7 days ago
Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale relational databases in the cloud. We are looking for a passionate software development engineer to help build a strategic machine learning-powered service that automatically detects database-related security threats, operational issues and performance bottlenecks. Our vision here is to offer key insights to RDS customers across different database domains; and help set the direction of the business and the industry.
This is a rare chance for you to be a part of a highly visible team building a service from the ground up that will deliver transformative solutions to customers and chart the course for other AWS services to follow.
Work/Life Balance
The Amazon RDS 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 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. Our senior members enjoy one-on-one mentoring and thorough, but kind, code reviews. We care about your career growth and strive to assign projects based on what will help each team member develop into a better-rounded engineer and enable them to take on more complex tasks, problems to solve in the future.
Inclusive Team Culture
Here at AWS, we embrace our differences. We are intentional about attracting, developing and retaining amazing talent from diverse backgrounds. Yes, we do get to build a really cool service, but we also ensure an inclusive and welcoming culture is being followed every day. We are looking for a new teammate who is enthusiastic, empathetic, curious, motivated, reliable and able to work effectively with diverse team of peers; someone who will help us amplify positive and inclusive team culture further.
