Senior Front-End Developer

Job ID: 1571449 | Amazon Web Services, Inc.

DESCRIPTION

The AWS Intelligent and Advanced Computing Technologies (IACT) organization is growing an application development team.

Our organization specializes in solving elusive problems. We are a hybrid team of machine learning, quantum computing and high performance computing professionals who directly support AWS customers with custom and off-the-shelf applications.

Our team offers the opportunity to engage directly with advanced technologies projects (e.g. computer vision, natural language processing, quantum simulation, optimization) while supporting AWS customers (e.g. startups, Fortune 500, nonprofit, etc.) across all industries.

You should be ready to collaborate with customer and design teams on UX design tasks, and you should be ready to take ownership of front-end development from prototyping through production-ready delivery. You should feel empowered to collaborate through ambiguous customer environments and understand how IACT applications best appeal to customer operations.

Within AWS, you will work closely with Machine Learning, Quantum Computing, and High Performance Computing teams within Professional Services, and externally, you can expect to work with customer product managers, architects, and executives (e.g. Dir., VP, CxO).


Inclusive Team Culture
Here at AWS, we embrace our differences. We are committed to furthering our culture of inclusion. We have thirteen employee-led affinity groups, reaching 85,000 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 16 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-life harmony. Striking a healthy balance between your personal and professional life is crucial to your happiness and success here. We are a customer-obsessed organization—leaders start with the customer and work backwards. They work vigorously to earn and keep customer trust. As such, this is a customer facing role in a hybrid delivery model. Project engagements include remote delivery methods and onsite engagement that will include travel to customer locations as needed.

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. We care about your career growth and strive to assign projects based on what will help each team member develop into a better-rounded professional and enable them to take on more complex tasks in the future.
