the data when needed to make it useful. You are detail driven and have excellent problem solving abilities. The successful candidate is passionate about delivering extensible, on-time solutions and has experience working within a high-performance team.
This position involves on-call responsibilities. We don’t like getting paged in the middle of the night or on the weekend, so we work to ensure that our systems are fault tolerant. When we do get paged, we work together to resolve the root cause so that we don’t get paged for the same issue twice.
About The Team
Here at Amazon, 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.
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.
