Systems Development Engineers at Amazon is a unique role which organically emerged as the company evolved. Inspiration for the Systems Development Engineer came from Systems Engineers who “built” unique technology to solve business and customer problems.
Systems Development Engineers perform traditional Systems Engineering and writes or develops scripts, applications, or mechanisms to manage infrastructure. This role was created for the “builder” population of Systems Engineers who go beyond using basic tools and GUIs to implement infrastructure as code and even server-less systems.
Systems Development Engineers are expected to develop best practices, refine operational procedures and constantly innovate proactively. You will continuously identify areas of growth within the existing frameworks, tools and processes to develop further technical mechanisms to reduce waste and continuously improve. Our ideal candidate is autonomous, detail oriented, possesses strong written and verbal communication skills and has experience working at scale.
This is an excellent opportunity to join Amazon's world class technical teams, working with some of the best and brightest engineers while also developing your skills and furthering your career within one of the most innovative and progressive technology companies anywhere.
-Solving problems at scale excites you.
-You are interested in being part of a high-bar team with global responsibility for the Tier-1 services used across all of Amazon’s businesses.
-You do not implement specs from analysts and architects – you talk to customers and design solutions to their problems. You automate and innovate.
-You believe that the craft of software engineering is about writing code right the first time. For you, code reviews and automated testing are not chores – they are a core part of writing great software.
-You do not throw your code over the wall. You launch it, own it, support it and make it incrementally better for the benefit of customers.
-You enjoy working in a flexible, fast-paced, collaborative team environment.
