Job summary
Are you interested in building new services for Amazon FinSpace that can make a multi-million-dollar impact to our customers’ bottom line and disrupts the status quo? FinSpace is a new service that helps customers track and analyze their data to solve some of their most critical business problems.

Financial services organizations analyze data from internal data stores like portfolio, actuarial, and risk management systems as well as petabytes of data from third-party data feeds, such as historical securities prices from stock exchanges. It can take months to find the right data, get permissions to access the data in a compliant way, and prepare it for analysis.

In addition to strong technical knowledge, you will be someone who thrives in a fast paced start up-like environment, and passionate about solving ambiguous, challenging problems that have not been solved before.

As a SDE on the team, you will:
  • Review projects' ability to deliver robust and scalable solutions toward this vision, learning and incorporating new technologies as appropriate.
  • Build relationships with Development Managers, Engineers and Technical Project Managers across various AWS service teams.
  • Participate in the architecture, development, testing, deployment, and delivery of large-scale global software applications, systems, platforms, services or technologies.
  • Participate in Agile project management methodologies to provide technical leadership and project management for all aspects of the software development lifecycle (SDLC).
  • Build, manage, and develop world-class engineers including hiring recommendations and guide and mentor engineers and project managers within and outside of the team.
  • Ensure high quality design reviews which meet business and architectural goals and drive critical feedback on architecture and design issues.
  • Participate in strategic planning to achieve technical and business goals with team, leadership chain, and with customers
