Front-End Engineer, Amazon Monitoring and Observability

Job ID: 2664258 | Amazon Development Center U.S., Inc.

DESCRIPTION

Come change the way the world sees the Cloud! The CloudWatch Logs team builds and manages some of the largest logging services in the world. CloudWatch Logs allows AWS users to ingest their application and AWS logs in a highly scalable, durable, and reliable service for enterprise scale; find and analyze the right log to solve operational problems with a suite of machine-learning powered log analytics capabilities with automated log pattern analysis and anomaly detection; and leverage natural language query generation powered by generative AI. On the Logs Front-End team you’ll get to build critical monitoring products that impact every single AWS customer, both internally and externally – there’s not many team’s that can say that!

Key job responsibilities
As a Front-End Engineer, you will deliver working features spanning the full software lifecycle including working backwards from the customer, software design, implementation, testing, deployment, operations, and documentation. You will collaborate with cross functional partners such as designers and product managers. You will coach others on producing high quality code, using processes such as code review as a teaching mechanism. You can balance constraints, limiting the use of short-term workarounds and use common UI design patterns to decrease friction between the customer and software. You ensure the software you produce can be maintained and extended by those not familiar with the code by writing clear documentation and making good design choices. You train new team members on how your software is constructed, how it operates, and how it fits into the bigger picture.

On-Call Responsibility
This position involves on-call responsibilities, typically for one week every two months. 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. When we do get paged, we work together to resolve the root cause so that we don’t get paged for the same issue twice.

A day in the life
Working closely with your agile development team and cross functional partners to deliver impactful products to customers. Our ideal candidate is excited about the incredible opportunity that cloud monitoring represents and is deeply passionate about delivering the highest quality products.
