AWS Route 53 Domains is looking for a Senior Software Development Engineer to join our 6 person team in Vancouver.
Our teams owns the services, console and APIs used by AWS customers to purchase and manage their domain names. Our services are used globally by companies large and small as well as developers like yourself.
On any given day, we use Java, SWF, DynamoDB, and Lambda, as well as other public AWS services and a host of Amazon-internal tools. We don't expect you to be an expert in all of these technologies, but we do expect you to be excited to learn about them!
This position involves on-call responsibilities, typically for one week every month. We don't like getting paged in the middle of the night or on the weekend, so we work to ensure that our systems are fault tolerant.

We all enjoy helping each other grow and continue to raise the bar for coding and operational standards in our team. You will have the opportunity to learn from others while bringing your own novel capabilities and perspectives. We're looking for a new teammate who will help us continue building our positive team environment.
We are always looking to learn and grow. You will have opportunity to grow your skills through various online and in person trainings/courses as well as network at conferences with some of the to people in their respective fields.
Most of our team is co-located in the Vancouver office with a few team members in Seattle. We value work-life balance and generally keep core in-office hours from 10am to 4pm. Some of us come in earlier while others stay later. We are also flexible when people occasionally need to work from home.
On regular basis we also like to get out and have fun. On more recent occasions we have done Go Karting, Dragon Boating, a Summer BBQ and even archery tag.
