The challenges SDEs solve for at AWS are big and influence millions of customers and their customers around the world.

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.
