Senior Software Development Engineer - Fully Remote US/Canada, EFS File Systems

Job ID: 2061306 | Amazon Dev Center U.S., Inc.

DESCRIPTION

Job summary
Sr. Software Developer (Remote) - Amazon Web Services


Amazon Elastic File System (EFS) is built in Boston, MA. It’s a fully managed service that makes it easy to set up and scale shared file storage in the AWS Cloud. Amazon EFS is designed for a wide variety of use cases: data analytics, video rendering, genomics analysis, web serving, content management, and home directories, to name a few. https://aws.amazon.com/efs/

As a Sr. Software Engineer, you will design and build a service that allows customers to create cloud storage solutions that are secure, reliable, completely elastic, and can grow to petabyte-scale. Delivering a reliable and high-performance service at AWS scale requires engineers with extraordinary technical expertise and boundless creativity. At Amazon, engineers have the opportunity to interact with customers, to understand our business goals, and to innovate rapidly, delivering high-quality and ground-breaking functionality.

Work/Life Balance
Our home office is located in beautiful Boston by the harbor. We generally keep core working hours from 10am to 4pm EST. About half of us prefer to start working early in the day and the other half prefer to start working later in the day.

On-Call Responsibility
This position involves on-call responsibilities, typically for two to three weeks every quarter. 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. We have reduced our paging burden in half over the past year through significant investments in burden reduction.

Mentorship and Career Growth
Our team is dedicated to supporting new team members. Our team has a broad mix of experience levels and Amazon tenures, and we’re building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship.

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 have innovative benefit offerings, and 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
