The Amazon EC2 team is seeking a Full-stack Engineer to create beautiful customer facing products and innovate to improve experiences for millions of users. The EC2 Console Development team is based in Cape Town, South Africa and builds and operates the web-based EC2 Console, one of the most widely used AWS consoles.
Our mission is to enable our customers to learn, build, deploy, monitor and manage their EC2 infrastructure. We use rich data drawn from customer and product research as well as real time analytics to monitor and anticipate our customers’ needs. We then design and build innovative solutions for our customers using the latest web based technologies.
In this role, you will develop new features and improvements for the EC2 console, working with your team, product managers and UX designers to build web-based products that delight our customers. You will own customer facing features through the entire life-cycle, from design, implementation, testing, deployment and into production. You will work to optimize applications for performance and reliability.
In your first few months in the EC2 Console, you will design and develop new features. You may help to migrate code to our new React based environment, and you’ll join your team’s on-call rotation, helping to support the console and improve our tooling and monitoring systems.
Here at AWS, 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 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.
Our team also puts a high value on work-life balance. Striking a healthy balance between your personal and professional life is crucial to your happiness and success here, which is why we aren’t focused on how many hours you spend at work or online. Instead, we’re happy to offer a flexible schedule so that you can have a more productive and well-balanced life—both in and outside of work. We engage with colleagues all over the world, meaning we accommodate different time zones. We rotate our on-call responsibilities within our development teams, which means that you would need to be contactable outside of work hours every 4-6 weeks.
