Job summary
Come and join a team of dedicated, friendly engineers building and operating a regionally replicated document store built on Dynamo and OpenSearch. This is a unique opportunity to join an early stage team with a stable but new product early in its life cycle. You will be part of the team growing the feature set and seeing us through exponential growth of our customer base.

A day in the life
You will be creating and maintaining the team culture, setting our quality bar, engineering best practices, and norms. Delivering iteratively on projects that really matter and earning trust with your team and your customers will be the primary ways you measure your own success. Recognizing that there's often more to learn from failure than success, you'll experiment constantly. You will build backend systems using Java based AWS technologies. You will be innovating in fail over strategies, read/write concurrency contention and other problem spaces required for a highly available multi-primary, multi-region, full text searchable data store.

About the team
We are a part of Amazon Issue Management, providing software platforms, web services and web apps that are used by more than 150,000 unique users every day. We own the core software applications and services that Amazon and AWS use to collaborate on, monitor, engage and manage all of software events, agile deliveries, projects, programs, and business processes across the entire company.

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

Work/Life Balance
Our team puts a high value on work-life balance. It isn't about how many hours you spend at home or at work; it's about the flow you establish that brings energy to both parts of your life. 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.

Mentorship & Career Growth
Our team is dedicated to supporting new members. We have a broad mix of experience levels and tenures, and we're building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship. We care about your career growth and strive to assign projects based on what will help each team member develop into a better-rounded professional and enable them to take on more complex tasks in the future.
