Software Development Engineer Co-op - Fall 2019 (Canada)

Reference ID: 803585

Share job:

Amazon Student Programs is looking for Software Development Engineering interns to join our development teams located in Amazon offices across Canada.

Note: By applying to this position, your application will be considered for locations we hire for in Vancouver, CA.

We are looking for Amazon interns to join us for Fall 2019! Amazon interns have the opportunity to work alongside the industry's brightest engineers who innovate everyday on behalf of our customers. Our interns and co-ops write real software and partner with a select group of experienced software development engineers, who both help and challenge them as they work on projects that matter to our customers.

As an intern, you will be matched to a manager and a mentor and given the opportunity to have direct impact on the evolution of Amazon's technologies as well as lead mission critical projects early in your career. Your design, code, and raw smarts will contribute to solving some of the most complex technical challenges in the areas of distributed systems, data mining, automation, optimization, scalability, and security- just to name a few.

In addition to an impactful project, you will have the opportunity to engage with Amazonians in both personal and professional development, expand your network, and take part in fun activities throughout the summer. No matter the location of your internship, we give you the tools to own your summer and learn in a real world setting. Many of our technologies overlap-you would be hard pressed to find a team that is not using Amazon Web Services (AWS), touching the catalogue, or iterating services to better personalize for customers.

Below is a small snapshot of potential work experience you may gain during your internship at Amazon:

• Collaborate with experienced cross-disciplinary Amazonians to conceive, design, and bring to market innovative devices and services
• Design and build innovative technologies in a large distributed computing environment and help lead fundamental changes in the industry
• Create solutions to run predictions on distributed systems with exposure to cutting edge technologies at incredible scale and speed
• Build distributed storage, index, and query systems that are scalable, fault-tolerant, low cost, and easy to manage and use

Amazon internships are full-time (40 hours/week) for 12-16 consecutive weeks with start dates between September 2019 through December 2019. Applicants should have at a minimum one quarter/semester remaining after their internship concludes.

Amazon is a place where builders build. Will you build with us?
