AWS is hiring Software Development Engineers to build tools that provide automated architectural guidance for customers. This is a new team, so you will get a chance to help build tools from the ground-up, such as conversational interfaces and ML-enhanced search. We are building a cross-functional team of Applied Scientists, Software Development Engineers, and Solutions Architects to tackle this problem. We have the potential to fundamentally change and improve how AWS' customer-facing technical teams operate.

AWS is one of Amazon’s fastest growing businesses. More than a million active customers, from Airbnb to SAP, use AWS Cloud solutions to deliver flexibility, scalability, and reliability. As a Software Development Engineer at Amazon, your code is held to a high-standard and you are expected to stay up-to-date on the latest technologies. In this role, you will be building a set of tools from the ground up, joining a new team with high potential. We have a huge amount of data at our fingertips, but we require strong engineers working alongside machine learning experts to unlock its potential for advanced, automated customer interactions.

Your peers will also include senior Solutions Architects who have years of experience building complex, AWS-based solutions for enterprises. The applications that you create, combined with the trained models that we develop as a team, will help us better understand how to enhance conversations between AWS customers and technical field roles. In later phases of the project, our goal is to replace basic technical conversations in some contexts with automated architectural guidance, so that our customer-facing technical resources can have more time to focus on the most complex and high-value customer interactions.

The ideal candidate is an experienced and highly-independent software development engineer, who is comfortable working on cross-functional teams and excited about the prospect of building new tools from scratch. You will be able to balance technical leadership with strong business judgment to make the right decisions about technology and methodologies choices. New York City-based candidates are preferred.
