Applied Scientist, Automated Reasoning, EC2

Job ID: 2642966 | Amazon Development Center U.S., Inc.


Are you passionate about applying formal verification, program analysis, constraint-solving, and theorem proving to real world problems? Do you want to create products that reduce complexity for customers, increase customer security posture, and are provably correct? If so, then we have an exciting opportunity for you to leverage Automated Reasoning techniques across EC2 and EC2 Networking.

In this role, you will interact with internal teams and external customers to understand their networking requirements. You will apply your knowledge to propose solutions, create software prototypes, and productize prototypes into production systems using software development tools and methodologies. In addition, you will support and scale your solutions to meet the ever growing demand of customer use. You will interact with the broader academic community, and have the opportunity to publish your work.

Inclusive Team Culture
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 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 balance. It isn’t about how many hours you spend at home or at work; it’s about the flow you establish that brings energy to both parts of your life. We believe striking the right balance between your personal and professional life is critical to life-long happiness and fulfillment. We offer flexibility in working hours and encourage you to find your own balance between your work and personal lives.
This position involves some on-call responsibilities, typically for one week every two months. We work to ensure we don’t get paged for the same issue twice and that you have time to recover if you are paged at an odd hour.

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. Our senior members enjoy one-on-one mentoring and thorough, but kind, code reviews. We care about your career growth and strive to assign projects based on what will help each team member develop into a better-rounded engineer and enable them to take on more complex tasks in the future.

We are open to hiring candidates to work out of one of the following locations:

Minneapolis, MN, USA | Portland, OR, USA


- PhD
- Knowledge of programming languages such as C/C++, Python, Java or Perl
