Amazon Vacancies 2023 in Cape Town, Western Cape, SA – Senior Software Development Engineer

Website Amazon

Job Summary


Do you get excited about solving challenging problems with global scale? Come join our team of innovative software developers that are building a next generation infrastructure management service that will help internal AWS teams continue to scale and manage their global service footprint. You will have a wide reach as your customers are internal AWS teams located all around the world.

We believe in using the right tools to solve the problem. Java and Python are common languages used in our space, but not limited to these. We believe in leveraging our public AWS services for internal use, so you will get to build with services like S3, EC2, DynamoDB, Step Functions, Lambda, and more.

As an experienced engineer in the team, you will be a technology leader responsible for mentoring engineers in the team, guiding our service’s technology strategy, designing and developing high quality software designs and implementing solutions autonomously to address the ambiguous challenges we encounter. We use an agile approach to deliver value to our internal customers.

At Amazon, we believe learning is never done. You will have access to extensive training material that covers all dimensions of the AWS tools and will be presented with opportunities to leverage and contribute to internal communities, demos and knowledge sharing sessions to assist you in reaching your career goals. Our team is welcoming and supportive towards new team members through mentoring and coaching.

Having career and growth opportunities is a priority, and we have clear growth paths for our technical roles. You will partner with your manager to define and track your career plan.

Most of our team is based in Cape Town. Under normal circumstances, we mostly work from the office, but you will have the flexibility to manage your own time. Occasionally we work with our colleagues across the world meaning we accommodate different time-zones. This position involves on-call responsibilities. We continuously prioritize efforts to automate ourselves out of operational responsibilities to ensure the impact is minimal.

We are looking for an enthusiastic, motivated, curious engineer to join us building this new service. Apply now and come build with us!
