You are an experienced, high-caliber developer who gets excited by cloud computing and fascinated by solving infinite scale problems in distributed systems. You have the ability to turn your ideas into real-world products that customers use every day. You are passionate about perfecting design in real-time production systems. You are not afraid to take risks and you put customer experience first - always! You love to work hard, to own and to deliver software - from beginning to end, from design to implementation, from implementation to launch to support.

We own the Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling service, a key service within Amazon's Compute Cloud (EC2). Our team in the EC2 Auto Scaling organization delivers customer facing features for EC2 Auto Scaling service related to fleet management and new ways to launch EC2 instances. We are building the next generation of EC2 Auto Scaling, offering even more "cloud intelligence" to our customers.

About Us

Inclusive Team Culture
Here at AWS, we embrace our differences. We are committed to furthering our culture of inclusion. We have ten employeeled 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 14 Leadership Principles, which remind team members to seek diverse perspectives, learn and be curious, and earn trust.

Work/Life Balance
Our team puts a high value on work-live 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.

This position involves on-call responsibilities, typically for one week every two months. 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.

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 in the future.
