Do you want to solve business challenges through innovative technology? Do you enjoy working on cutting-edge, highly distributed systems in a team environment? Do you like working on industry-defining projects that move the needle?

At Amazon, we hire the best minds in technology to innovate and build on behalf of our customers. The focus we have on our customers is why we are one of the world’s most beloved brands – customer obsession is part of our company DNA. Our Software Development Engineers (SDEs) use cutting-edge technology to solve complex problems and get to see the impact of their work first-hand.

The challenges SDEs solve for at Amazon are big and influence millions of customers, sellers, and products around the world. We are looking for individuals who are passionate about creating new products, features, and services from scratch while managing ambiguity and the pace of a company where development cycles are measured in weeks, not years. If this sounds interesting to you, apply and come chart your own path at Amazon.

Key job responsibilities

Collaborate with experienced cross-disciplinary Amazonians to conceive, design, and bring innovative products and services to market.
Design and build innovative technologies in a large distributed computing environment and help lead fundamental changes in the industry.
Build distributed systems that are scalable, fault-tolerant, low cost, and easy to manage/use.
Design and code the right solutions starting with broadly defined problems.
Work in an agile environment to deliver high-quality software.

A day in the life
You start your day by updating the tasks and stories that you own on the team sprint board, then you participate in the daily meeting where you provide updates and you align your priorities with the team’s priorities.

You spend the next couple of hours coding a part of a new feature, then you submit your code for review. Later, you do a thorough review of the code of one of your team mates, adding insights related to their design, the maintainability and the security of their code.

After lunch, you work on a ticket from the team’s queue and after the initial investigation, you call a meeting with engineers from other teams to clarify the path of action.

You respond offline to a question from the product team and you send an email to the leadership pitching an idea and a plan of action on how to improve an operational aspect of the services your team owns.

You end your day knowing that you were able to move the needle once more.

About the team
AWS IAM Identity Center (IdC) helps customers securely create or connect workforce identities and manage their access centrally across AWS accounts and applications. IdC simplifies the administrative complexity of federating and managing permissions separately for each AWS account, allows customers to set up AWS applications from a single interface, and to assign access to their cloud applications from a single place. IdC offers additional identity federation functionality to provide a uniform identity platform for a large set of internal AWS Data, ML & Business applications such as QuickSight, Sagemaker, RedShift and IoT.
