Job summary
Come work in a start-up like environment building a new AWS service in the area of data sharing, privacy, and analytics! This is an opportunity to design an AWS service from the ground up while working closely with a talented cross functional team (backend/frontend engineers, product managers, and UX designers). You can learn more about the details of this impactful new initiative after you apply.

We are looking for a strong Front-End Engineer with experience building secure, scalable solutions that delight customers. As a foundational member of the team, you will have broad ownership and design/implement solutions that contribute directly to our service launch.

Our team is perfect for individuals looking to work in a dynamic, start-up like environment that also leverages the resources of Amazon. Similar to a start-up, our engineers will wear many hats, move fast, and have a direct connection between their work and our customer experience/product’s profitability. Additionally, they get the benefits of Amazon competitive salary and great benefits!

The ideal candidate should have experience with building scalable front ends using React. We build on top of a foundational design system to deliver a user interface that delights our customers. This is a great opportunity to build at AWS scale!

In addition to strong technical knowledge, the ideal candidate should thrive in a fast paced start-up like environment and be passionate about solving ambiguous problems.

Please note that this position can be based out of any of these locations: New York City, Seattle, Bay area, Austin, Boston, Atlanta, Arlington/DC, Jersey City, Vancouver, and Toronto.

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 we 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 14 Leadership Principles, which remind team members to seek diverse perspectives, learn and be curious, and earn trust.

Work/Life Balance:
Our team also puts a high value on work-life balance. Striking a healthy balance between your personal and professional life is crucial to your happiness and success here, which is why we aren’t focused on how many hours you spend at work or online. Instead, we’re happy to offer a flexible schedule so you can have a more productive and well-balanced life—both in and outside of work. This position involves on-call responsibilities, typically for one week every two 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.

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. Our senior members enjoy one-on-one mentoring and thorough, but kind, code reviews. 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.

Key job responsibilities
  • Leading design, implementation, testing, and delivery of front ends in the data sharing, privacy and analytics space.
  • Participating in code and design reviews.
  • Training/mentoring teammates as well as other engineering teams.
  • Working directly with customers and dependencies to ensure quality delivery.
  • Learning!

About the team
We care about career growth and strive to provide engineers with opportunities that require learning new skills and surrounding them with talented individuals who can provide guidance if needed.

We believe perfect is a moving target and use mechanisms (sprint retrospectives, 1:1’s, and anonymous feedback) to ensure we’re constantly iterating towards it. It’s not enough to be a great team; we also need to incorporate change to ensure we stay one!

Our team is primarily in NYC, but we are hiring in many locations and restrict meetings to times that are friendly for all continental US time zones. If your location has enough employees, we’ll expect you to go in 1-2 times per week, but understand life happens and you sometimes won’t be able to.

  • Proven track record building large-scale, highly available, highly reliable security-focused front ends.
  • Hands-on experience with React.
  • Experience in a fast paced start-up culture and demonstrated ability to achieve stretch goals in a highly innovative and fast paced environment.
  • Demonstrated leadership abilities in an engineering environment in driving operational excellence/best practices and mentoring other team members
  • Experience communicating with users, other technical teams, and management to collect requirements, describe software product features, and transform them into technical designs.
  • Excellent leadership, verbal and written communication skills
  • Ability to lead and focus a team of experienced engineers, leading them to a common technical goal
  • A thirst for knowledge and continuous improvement.
