Who are we?
AWS Connectivity Services group. We are inventing the future of wireless networking and are looking for a Senior Front-End Engineer to bring our vision into reality. We are building the next-generation user experience for new Wireless Communications systems in the AWS space. Our goal is to provide the best technologies for our customers to connect people.
What will you do?
You will work backward from customer needs and enable customers to achieve next-level results for the next generation of communications systems. You will be responsible for designing software and user experience, holding the code quality high, and optimizing our development processes to serve our customers better. You will provide technical leadership and will guide more junior engineers.
Why will it matter?
AWS, while a mature business, is growing at an incredibly fast rate, with new businesses starting every
month. AWS Connectivity Services started recently as a new business focusing on fulfilling customer needs in the new emergent Wireless Communications space. Being on the edge of the connectivity innovation is central to AWS success in the new space. We serve a critical function enabling the further growth of AWS cloud.
Why will you love it?
AWS is growing so fast, but we are still in startup mode, and there is plenty of space to innovate and grow;
only the hard problems still exist. You will work with driven people in a dynamic entrepreneurial environment. You will have ownership, not just responsibility; you will work closely with the business to design and implement new features. You will contribute to all aspects of an agile software development life cycle, including design, architecture, development, documentation, testing, and operations.
Who are we looking for?
We are looking for a Senior Front-End engineer who understands the trade-offs between usability, performance, internationalization and localization, cross-browser compatibility, obfuscation and optimization, and cutting-edge user interface implementation. You have a working knowledge of UI design principles and can apply style guides to new interface use cases. You work in collaboration with UI designers on website interface and interactivity. You understand how web applications work, perform and scale. You are comfortable with troubleshooting and problem analysis. You recognize and adopt best practices in front-end development: design, testing, version control, documentation, build, deployment, and operations. You have a working knowledge of the latest UI technologies, frameworks, and concepts. You build an understanding of what users do and why they do it to ensure the solution meets their needs and is fit for purpose.
