Come build the future of cloud with the Amazon Linux Team!
The Amazon Linux team builds, maintains and distributes both internal and external (public) versions of Amazon Linux Distributions. Externally, Amazon Linux Distributions serve as the reference implementation for Linux offerings on EC2, the Elastic Compute Cloud that is the basis for much of Amazon Web Services (AWS). Internally, Amazon Linux serves as the primary foundation upon which much of Amazon's infrastructure is built. We're also responsible for tools associated with the performance characterization, telemetry, qualification, build and deployment of our Linux Distributions.
Software Development Engineers work with technical leaders to refine technical direction, and then follow through with detailed analysis, designs, and superior code. They are equally comfortable leading small, focused project teams as well as making major direct contributions to the project. They deliver features with minimal direct oversight.
The baseline individual for this role is expected to be comfortable with Linux fundamentals, building distributed systems and automation (preferably in Python or similar languages). Willingness to learn and contribute to Linux Packaging (RPM /Debian) are a must.
Experience with system development (in C,C, Rust etc), Linux packaging (RPM/Debian) and open source contributions is a plus.
This team creates the very core of the cloud - come help us make history!
Location: Open to Seattle, WA; Herndon, VA; and Boston, MA areas.
Inclusive Team Culture
Here at AWS, we embrace our differences. We are committed to furthering our culture of inclusion. We have ten employee-led affinity groups, reaching 40,000 employees in over 190 chapters globally. We have innovative benefit offerings, and host annual and ongoing learning experiences, including our Conversations on Race and Ethnicity (CORE) and AmazeCon (gender diversity) conferences. Amazon's culture of inclusion is reinforced within our 16 Leadership Principles, which remind team members to seek diverse perspectives, learn and be curious, and earn trust.
Our team puts a high value on work-life balance. It isn't about how many hours you spend at home or at work; it's about the flow you establish that brings energy to both parts of your life. We believe striking the right balance between your personal and professional life is critical to life-long happiness and fulfillment. We offer flexibility in working hours and encourage you to find your own balance between your work and personal lives.
Mentorship & Career Growth
Our team is dedicated to supporting new members. We have a broad mix of experience levels and tenures, and we're building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship. We care about your career growth and strive to assign projects based on what will help each team member develop into a better-rounded professional and enable them to take on more complex tasks in the future.
