Job description


What do we do?

The Envision Engineering team helps customers solve their most interesting business challenges by rapidly developing innovative prototypes using world-class cloud and open-source technologies. We’ve helped customers by using image recognition to find missing persons, Artificial Intelligence to optimize ride shares and Machine Learning to grade exam answers.

We are a team of problem-solvers and builders who work on our customer’s challenges that don’t have cookie-cutter solutions. We often don’t have the answers right away, and are expected to Dive Deep to figure out the best approach. The code we write provides immediate value for customers by showing how technology can solve their problems.

What’s in it for you?

You will have the opportunity to be part of one of the fastest growing, customer obsessed, and innovative companies in the world. You will be able to dive deep into the details on operations and engineering. Everyone is a leader at AWS. You will have a lot of ownership and autonomy. You will face unique challenges, learn from some of the brightest minds in the industry and build deep expertise in the most sought after skills in the market. You will be part of an exceptional team of product managers and engineers where collaboration is highly valued, where innovation is something that happens every day, where taking risks is encouraged, and every day is Day One.

You’ll have access to a wealth of Amazon internal training, including instructor-led courses and talks from experts. This will give you the opportunity to become an AWS expert, gaining valuable expertise in AWS services used in Machine Learning, IoT, image recognition, chat bots, and Big Data. We will provide the environment and support to learn any new tools, libraries or frameworks.

What will you do?
As a Software Development Engineer, you will;
· Design, develop, test and deploy well-architected software
· Feel a real sense of achievement from completing and delivering projects in less time than you thought possible.
· Get hands-on with a range of technologies and practice a range of disciplines: back-end, front-end, DevOps, machine learning, data science, data architecture. We are curious generalists who don’t pigeon-hole ourselves as particular “flavors” of engineer and never say “that’s not my job”.
· Collaborate with customers through full engagements; you’ll learn about their business challenges, rapidly design and develop prototypes to solve them, showcase the functionality you’ve written in demos and finally see the difference you’ve made when customers deploy solutions into their production environments.
· Work with the latest AWS services and open-source technologies to build your prototypes. You’ll always be encouraged to pick the right tools for the job.
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.

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.


· Strong practical understanding of Computer Science fundamentals such as data structures, sorting/searching algorithms, and order analysis
· Experience with Agile Software Development Methodologies
· Ability to audit and provide constructive feedback on technical designs, code, project plans, and project execution
· Demonstrated ability to mentor other software developers to maintain architectural vision and software quality
