This would have an impact in shaping our resource framework that allows CloudFormation to provision hundreds of AWS services. We are looking for full stack developers to join our amazing team, who excel in a fast-paced and often ambiguous environment where we love pushing the boundaries to innovate, learn while we design and develop new software.You'll get to learn, grow and work with an amazing team to:* Design/develop/iterate on developer tools and services that are used by thousands of AWS users.* Work with and learn many different technologies every day including Java, REST, Go, Python etc..,* Deeply own the full stack and entire lifecycle of our products, from the roadmap to the design/architecture to implementation and continuous iterative development and deployment of both services and web apps.* Interface closely with internal and external customers to quickly drive new products and new features.As a key developer on the team, you will help build CloudFormation services and tools, automation supporting AWS global expansion, as well as deliver new AWS regions.

Most days, our entire team is co-located in the Seattle office, but we're also flexible when people occasionally need to work from home. We generally keep core in-office hours from 10am to 5pm. About half of us come in earlier and the other half of us stay later. We are builder-operators of our services at AWS and have an on-call rotation where you'll participate once every 5-6 weeks. We work together to reduce our on-call load by ensuring that our systems are fault tolerant, and resolve the root cause of an issue so that we don't get paged for the same issue twice.Mentorship and Career GrowthOur team is dedicated to supporting new team members. Our team is a mix of experience levels and Amazon tenures. We set an environment that encourages knowledge sharing and mentorship. Our senior engineers truly enjoy mentoring more junior engineers and engineers from non-traditional backgrounds through one-on-one mentoring and thorough but kind code reviews. We care and try to assign projects and tasks based on what will help each team member develop into a better-rounded engineer and enable them to take on more complex tasks, problems to solve in future.Inclusive Team CultureWe are intentional about attracting, developing and retaining amazing talent from diverse backgrounds. Yes, we do get to build a really cool service, but we also ensure an inclusive and welcoming culture is being developed and followed every day. We are looking for a new teammate who is enthusiastic, empathetic, curious, motivated, reliable and able to work effectively with diverse team of peers; someone who will helpus amplify positive and inclusive team culture further.On-Call ResponsibilityThis position involves on-call responsibilities typically 2 weeks (one week as Primary and another week as Secondary) for every 2 months. We work diligently to ensure our systems are fault tolerant. When we get paged, we work together to resolve root cause so that we don't get paged for the same issue twice.Learn and Be Curious. We have a formal mentor search application that lets you find a mentor that works best for you based on location, job family, job level etc. Your manager can also help you find a mentor or two, because two is better than one.
