Amazon Web Services AWS S3 on Outposts Software Development Engineer in Boston, Massachusetts


Come join the Amazon S3 on Outposts Team in our mission to build a scalable and highly durable object storage for the next generation hybrid computing platform. AWS Outposts provide fully managed AWS infrastructure and services to customers in their on-premises data centers. Amazon S3 on Outposts, launched in 2020, provides hybrid object storage enabling customers to store and retrieve data on-premises using the S3 programming model and features. Our team is responsible for delivering this hybrid storage platform on Outposts. As part of the team, you will help architect, design, implement and support S3 features for customers who are building applications that require data to be stored locally for performance or data residency use cases.

We are looking for engineers to solve challenging problems and help evolve and expand the service. As a Software Development Engineer in the team, you will be a key contributor to the growth of the service. You will have the opportunity to work on distributed computing problems, architect and design S3 features for Outposts customers and enhance customer experience through operational excellence. You will be joining an experienced team of engineers that architects and builds solutions at AWS scale. We’re looking for a new teammate who is enthusiastic, empathetic, curious, motivated, reliable, and able to collaborate effectively with a diverse team of peers.

Work/Life Balance

Our team puts a high value on work-life balance. Our entire team is co-located in the Boston Seaport 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.

Mentorship and Career Growth

Our team is dedicated to supporting new team members. Our team has a broad mix of experience levels and Amazon tenures, and we’re building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship. Our senior members truly enjoy mentoring others through one-on-one sessions helping them with their career growth.

On-Call Responsibility

This position involves on-call responsibilities, typically for one week in every six to eight weeks. We don’t like getting paged in the middle of the night or on the weekend, so we work to ensure that our products are exceeding customer expectations. When we do get paged, we work together to resolve the issue and ensure that root cause is addressed systemically.

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.

This is a full-time position and is based in our Boston, MA office located in the Seaport District with parking, easy T access to South Station, and a beautiful view of the Charles River/Harbor.

Come join a smart, innovative team that’s obsessed with serving its customers and is having fun doing so in a fast-paced and collaborative environment!
