Full Time
2 days ago
Job summary
Our team is responsible for the tools to search, browse, and review source code at Amazon. With tens of thousands of software engineers in the company, there's a lot of source code being written every day. All that code has to be reviewed, commented on, approved, and merged. Once it's merged, engineers need to be able to search for it, and view it without having to check it out. In our team, you will help define and implement the products that keep software engineers across the company productive every day. Come join us, and you will learn to build and operate services and websites at Amazon scale!

On a typical day, you may:
  • Learn and use cutting-edge AWS technologies like Lambda and Step Functions
  • Discuss and design a feature requested by customers
  • Implement code and tests for a service
  • Ensure operational readiness of a service
  • Resolve impending issues before customers notice them
  • Engage with customers to help them understand and use a feature
  • Craft a plan to evolve or deprecate a service
  • Collaborate with other Builder Tools teams to provide a smooth developer experience

We offer flexibility in working hours and encourage you to find your own balance between your work and personal lives.

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.
