Senior Software Development Engineer: Elastic Block Store Data Services (AWS)

Come and build the future with us as we change the way customers move and transform their EBS data at never before seen scale.

EBS customers frequently need to move or transform their underlying data whether its accelerating volume creation from snapshots using Fast Snapshot Restore, increasing their database storage or changing their volume type through Elastic volumes, or encrypting their volumes using AWS managed keys. Our team creates solutions that enable and simplify EBS customer workflows.

Work/Life Balance

EBS Data Services values work-life balance. Most days, our entire team is co-located in the Boston office, but we're also flexible when people occasionally need to work from home.

We generally keep core in-office hours from 10am to 4pm. Some of the team come in earlier and the rest of us stay later. We are builder-operators of our services at AWS and have a modest on-call rotation where you'll participate once every 2 months.

Energizing and Interesting Technical Problems

You will be working on enabling your team to build and operate large scale systems that move and transform customer volume data and accelerate access to their data. You'll be working to provide solutions to both internal and external customers and engage deeply with other teams within EBS, S3, EC2, and many other services. It's humbling and energizing to provide data movement solutions to customers at AWS scale.

Mentorship & Career Growth

We're committed to the growth and development of every member of EBS Data Services, and that includes our engineers. You will have the opportunity to contribute to the culture and direction of the entire EBS org and deliver initiatives that will improve the life of all of our teams.

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