Amazon Web Services Senior Software Development Engineer – AWS IoT SiteWise Team in Seattle, Washington
Come and build solutions that enable digital transformation for Industrial IoT!
Come and help us build systems that will empower our customers to use their IoT data to optimize their businesses! AWS IoT SiteWise is a fast growing multidisciplinary team addressing industrial customer needs to transform physical operations into self-learning autonomous systems, through a combination of distributed software engineering, edge computing, and applied research. We are looking for senior software engineers for several teams to lead system design, drive a high technical standard, collaborate with customers to iterate early architectures, mentor junior staff, and craft/ship great code. If this is intriguing, read on.
Industrial systems are the new high tech. Physical operations generate petabytes of data across increasingly dynamic processes and require 1000s of sophisticated multi-variate decisions a second. We believe that democratizing advanced process analytics and the IoT technologies that convert physical state to digital measurements, will fuel a new dynamic, diverse manufacturing sector to provide interesting jobs, products and a robust distributed economic engine.
Our technical challenges involve back-end software engineering, edge computing, applied science, and user interface development. We need to develop and apply quantitative algorithms (e.g. machine learning, computer vision, AR/VR) to make industrial process analysis relevant and actionable for operations engineers. We need to build software and information systems to manage industrial data, train models and apply them to critical operations at industrial scale. We need to build intuitive, responsive user interfaces that bridge the gap of machine and human data scale so that workers across the skill spectrum can be effective and included in this digital transformation of industry.
As a senior member of the team, you can have a huge impact on everything from the functionality we deliver for our customers, to the architecture of our systems, to the algorithms we employ, to the culture we build.
Building a High-Performing & Inclusive Team Culture
You should be passionate about attracting & developing a world-class team that welcomes, celebrates, and leverages a diverse set of backgrounds and skillsets to deliver results. Driving results through others is your primary responsibility, and doing so in a way that builds on our inclusive culture is key to our long term success.
We value work-life balance. We’re flexible when people occasionally need to work from home. We generally keep core in-office hours from 10am to 5pm. We are builder-operators of our services at AWS and have a modest on-call rotation where you’ll participate approximately once every 2 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. This is incredibly important to us because a stable operational load is indicative of high service reliability for our customers.
Mentorship & 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. We’re committed to the growth and development of every member of IoT. You will have the opportunity to contribute to the culture and direction of the entire IoT org and deliver site-wide initiatives that will improve the life of all of our teams.
IoT is a growth environment - we’re hiring and scaling rapidly to meet the needs of our customers. If you are excited to take on new, ambiguous projects with multi-industry impact, please reach out!
